Summertime Grilling (with recipe!)


It’s a hot summer day, maybe a weekend or holiday, and you’re looking for an easy outdoor meal. One you can share with your family or friends but which won’t leave you feeling all heavy and bloated after. Most importantly it should be easy, nutritious and delicious! Oh yeah–and you don’t want to be in the kitchen any longer than necessary!
What to do??

The KCitK gals have a solution for you!:

Grab some cancer-kicking veggie faves like bell pepper, onions, zucchini, and mushrooms and get chopping. Place veggie chunks on wooden skewers.

We encourage adding in more veggie-based protein options, and reducing the amount of animal protein (most of us get WAY too much of it and that can wreak havoc on your body). So to complete this meal, try adding marinated tempeh pieces (fermented soybeans) or throw a bean burger on the grill. You can also try seitan dogs to get away from the traditional hotdog.

Whisk together a marinade–like this one–and drizzle all over:

1/2 cup tamari
2 crushed garlic cloves
2 tablespoons fresh ginger
2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons honey

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Then place on foil on the grill and viola! Summertime –Healthy-style!

Serve with a side of chilled melon and enjoy!

And for those of you living in the United States we wish you a happy Independence Day!
