7 Mediterranean Diet foods to eat while you are watching other people exercise

Are you spending a lot of time watching other people exercise?  When I go to parties to watch sporting events, I notice that the food is usually Doritos, potato chips, M&M’s, processed dips, lite beer and sugary desserts.  The problem here, for me, is that if there is no alternative I will eat all of those foods and as the athletes are celebrating their wins on t.v., I am down for the count with heartburn and bloating.

Here are some Mediterranean Diet recipes to eat while you are watching other people exercise that will fill you up, give you energy, and not make you miss your cheez curls.

Greek Lamb, Tomato and Onion Skewers

Mediterranean Diet Recipes: Lamb, Tomato and Onion Skewers

These juicy morsels of lamb skewered with tomatoes and onions are great for any party.  I usually serve this with a Greek Salad or Roasted Cauliflower (or both).

Mediterranean Diet Recipes: Scallops with Pesto

Pan-Fried Scallops with Hand Chopped Pesto

This is a special recipe to make when you are inviting people over that you really like.  Super delicious with corn on the cob, a simple salad with Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette and bread to dip in the pesto.

Mediterranean Diet Recipes: Tzatziki

Tzatziki

This Greek dip makes a delicious and filling appetizer or snack. It goes very well with dolmades (grape leaves) or simply served with pita or cut vegetables.  Also, you can serve it with Chicken Souvlaki which makes a meal in itself.

Mediterranean Fried Potato, Tomato and Arugula Salad

One of my favorite party salads.  This is a winner with both men and women.  Serve it with chicken or fish or eat it on its own with baked garlic and olive oil bread.

 Mediterranean Diet Recipes: Falafel with Tahini Sauce

Falafel with Tahini Sauce

If you want the feeling of eating something fried, but want it to be good for you, then try falafel with tahini sauce.  Healthy beans, herbs and spices fried on medium heat in olive oil.  I like a simple salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing to go with it.  Tip:  Make enough, they are addicting!
