Summer is in full swing and it’s time to fire up the grill! Say no to the creamy potato salads and shake up your grilling routine with these 7 healthy grilling tips and tricks.
Suns out Buns out
Swap your fatty burgers with a leaner meat, like salmon or turkey! To make them even healthier, trade in your bun for a grilled pineapple topper or wrap it in lettuce.
Skewer up some of your favorites at your next neighborhood BBQ! Shrimp, chicken, bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, onions, grape tomatoes and mushrooms are some of the best healthy foods to include.
The a-maize-ing Kernel of Truth
Nothing quite says summer like corn on the cob. And it is packed with nutrients! Dress it up by shaving it into a salad!
Ex-spear-ience the Health Benefits of Asparagus
Did you know? Asparagus contains amino acids and minerals that can help protect liver cells against toxins. Throw a bunch on the grill!
Cabbage is Slaw-some
Serve up a delicious no-mayo coleslaw for a healthier, better tasting alternative! You won’t even miss it.
Make like a Chip and Dip
Lighten up your chip dip or taco toppings by using plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream! Same great taste, way less fat.
Make like a Banana and Split
Step away from the pie and satisfy your sweet tooth with grilled fruit! Toss some peaches, pineapples, bananas and more on the flames and relish in the caramelized goodness.
