Meals during Passover can be challenging due to the dietary restrictions. Here are some delicious recipes that will make the holiday a big hit.
Flattened Chicken With Almond Paprika Vinaigrette
This chicken recipe is not only a great option for any Passover meal, but it is a delicious choice any time of the year as a lunch (over a salad), or dinner option. Protein provides plenty of protein to help keep you satiated, and the delicious combination of herbs and spices in this recipe brings plenty of flavor.
Roasted lamb with fennel, strawberries, and rhubarb
In moderation, lamb is an excellent source of protein and contains vital nutrients like iron, zinc, selenium and vitamin B12. One ounce of lamb, grass-fed, has the same number of calories as grass-fed beef but actually has more health-promoting Omega-3 fatty acids. But, it does have higher levels of saturated of saturated fat than beef, so keep the portions on the smaller side.
Quinoa breakfast bowl
Quinoa is an often overlooked grain that provides a unique texture while also contributing loads of protein and fiber. It has a low glycemic index, which helps maintain a steady blood sugar level. The egg in this recipe provides excellent protein, as does the avocado, which is also considered a “healthy fat” (learn more about different dietary fats here).
Zucchini chicken pinwheels
Zucchini is high in antioxidants, can help regulate digestion, and helps reduce blood sugar levels. This recipe also incorporates chicken, which will provide plenty of protein. Basil and tomato round out the recipe, showcasing delicious, fresh springtime flavors. Although most often made as a side dish, this would be a great lunch option.
Lemon chicken soup with dumplings
Soups are a wonderful addition to any meal as they fill you up, but aren’t as heavy as, let’s say, a pasta dish. Turmeric, lemon, and dill load on the flavor to this delicious option, which also contains some chicken for protein.
Moroccan quinoa and carrot salad
This recipe is full of healthy elements from the quinoa, to the carrots, fennel, and almonds. Fennel is a great source of vitamin C and potassium. Quinoa is a powerhouse whole grain (read more about the benefits of whole grains, here), while the almonds contain antioxidants, fiber, can help regulate blood sugar, and even help ease pain.
We wish everyone a safe, healthy, and happy holiday.
