are you ready for another one of Our core protein recipes?
Getting a healthy meal on the table every night can be a daunting task. Face it, you are way too busy.
This constant busy-ness is what prompted my love of meal prep – even in college I was a meal prepper. I worked nearly full-time and went to school more than full-time as well. I spent a lot of time commuting and studying, there was just no way to survive without having leftovers to pack.
Even back when I was cooking just for myself, I always cooked my proteins with versatility in mind. I still to this day think about proteins as the cornerstone of my meal. Once I settle on chicken or fish, or whatever sounds great, I decide what I'm going to make.
This recipe Uses another one of our custom spice blends
I cannot stress enough how spice blends can take your cooking game to the next level. Making cooking easy is all about finding ways to add flavor without needing hours to build a sauce. This is exactly why I make so many custom spice blends.
I'm a food blogger and cooking is my jam – I can easily spend hours in the kitchen doing prep work, and be happy as a clam. However, I know most people just want to cook something fast and eat already – hopefully it's healthy but mostly it needs to be fast and easy. I totally get it, the reality is that while I love to spend hours in the kitchen leisurely preparing a fantastic and complicated meal, I'm also a business owner, a coach, a super-busy mom, and a wife. I need to make dinner and it needs to be really fast and uncomplicated.

this recipe is AWESOME IN a Beast bowL
The Mediterranean Beast Bowl is centered on the fantastic Mediterranean spice mix. I usually make this with a delicious mahimahi, but I've also used chicken and even tofu. Beast Bowls are one awesome way to use this core protein recipe, but this fish is just as tasty with a side of broccoli. Don't skip the lemon tahini dressing though, it's pretty magical!
Imagine this: incredibly flavorful and flaky mahimahi, lemon tahini dressing, a few selectively chosen vegetables adding to the mediterranean flair, and quinoa for some healthy carbs.
