Recipes Featuring Product
FETA CHICKEN MEATBALLS
These meatballs are really simple - ground chicken, feta cheese, GREEK blend, and some lemon zest. Ball 'em up and pop them in the oven for 15 minutes.
My secret to a juicy meatball?
I grind my own chicken thighs! Sounds complicated, but really a food processor does all the work. (See below for more detail on this!)
Make extra to keep this quick protein source on hand for weeknight meals or snacks anytime.
This recipe also contains one of our Balanced Bites Spice Blends - GREEK Spice Blend - which you can shop here!
MEDITERRANEAN BAKED CHICKEN WITH CAULIFLOWER

FETA-BRINED CHICKEN THIGHS
OKAY THIS FETA BRINED CHICKEN IS LIFE CHANGING. I don’t say that lightly or often. I think it’s the best chicken I’ve ever had.
Pro Tip: Save the leftover brine from your feta containers as you use it, and freeze till you're ready to go!

PERFECTLY GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST
This grilled chicken breast recipe is hands down my favorite way to prepare this cut of chicken and prevent it from drying out. Cooking whole chicken breast tends to be one of the easiest things to mess up in the kitchen, yet many people attempt it first! The biggest trick to this recipe is to butterfly the chicken breast ahead of seasoning or marinating to grill it. Butterflying the chicken ensures a quick cooking time that can be done with fairly high heat, resulting in juicy chicken that's perfect for any entree or for slicing and serving over salads and more.
PALEO AVOCADO TOAST
Avocado toast has become one of the “it” breakfasts these days. Avoiding bread has meant missing out, until now! In my Paleo Avocado Toast recipe, thin potato slices replace the toast, and the flavor is reminiscent of loaded potato skins once it’s all stacked up—and it’s to die for. Prep some potatoes ahead to reheat in a toaster oven for quick and easy weekday breakfasts. You could use pretty much any of our spice blends on your avocado toasts, we especially love our Super Garlic Pizza and Greek Spice Blends.
EASY OVEN FRIES
If you follow me on social media, you know that oven fries are a staple food in my diet. I enjoy them for breakfast, especially after a heavy leg day at the gym, but they also are delicious as a side with lunch or dinner.
CHICKEN SOUVLAKI KEBABS
Greek flavors are some of my absolute favorites! These Chicken Souvlaki Kebabs feature lemon, oregano, and a rich-tasting extra- virgin olive oil that magically blend together, and take me back to our trip to Greece a few years back.
I’ve added some turmeric to what would otherwise be a more traditional souvlaki marinade to up the nutritional value and the visual impact of these skewers. They’re perfect for a cookout or even a weeknight meal. Shop our Balanced Bites Greek Spice Blend to make this recipe even easier!
THE BEST ROAST CHICKEN
I think we could all benefit from a little comfort right now, and I can't think of anything more comforting than a homemade roast chicken. In this recipe for the best roast chicken, I like to use SAVORY, GREEK, or TEX MEX spice blends, but really any of my Balanced Bites Spices will work here.
SPAGHETTI SQUASH BOLOGNESE BAKE
What could be better than a hearty Bolognese? A Spaghetti Squash Bolognese Bake! This casserole features our Super Garlic Pizza and Greek Spice Blends, and is super satisfying and perfect for feeding a family or a crowd—or one person with lots of leftovers. This dish freezes and reheats beautifully, so make a big batch to enjoy comfort food anytime.
BACON, BRUSSELS, ASPARAGUS, & GOAT CHEESE FRITTATA
Frittatas – like this Bacon, Brussels, Asparagus & Goat Cheese Frittata – are one of the easiest ways to work veggies and extra protein into your morning.
And, I’m going to go out on a limb here and proclaim myself as not only a salad master, but *also* a frittata master.
One day, I'll blog my formula for how to make the best frittata, but here’s the gist of it:
+ Some sort of savory meat like bacon, sausage, chorizo, pancetta, shredded chicken, etc. I prefer something pork based but do you boo.
+ Leftover chunky vegetables that you chop up small, like broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, butternut squash, Brussels sprouts, etc.
+ Fresh vegetables or leafy greens like finely chopped kale or spinach with seasoning added, I usually use Balanced Bites TRIFECTA blend.
+ Eggs whisked with some sort of milk (I use coconut) and seasonings – I often use Balanced Bites SUPER GARLIC, TRIFECTA, GREEK, RANCH, SAVORY, or ITALIAN blend and some extra black pepper. (Shop all Balanced Bites Spices here!)
+ Cheese. Of course it’s optional if you can’t do dairy, but I highly recommend trying different types of animal dairy to see if goat or sheep works for you versus cow. If you can’t do dairy you *must* use a really flavorful cured meat like bacon in the first step of umami! Oh, garlicky cooked mushrooms will work or caramelized onions for that umami as well. Otherwise, a bland frittata is in your future and you KNOW how I feel… #noblandfood.
Since I know a bunch of you will want a precise recipe as well, here's one of my favorites – it has all of the components of the formula above: salty bacon, crispy brussels, fresh asparagus, & creamy goat cheese – so good!
ROASTED POTATOES WITH FETA & LEMON
MAKE THESE ROASTED POTATOES WITH FETA AND LEMON! Thank me later.
I highly recommend you first roast up a bunch of chicken thighs so you can use the fat (aka schmaltz – I wrote up a post on it here) that comes off of them to make these – that’s what we did and it makes them mind-blowingly good!
I make these roasted potatoes with feta and lemon and GREEK Spice Blend, but you can change it up and try them with almost any other blend you like.
Some of my other top picks would be:
These would also be great seasoned simply with salt!
Learn more about schmaltz in this post.
Enjoy these marinated onions on burgers, in tuna salad, in tacos, or as a salad topper. Keep a batch of these on hand at all times; you’ll be glad you have them!

MINI MEDITERRANEAN KEBABS (KOFTA)
In this recipe for Mini Mediterranean Kebabs, the bold flavors of Mediterranean food are paired with a cooling tzatziki sauce. Featuring Balanced Bites GREEK Spice Blend, the savory flavors contrast nicely with the bright, creamy sauce—it’s an amazing combination.
This easy appetizer recipe is perfect to bring to a party or can be made without the cocktail sticks for an easy weeknight dinner.
SIMPLE GREEK-SPICED LAMB ROAST WITH CAULIFLOWER RICE
This simple recipe is perfect for any dinner where you want something that seems a bit more fancy, but without the added work. The artichokes and raisins in the cauliflower rice pair perfectly with the lamb to make a complete meal!

Greek on Point
This is what you want to use when making your own Greek salad dressing! We ordered Greek last night & I tossed the junky dressing that came with it. Made my dressing w this blend and *chef’s kiss*! Perfect! Strong and well crafted. Nothing about this is done half way. Love it!
A Staple in my Kitchen!
I LOVE this Greek spice blend, and I’ve tried a lot of greek blends over the years. This one is *chef’s kiss*! I love it on grilled chicken, potatoes, blended into yogurt as a dip or topping, sprinkled on some tomatoes & cucumbers for an easy side. I use it at least 2-3x a week.
I wasn't expecting to love this spice blend as much as I do, but it has quickly become one of my favorites! I saw a post on instagram about using this as an easy marinade and I was sold. Truly made the chicken so flavorful and moist. The added touch of lemon is perfect as well. Great on potatoes and vegetables. I will definitely buy this one again.
One of my faves
One of my favorites. So good with chicken.
My go to spice for veggies lately - the best on potatoes!
