Mediterranean Bowl Recipe

5 Minute Mediterranean Bowl-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

Lately, I’ve been having a lot of fun in the kitchen coming up with different meals to make and new recipes to try! I’ve been sharing some of them on Instagram stories here, but thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite meals on the blog today. We are still following the 21 Day Fix eating plan (you can read more about it here), so we are trying to stick with healthy and quick dinners. One meal that I make almost weekly is this 5 minute Mediterranean bowl. Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients (serves 2):

1 cup of brown rice

1 cup of cauliflower rice

1 pint of cherry tomatoes cut in half

1 sliced cucumber

1/2 cup of banana peppers

1 can of rinsed garbanzo beans

2 tablespoons of hummus

2 tablespoons of tzatziki

2 tablespoons of olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. First, cook the brown rice and cauliflower rice. I always buy frozen brown rice and cauliflower rice that I can just quickly microwave to make things easier during the week.
  2. While the rice is cooking, cut the cherry tomatoes in half and slice the cucumber. Add them both into a mixing bowl with the banana peppers, then toss everything in olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Grab a bowl and place the cauliflower rice and brown rice on the bottom. Add some of the tomato, cucumber, and banana pepper mixture on top, along with a few tablespoons of rinsed garbanzo beans.
  4. Finally, top your Mediterranean bowl with a tablespoon of hummus and tzatziki.
  5. Enjoy!

Floral Kimono

For a few months I honestly wasn’t impressed with the clothes at Target, and it was a sad time. That is, until all the spring clothes came out and I wanted to add everything to my cart! My favorite item at Target right now is this floral and striped kimono that my parents gave me for my birthday. I love the print mixing, how lightweight it is, and the way that it looks with new favorite marble watch (use the code AKWHITE15 for $15 off ). What do you think about kimonos?

Tuesday’s Cravings: Work Pants

Here are the items that I’m currently craving this week! When I got back from maternity leave after having Charlotte, I was working in the office 3 days a week and working from home 2 days a week. I recently took a new role at work, and now I’m going to be in the office 4 days a week which means I need to add some more work clothes to my wardrobe. Over the weekend, I picked up a few new pairs of pixie pants from Old Navy while they were on sale. Old Navy pixie pants are the perfect length, they have a great amount of stretch, and they are an amazing price! Here are my favorite pairs:

Easter Gift Guide

It’s so hard to believe that Easter is only a couple of weeks away! I’ve been thinking about what we are going to get Charlotte for Easter this year, and here’s what will be in her Easter basket:

1. cuddle + kind doll

We first purchased a cuddle + kind doll for Charlotte for Christmas and she absolutely loved it! As soon as she unwrapped it she gave it a kiss which was just so sweet. I really love this company and the fact that these dolls are hand made by artisans and Peru, which helps give them sustainable income. Not only that, for every doll that is purchased 10 meals are given to children in need which is truly amazing. They have some really cute dolls that are perfect for Easter, including Lucy the lamb. She is just too adorable, and it makes the perfect Easter gift.

2. books

Charlotte is a big fan of books! She loves to take a book off of the shelf and bring it over to us to read to her which is so sweet. I love having different books for each holiday, and there are some really cute books for Easter including ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Easter Colors‘ which is Charlotte’s favorite. You can read about some of our other favorite books here.

3. clothes

Clothes are always a winner, especially with how quickly kids grow out of them! I picked up a dress and this shirt for Charlotte for Easter, but I think they will look cute to wear beyond Easter too.
