Hey everyone! Well, summer is here and you know what that means: patio dinners, picnics in the park and, of course, some tasty adult beverages. Now, before you start thinking that you can’t do ANY of this because you don’t want to blow your healthy eating plan, think again. I’m here to share my favorite healthy (and freaking amazing) summer dishes with you! So, sit back, enjoy, and start soaking in all of this summery goodness!
Grilled Steak & Chicken Kabobs – Oh my, I don’t quite have the words for these tasty treats, but let’s just say you can eat a few of them and not feel one ounce of guilt! This recipe is pretty easy, simply marinate/season your meat in your favorite flavor, slap it on a skewer with some yummy vegetables, cook until it’s done, and then voila! It’s done! But, for those of you who are like me and require a recipe to follow, check out this link:
Scallop Tacos – I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore seafood and everything about it. So, what better way to enjoy it than by putting it in tacos, right?! Check out this recipe for scallop tacos; you won’t be disappointed!
Whole Grain Pasta Primavera – Just because I’ve lost 100 pounds doesn’t mean that I’ve lost my pasta cravings. Seriously, I eat pasta at every chance I get, and pride myself on my ability to make it healthy! At least two nights a week you can find me in the kitchen whipping up a healthy pasta creation that weighs in around 210 calories, but tastes every bit of 1700 calories. This whole grain pasta primavera recipe does exactly that! Pair this delicious dish with a side of fruit salad and a guilt-free cocktail, and you’ve got yourself the perfect little summer dinner!
Mini Sweet-Zza’s – Just because you’re eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to send your sweet tooth packing; embrace your sweet tooth! You’d be amazed at how easy it is to make your favorite calorie packed dessert into a healthy treat. These mini sweet-zza’s are no different; they take the idea of pizza and use it as inspiration for this healthy little snack. Serve these adorable little desserts at your next barbeque, and you’re sure to become everyone’s favorite host.
Zucchini Parmesan Crisps – Hate eating your vegetables? Not anymore! These zucchini parmesan crisps make eating your vegetables so freaking good, you’ll swear you’re eating French fries. I never used to like zucchini until I discovered a way to make it taste like it’s been deep fried in oil and cheese. But, who can blame me?!
These are just a few of my favorite healthy summer recipes; if you want to find out more of my must have dishes, follow me on Pintrest, or check out my Nutrish & Delish board, here!
