With summer in full swing having delicious healthy grilling recipes on hand is a great way to stay on track and continue to work towards your weight loss goals

Trying to stick to a diet during barbeque season is sometimes a difficult task.  We understand and have some great healthy grilling recipes that are not only diet friendly and easy to make, but taste great as well!

Roasted Beef and Apple Kabobs

Ingredients

100 grams of lean good quality beef or chunked chicken

1 apple cut into large chunks

¼ onion petals

½ cup beef, chicken, or vegetable broth

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Bragg’s liquid aminos

Stevia to taste 

Directions

Marinate beef or chicken in broth, vinegar, and spices. Layer apple, onion petals, and beef or protein chunks on wooden or metal skewers (If using wooden skewers soak them for a few minutes so they don’t burn). Barbeque directly or place on aluminum foil sheet and cook until the desired level of doneness. Baste frequently with remaining marinade. Heat the remaining marinade in a small saucepan and use as a dipping sauce.

Blackened Chicken Salad

Ingredients

100g chicken tenders 
1 t paprika 
1/2 t onion powder 
1/2 t garlic powder 
1/4 t oregano 
1/4 t thyme 
1/4 t white pepper 
1/4 t black pepper 
1/4 t ground red pepper 
spinach or salad greens (as allowed)

Directions

Combine all spices and rub on chicken.

Grill until no longer pink.

Serve over spinach or salad greens

 

Fish is also something that gets really great flavor when cooked on the barbeque…just be sure to leave the skin on one side so it doesn’t stick to the grill or use a special fish “basket” to cook it.  You can also try making a foil packet and steam the fish with lemon, herbs, butter, etc. which is even easier. Happy Grilling!
