Greek Restaurant on Low Carb / Atkins
Greek foods can be perfect for low carb dieting. Much of Greek food is fresh, and they do enjoy their meat and veggies! Here are some suggestions for eating at a Greek restaurant if you're looking for healthy options.
The first suggestion is always kabobs. Greek culture is known for its lamb kabobs - also known as souvaki - but you can get kabobs in many other flavors. Often a kabob will have green pepper on the skewer as well. The meat is often flavored with oregano, garlic, olive oil. These are quite healthy for you! Definitely go for some kabobs from your Greek menu.
Olives and cheese are both staples of a Greek diet. Both are very good for you and are deliciously low carb! Start with an appetizer of olives and cheese, and get your meal going in style. Enjoy some red wine to help with your HDL levels and get those antioxidants into your system.
Greek Salads are known the world over. It's well worth it to incorporate at least one salad a day into your diet! Greek salads are the perfect way to do that. Speaking of salads, also look into Melitzanosalata which is a type of eggplant salad.
For dessert, go for a cheese plate. The Greeks make some awesome cheeses and in many cultures this is the perfect, healthy ending to any meal. Pour a nice glass of wine, sample the cheeses and enjoy the flavors!
