  • 1 cup Arugula or mixed greens (20-50 g)
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro zucchini rice (link to recipe))(100 g)
  • 1 fillet  Air-fried blackened mahi mahi (link to recipe)(113 g)
  • 1/4 cup Corn and peach salad (may sub mango or pineapple for the peaches) (link to recipe) (80 g)
  • 1/4 cup Roasted sweet potato cubes (link to recipe) (50 g)
  • 1/4 cup Cherry tomatoes, halved (30 g)
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro pepita sauce (link to recipe) (30 g)
  • 1 tsp Pepitas (or other nut or seed of choice) (5 g)
  • Freshly squeezed lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • *Optional crumbled cheese of choice (I’m using dairy free Feta)


  • Build your bowl starting with a handful of greens.
  • Add a scoop of your cilantro zucchini rice and top with air fried mahi mahi, corn and peach salad, roasted sweet potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and a drizzle of cilantro pepita dressing.
  • Finish with a pinch of pepitas, and optional crumbled cheese. I love dairy free feta but it’s also delicious with cotija, goat, parmesan, or of course real feta cheese!
  • Squeeze a little fresh lemon on top, season with salt and pepper, and enjoy!


Early in the week, make your cilantro zucchini rice, blackened Mahi Mahi, corn and peach salad, roasted sweet potatoes, and cilantro pepita dressing. Now you’re ready for easy, delicious lunches! Just pop your leftover blackened fish and sweet potatoes in the air fryer for 2-3 minutes to reheat while you pull everything else out and chop a few tomatoes. Easy!
