There are so many ways to mix it up with fruits and veggies. Add berries to your morning cereal, oatmeal, or smoothie, satisfy that sweet tooth with melons or cherries, and don’t forget to add them to salads. Too keep cool, cook outdoors with a grill. There are so many ways that we can work in more veggies by preparing them on the grill with our protein. Zucchini, bell peppers, onions, asparagus, and mushrooms all are great together or separate on the grill. Make a foil packet with your favorites, spray a bit of olive oil on them and toss with your favorite herbs, and you have a flavorful side dish low in calories, but high in vitamins. When you get tired of these, get creative; eggplant, tomatoes, and corn all are great on the grill as well. While you’re out there, grill enough for the week. Have your proteins, like chicken ready to heat up and add to a salad, a wrap, or just by itself. After a long day of work, you will be thankful that your kitchen is clean and cool, but your flavors are sizzling.
