6 Quick and Easy Mediterranean Diet Lunch Ideas

Tomato Salad with Grilled Halloumi and Herbs

Tomatoes and salty grilled halloumi are brought together in this Mediterranean-inspired salad. Try serving it with grains or greens for a satisfying, portable lunch.

Harissa Chickpea Stew with Eggplant and Millet

The meaty eggplant makes a fine stand-in for actual meat in this plant-based recipe, which still happens to be high in protein from quinoa. But if you don’t like eggplant, you can swap it out for another vegetable like zucchini or squash.

Grilled Lemon-Herb Chicken and Avocado Salad

A salad is nothing without its toppings, so this Mediterranean diet–friendly number is piled high with all the fixings. Prep the grilled chicken, avocado, barley, cherry tomatoes and red onion ahead of time and it will come together in a flash.

 5-Minute Heirloom Tomato Toast

Since this Mediterranean meal is super minimal, using the freshest ingredients you can find will ensure it tastes as good as possible. (Bonus points if you head to the farmers market for some gorgeous cherry tomatoes.)

Greek Chicken and Rice Skillet

This chicken skillet, packed with feta and olives, happens to be an excellent Mediterranean diet dinner recipe. But you should definitely eat any leftovers as lunch, trust.

 Mini Chicken Shawarma

These bites are small, so it’s totally reasonable to have more than one. And why not? They’re full of the good stuff, like cumin-seasoned chicken, lemony Greek yogurt sauce and crisp cucumbers.
