Can you believe the 4th of July has already come and gone? !! We grill all year round but there is something about grilling on a beautiful summer night. Summer is a time for good food and good company sitting put on the patio watching all the kids run around having fun!
Every year for the 4th, we do a neighborhood get together before we all head out for fireworks. This year instead of the usual hamburger and hotdog, we had kebobs! They are easy and healthy way to load up on your veggies and fruit!
The nice thing about kebobs is there is no right way! Pick your favorite meats (steak, chicken, shrimp, etc. or no meat at all) and veggies and assemble how you like, grill and enjoy. I typically do chunks of chicken, steak, green, red, yellow peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, and pineapple. The other nice thing about kebobs, is you don’t need the added calories of sauces. I usually just lightly salt and pepper the meat and let all the natural flavors cook together.
For some 4th of July fun assemble blue berries, strawberries and banana into the American flag! It’s was festive and healthy!
Have a happy and healthy rest of your summer!
