Summer is just around the corner, and that means we’re heading into barbeque season! You may even be planning on breaking out the grill for Father’s Day this Sunday. We all love eating juicy fresh fruit during those hot summer days, but have you ever thought about adding grilled fruit to your BBQ menu? You could serve your grilled fruit as a good-for-you dessert, or even as a savory side dish. The grill adds a unique smokey flavor to the fruit, and the heat causes the sugars in the fruit to caramelize naturally.
It’s the 4th of July this weekend, and we’ve got an easy, creative party recipe for you: Tortilla Drumsticks! This is a healthy play on crispy fried chicken, but instead of the crispiness coming from deep fried batter, it comes from baked bean & rice chips. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and nut-free, and it’s fun for the whole family and super delicious!
This coming Monday we honor our fallen troops and gather with friends and family for Memorial Day. And what Memorial Day celebration would be complete without a delicious meal and shared dishes? Barbecues are so much fun with the sunshine, games and abundance of food. But let’s face it – the typical barbecue food can be pretty unhealthy, especially when you start adding in those chips and sides. If you have food allergies or intolerances it can be even harder.
