Healthy Eating Tuesday Tips - Outdoor Party Ideas
At my house we grill everything on the patio in the summer and entertain friends and family often by out pool. Grilling is so healthy, I do it year round! Our go to for a crowd is fajitas. They can be very healthy. Grilled beef or chicken on a corn tortilla with onions, peppers, Greek yogurt, homemade pico de gallo and guacamole! Yummy!
2 of my favorite "out of the box" things to grill are avocados and okra. With the avocados, I just cut them in half, spray them lightly with a little EVOO and sprinkle with garlic pepper. Place cut side down on the grill until lightly brown. With the okra, I just wash it, let it dry on a towel for a few minutes. Then, put it in a ziplock bag, sprinkle with seasoning and shake. Grill it until soft and a little brown on one side.
Grilled fruit also makes a wonderful healthy desert! Pineapple, peaches or apples with some honey or cinnamon.
