If it’s your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier in 2022, or that’s a goal that you try to keep in general, we’ve got good news for you. Grilling is a great way to eat healthy and delicious foods. Grilling your food adds an extra layer of smoky flavor without any of the extra calories. Here are some of our favorite healthy grilling ideas:

  • Grilled vegetables are an excellent way to mix up your menu. Most any vegetable can be grilled, and it adds a delicious layer of flavor. From squash to corn to peppers and tomatoes, the options are almost endless. Brush some olive oil on your favorite veggies, sprinkle some salt and pepper, and then place them directly on the grill for an excellent charred flavor.
  • Salmon is an ultra-healthy protein option, and it tastes great on the grill! Rub each side of your salmon filet with olive oil, and sprinkle with your choice of spices. Grill on each side for about 5 minutes. Finish with some lemon juice for an extra fresh kick.
  • For a healthier burger alternative, try turkey burgers instead of beef. You can fill the burgers with chopped onions and peppers for extra crunch and flavor.
  • Kabobs are a fun way to pack your plate with healthy options. Have your family members assemble their own kabobs before placing them on the grill for extra fun. 
  • Grilled fish tacos topped with fresh mango and pineapple is another favorite healthy option of ours.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! For extra flavor and fun, throw your favorite menu options on the grill.
