Summer Grilling Guide
First up on our guide is how to keep your summer barbeque on the lighter side without sacrificing flavor. The easiest way to achieve a healthy spread is by adding as much color as possible. By adding fruits and veggies like watermelon, zucchini, pineapple, eggplant, and bell peppers, you’re adding essential vitamins and nutrients to the table for your friends and family. Just because a food is nutritious doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Add some flavor to your veggies with unique spice blends and marinades or make a zesty fruit salad with berries and citrus fruits galore. We know that hot dogs and hamburgers are royalty when it comes to the hierarchy of grillable meats, but we believe lighter choices packed with protein like salmon, shrimp, and turkey burgers are next in line for the throne this summer. These lean proteins are easy to cook, flavorful, and impressive when plated.
Our last tip is simple: work with what you’ve got. Yes, your guests are coming for good eats and treats, but chances are the company is the most important takeaway for them. Don’t overthink it by spending time on little details like the decor. Let the spread and activities speak for themselves. Set up a couple of fun games like cornhole or volleyball to get your guests active and extra hungry for the great meal they are about to experience. By spending more time focusing on the quality of food and fun you’re providing instead of what color napkins to buy, we guarantee your guests will walk away with full bellies and full hearts. Now, get to grilling!
