  7. Back to The Griller’s...

Back to The Griller’s Diet

Now it’s official, I brought out the summer shorts over the weekend and they confirmed what my tight jeans were telling me… I packed on a few pounds over the winter and it looks like I gave up a belt notch too!

Time to get back to the griller’s diet that helped me drop those pounds and inches in the first place. I’ve dedicated April to be  healthy grilling month with two simple rules to grill by:
  1. Never let the meat grill alone. I’m taking this one a bit further by dedicating a grill just to vegetables when we have friends and family over for dinner. Family style vegetables off the grill really helped my broaden my eating habits.

  2. Grill more fish, chicken and lean.
    You would think we’re practicing for Steak Competitions with the amount of red meat we grill. Time to sharpen the shears and get spatchcocking chicken! Instead of rib-eye steaks, I’ll be grilling salmon and tuna like a steak- hot and fast!close up sweet potato

These vegetables are the top 5 vegetables that are most often on my grills. They pack tremendous health benefits beyond helping with weight!  GrillGrate, Eat Well on the Grillers Diet.
