Even though we’ve been out of school for weeks, yesterday officially marked the first day of summer. This means family BBQs, sleeping past breakfast (and sometimes past lunch!) and other things that may not be the best for your health. Check out these summer recipes that are tasty, convenient and healthy.
- Skewer the Fat: Everyone lights up their grill in the summer. How do you avoid those fatty cheeseburgers or high-calorie hot dogs? Learn how to make kebabs! Just pick your protein, marinade and vegetables and you’ve got a healthy dinner!
- Guilt-Free Nachos: You can find nachos at baseball games, theme parks and even on Franklin Street – but they’re typically loaded with fat. Who says you can’t eat Mexican while trying to eat healthy? Try these guilt-free nachos for all the taste of a Mexican restaurant minus the grease.
- Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Quick Bread: Whether you are in summer school, working or are interning this summer, you’re probably always on-the-run. Make these muffins one day and have breakfast to-go all week! As an added bonus – you get heart-healthy walnuts AND chocolate in every bite.
- Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie: Smoothies are convenient and can be eaten as a snack, breakfast or a post-workout meal! Blend up this recipe with just a few ingredients that you’re sure to have in your kitchen.
