Swimming pools, popsicles, and the sweet smell of the barbeque are the tell-tale signs of a picturesque summer day. Firing up the backyard grill with family and friends has long been considered the perfect way to spend those lazy and hot days where turning on the oven just seems like too much. Not only is grilling a great way to spend time with the ones you love, it is also a great way to prepare foods to fuel your family in a healthy way. Grilling up family favorites doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your waistline for flavor-grilling provides a delicious way to stay lean and enjoy the foods you and your family love.

Fresh and Lean Ingredients

To maximize the flavor, start with the freshest ingredients possible as knowing what goes on your family’s plate is the first step to feeding a healthy lifestyle. I love working with the folks at Laura’s Lean Beef  because it is an excellent lean protein option and naturally lower in calories, fat and cholesterol. You can get a whopping 24 grams of protein at only 140 calories and 4.5 grams of fat in both their 96% Lean Ground Round and 96% Lean Ground Sirloin. I like it when I can incorporate Laura’s Lean Beef into meals that families are already grilling such as burgers, steaks or this delicious kabob recipe. The beef is also great for swapping for other family favorites like tacos, spaghetti, lasagna, etc. This beef provides great tasting fuel for families without using antibiotics or hormones.

Don’t Forget Dessert

The grill isn’t just for the perfect burger or steak, you can make sides by grilling whole lettuce heads and skewered fresh veggies alongside some shrimp and beef kabobs. Sear sliced pineapple, peaches, or grapefruit and top with frozen yogurt and  for a healthy sundae! The grill will make the flavor pop in these nutrient rich sides and provide the perfect addition to your barbeque.
