It’s that time of year again…grilling season!

Well, we’re past Easter which means a couple things for you and your family.  Ladies, your favorite white jeans are officially back in season and men — it’s prime time for grilling!

It’s probably no surprise to you that grilling your meats is always a healthy option, but if you’re working to get in swimsuit-shape, macaroni and cheese is probably not the most calorie conscious side dish for your chicken breast.

Try cutting up some of your favorite organic veggies and allowing them to absorb a low sodium marinade before wrapping them in a foil packet and popping them on the top rack of your grill. Squash, zucchini and asparagus do a great job of absorbing the signature smoky taste you only get from the grill and go well with any meat!

If you’re looking for something a bit more hearty, try thick slices of potato and onion seasoned and grilled with butter in a foil packet.

Since the grill is already hot you might as well try your luck at a delicious grilled dessert! Slice up some peaches, add a little honey and a dash of cinnamon before– you guessed it – putting them in a foil packet and grilling them into a guiltless peach cobbler without the crust!
