Lunch is one of those meals that’s low on my totem pole.  As much as I love soup and salad, there’s only so much a girl can take before she gets bored with the same old, same old!     

These Greek chicken cauliflower rice bowls are ideal for a healthy meal prep lunch that isn’t soup or salad…and they’re packed with Greek ingredients like:

Feta Cheese
Cucumber
Roasted Red Peppers
Banana Peppers
Kalamata Olives
Chickpeas
Red Onion
Grilled Lemon Chicken
Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt Cucumber)

A big bowl of cauliflower rice topped with Greek ingredients likes roasted red peppers, red onion, feta cheese, kalamata olives, cucumbers and tomatoes.

I told you these bowls were packed!  Of course you don’t’ have to add alllll those listed ingredients, feel free to omit or add anything you’d like.

I tend to stick to low carb meals for my lunches, so I can indulge a little more for dinner, that’s why these low carb cauliflower rice bowls are one of my favorite go-to lunch recipes. 

Prepping them ahead and portioning them into separate containers for meal prep, makes them easy to grab and go in the morning, for one less thing I have to worry about (while I’m still half asleep getting ready in the morning)

These Greek chicken cauliflower rice bowls are a cross between a Greek salad and a falafel/chicken gyro. 

There’s an awesome Greek place John and I love to stop at every once and a while (and everyone else ‘cause the line’s always out the door).  They make the BEST falafels and gyros I’ve ever had and you pick which of the many toppings you want in your pocket.

I must’ve been craving one of their delicious pockets, because that’s where these Greek cauliflower rice bowls were inspired from: a healthier, low carb version, still with all the flavorful, colorful toppings.

My favorite part about these low carb Greek meal prep bowls?The tzatziki sauce!

Tzatziki sauce is yogurt cucumber sauce, usually with dill. It adds a light, creamy freshness to these cauliflower rice bowls.

I’m using a homemade Tzatziki Sauce recipe from Gimme Some Oven. You can also buy it already made.

Containers filled with cauliflower Rice, Greek chicken, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers and chickpeas. They’re perfectly packed for an easy meal prep for lunch on the go.

Have you tried my low carb Mexican cauliflower rice bowls?  They have the same great meal prep idea, but made with Mexican seasonings, corn and black beans.
