Heading out for a cookout this weekend and looking for some recipes that will be tasty and healthy at the same time? This past Monday’s show with Jasmine (Healthy Jasmine) and Liza (aMusingFoodie) brought us multiple recipes for really tasty yet healthy options.
If you’re hosting the party and planning the menu, try to keep things simple. Go with fewer and fresher ingredients so that you know you’re providing the healthiest of options. It will also give you more time to enjoy your company.
Choosing meat to grill can be very easy. Liza’s tip for grilling chicken is that it will actually grill better if they are at room temperature. You can marinade your chicken in olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. Let it sit for about 15-20 minutes and then place on the grill.
Part of our conversation also turned to choices for milks and butters. Jasmine shared her wisdom: Butter vs. Margarine from Healthy Jasmine
