My 3 Favorite Grilling Go-Tos

I'm happy to announce that GRILLING SEASON is here! Time to take the cover off the grill and fire it up. Memorial Day Weekend is upon us and its time to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and seasonal food finds. I'd like to share with you....My 3 favorite grilling go-to’s:

grilled peaches3. Fruit is a satisfying summer dessert, so why not throw it on the grill?  My favorites are of the “P” variety: plums, peaches and pineapples. Cut the plums and peaches in half and put face down on the grill until cooked. Pineapples can be diced and skewered, or sliced into wedges or rounds.  Or, you can combine them all together and make a fruit salad.  Grilled fruit is good on its own, but for an extra something special, add a dollop of Maple Honey Mascarpone Cheese…head over to our Pinterest page at Nourish Family Nutrition and find the recipe on our “Grillicious” board.

I hope you have a fun and fabulous holiday weekend with friends and family.  Nourish yourselves with something healthy and grilled…yum!

Time to take the cover off the grill and fire it up. Memorial Day Weekend is upon us and its time to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and seasonal food finds. I’d like to share with you….My 3 favorite grilling go-to’s:

1. Kabobs

Kabobs are a simple and delicious way to protein-pack your cookout. Choose proteins such as chicken, steak, or shrimp (or all 3).  Cut the chicken and steak into bite size pieces, de-vein the shrimp, and skewer them up.  Brush with olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and pepper for flavor.

2. Veggies Cooked in a Grill Basker

These are a summer staple for me.  A grill basket is great because you won’t lose any veggies through the grill grate. If you don’t have a basket, you can wrap the veggies in foil or skewer them.  The possibilities are endless with veggies:  broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, portobello mushrooms, bell peppers and onions all cook fantastic on the grill. Once they’re cooked and lightly charred, throw them in a big bowl and drizzle with olive oil and sea salt.
