In honor of National Barbecue Month, here are some healthy ideas sure to make you smile:
Think Beyond the Meat
Your barbeque grill is good for more than just burgers and steaks. We all know that vegetables are good for us (and our teeth). But, did you know how delicious they taste on the grill?
Zucchini, squash and onions are all filled with grill-worthy goodness. For an easy hors d’oeuvre, try slicing the zucchini and then wrapping it around a spoonful of goat cheese.
Finally, for a healthy side that even your keiki will love, try some grilled pineapple.
If you’re a meat eater, try something nutritious on your grill, like salmon or opah. In fact, Hawaii Farmers’ Markets are swimming with `ono options!
So, as you prepare for a grill-filled summer, make your ‘Ohana grin too! Don’t be shy – incorporate barbeque into every part of your meal. What are you waiting for? Get to grillin!
