Grilled foods for those Summer cookouts!

With Summer around the corner and the grills come out, this is a great time for friends and family to get together. Eating healthy and making good choices can still be done! Use skinless chicken, have shrimp or chicken kabobs instead of pork. Turkey, chicken and beef burgers without the bun. Grilled summer squash using Molly McButter, a pinch of salt and pepper and grill on medium high for about 5 minutes until lightly charred and tender. A nice salad to bring: Cucumber Salad : Slice 3 small or 2 regular cucumbers. May peel or leave skin on and place in mixing bowl, Salt ½ teaspoon, pepper to taste, slice thinly a small onion, place in bowl, ¼ cup vinegar. 2 tbsp. light/fat free Italian dressing, one packet of sugar substitute, Mix and let set over night. Drink your water and be sure to move around. Any activity you can do is better than nothing. Happy grilling.
