By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site.

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Greek works really well with Assyrtiko, Agiorgitiko, and Moschofilero. If you feel like going Greek with your Greek food, assyrtiko and moschofilero are both lovely white wines to pair with chicken, seafood, etc. Agiorgitiko is a full bodied red suitable for roasted meats and lamb. The Sigalas Assyrtiko Santorini with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 24 dollars per bottle.

Sigalas Assyrtiko Santorini

#83 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011When opening a bottle of Assyrtiko-Athiri, the eye is captivated by the bright straw blonde color and light green shades. The nose of wine is dominated by ripe citrus fruit, with lemon coming to the fore, while its excellent structure and acidity compliment its nose granting vibrancy and a lingering aftertaste.Assyrtiko-Athiri is excellent with traditional Greek recipes, fish dishes and white meats with light sauces.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a brand of gluten-free breadcrumbs.

  • Yogurt is a good source of probiotics, "good" bacteria that contribute to intestinal health and can improve digestion. Look at the label on your yogurt and make sure it says it contains "live and active cultures."

  • Depending on the recipe, you might be able to substitute almond meal or flaxseed for the breadcrumbs to reduce the carbohydrate content and up the nutrition. For example, almond meal works well for breading, while ground flaxseed can help with binding.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).
