These Greek Chicken Cauliflower bowls are seriously my new favorite lunch/dinner. You know when you make something and it’s just so simple and delicious you wonder ‘Why the heck didn’t I try this sooner?’
Yea. That’s how I feel about this recipe!
These greek chicken cauliflower rice bowls come together in about 30 minutes, are SO full of flavor, and are just downright yummy!
I love dinner recipes that are simple to make and packed with flavor. This recipe checks off both boxes which makes me happy.
It also is Whole30 friendly, paleo, gluten/grain/dairy free, and just SO yummy. It’s the perfect mix of protein, fats, and veggies while also having that amazing Mediterranean flair to it!
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of visiting at a new ShopRite in town to learn all about their products, meet with their dietitian on staff + tour the store.
As with any stores, I was drawn in to ShopRite by their prices, (you know I’m all about eating healthy on a budget!) but after learning more about the brand and what they do for their customers, I love them even more!
Upon arriving at ShopRite I was greeted by their dietitian, Kristen who I was so impressed with. Did you guys know they have a dietitian on staff in almost every store? And that it’s FREE to take advantage of their services?!
One of my favorite things that ShopRite had was precut veggies, including precut cauliflower rice. Now, don’t get me wrong. I know you can put your cauliflower in a food processor and do it yourself… but have you ever done that? It’s makes a giant mess and takes a while to clean up.
When you need convenience – already riced cauliflower is the way to go!
While I was wandering through the store there were a few other items that caught my eye including delicious fresh cherry tomatoes, and some canned kalamata olives + marinated artichoke hearts.
Now.. regardless of where you shop, you have to give this recipe a try. These Greek Chicken Cauliflower Rice Bowls are LOADED with flavor, so simple to make, and taste absolutely amazing. I think you’re going to love them!
Substitutions for greek chicken cauliflower rice bowls:
You can sub cauliflower rice with regular rice, but this dish will not be paleo/whole30/keto
You can sub fresh herbs for dried. Use the same amount.
You can omit olive or artichoke hearts if you prefer the meal without them, simply bulk up on tomatoes or add in more of one or the other.
I love that ShopRite has a dietitian on staff for a free consult! I still need to find a time to get mine! And I loooove these cauli rice Greek bowls. I have recently become obsessed with cauli rice (using it in place of bulgur in my tabouli recipe)
I made the. Maple mustard chicken today! It was so easy and so yummy! I used broccoli instead of Brussels sprouts. I also put the potatoes in the air fryer for. A few minutes after cooking. So crispy and delish! Love the sweet touch to the flavor. ??
The Best Healthy Fast Food Options
Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.
Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.
In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.
Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.
Sandwich with cheese and vegetables
One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.
Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.
Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.
A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.
Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.
According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.
One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.

Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.
Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.
Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.
For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.
McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.

BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.
Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate
Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.
Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.
The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.
Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
