Mediterranean Chicken Bowls with Lemon-Tahini Dressing

These Mediterranean Chicken Bowls with Lemon-Tahini Dressing are so good! They’re super simple and low-carb, and they’re a definite crowd-pleaser. I’m thinking about making this for easy lunches or dinners, since it’s Whole30 and super easy. If you love carbs (like me and every other runner in existence), you could (and should) add potatoes, sweet potatoes, or carrots.

This is one of my favorite Whole30 recipes, because it’s simultaneously easy and flavorful. Anything with Mediterranean flavors is automatically delicious, but this recipe is extra delicious because it’s super healthy. Right? That’s how it works, yeah? I mean, you can eat a bunch of this recipe without feeling guilty because it’s literally a salad . . . a salad that you’ll actually enjoy eating!

So yeah, it’s Whole30, which is super convenient for me because I’m doing the September Whole30 right now. If you’re doing it too, I’d encourage you to make these Mediterranean Chicken Bowls with Lemon-Tahini Dressing!

My Whole30 is going pretty well! It’s just a reset, and I’m kind of surprised by how “normal” I feel. For a while, I thought I had kind of derailed from Paleo/Whole30 because I ate more GF grains and dairy than usual. Of course, I could feel my “Sugar Dragon” kind of taking over, too. It’s been a week since I’ve started the Whole30, though, and I feel fine. This is a nice reminder to eat TONS of fresh vegetables and limit sugar, etc.

I mentioned in my newsletter last week that I hoped the Whole30 would help get rid of my headaches, but I doubt it will. My headaches are a result of stress and a lack of sleep. I didn’t start getting them until about a month ago, when school started. 🙁

Mediterranean Chicken Bowls with Lemon-Tahini DressingThis is the first year I’ve gotten these headaches, which makes sense since my course load/extracurricular commitments are greater than they’ve ever been. My performance in cross-country has been suffering too, which is why I’ve decided to cut back on blog posts for the next few months. Until I have time to write more posts, I’ll publish one new recipe per week. I’ll also send out a bonus recipe every other week or so in my newsletter. Please sign up for that so you can get more than four recipes a month!

Thank you all so much for sticking with me through all of this! I’m disappointed that I can’t post more, especially since I’m so excited about fall recipes. However, I have to prioritize my mental/physical health. That starts by cutting back where I can and getting more sleep.

Recipe Notes

I used my Paleo, Whole30, bean-free Cauliflower Hummus, which is very similar to "real" hummus. If you'd prefer to eat real hummus, feel free!
