Summer is almost here, which means that it is time to start thinking about grilled veggies, meats, fresh veg, and delicious fruits that you can’t get any other time of year. We’ve partnered with Registered Dietitian Nutritionist & Chef, Sara Haas, to bring you 4 weeks of the best summer recipes from all over the internet. Sara has put together a fabulous menu that is healthy, easy to cook, and completely delicious! Each recipe includes a suggestion for an optional side, or two optional sides if you are feeling ambitious.
Though we are focusing on meals that are typically thought of as outdoor grilling recipes, you certainly don’t have to light up the grill every night to succeed! Many of these meals can be made right in your kitchen using your normal stovetop.
