I’m greek – if I don’t like Halloumi there’s a problem. Same for our condiments of Tara, Hummus and Tzatziki, as well a good fresh salad. Luckily, I fall in line with tradition. 😋 I absolutely love the Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern flavours and food approach. This meal includes soft grilled Cypriot Halloumi on a bed of salad, up against a less well known but equally amazing Turkish condiment – Beetroot Tarator. Think Tzatziki, but with with the amazing flavour, colour and health benefits of Beetroot. Add in some crispy yet fluffy Sweet Potato wedges and some chicken… and Voila! A perfect post workout lunch or summery dinner. 😋
For a smaller lower calorie option, reduce to 60g Halloumi, 1x Chicken Grill and 200g Sweet Potato. This will save you 451 calories, whilst not sacrificing on the flavour experience whatsoever.

- Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato due to it’s high fibre content that slows the absorption of the carbs.
- Chicken is a great source of healthy lean protein. With 31 grams of protein per 100 grams, is one of the best foods for protein. A good source of Magnesium, Vitamin A, Potassium, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus and a variety of Vitamin B’s, with trace amounts of calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B-12, vitamin E and vitamin D.
- Beetroot is a good source of iron, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants, in addition to helping lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance.
- Goats Milk Yoghurt – Goats do not contain a certain mutation in the milk that most cows do, making their milk and yoghurt much more digestion friendly and look uncannily similar at a DNA level to human milk.
- Garlic being consumed on a daily basis (in food or raw) helps to lower cholesterol levels because of the anti-oxidant properties of Allicin. It is also immensely beneficial to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
- Carrots are a rich source of Beta carotene – a powerful antioxidant that can also be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin.
