If you’re getting ready to celebrate July 4th, it probably means you’re breaking out the grill. Sometimes it feels like all people ever use their grills for are heavy BBQ ribs dripping in sugary sauce, hamburgers and hotdogs, or steaks.
Not that we don’t enjoy those foods now and again, but if you’re trying to stick to a healthy diet and relax for the holiday, avoiding high-calorie foods (or eating them and feeling the guilt) can take some of the fun out of your festivities.
With these healthier, and tasty, recipes, you can grill all day long and know that you’re not loading your body with junk foods or fat. You’ll feel great and cook up some great recipes too.
