Healthy BBQ and Grilling Recipes
Find healthy, delicious BBQ and grilling recipes including burgers, seafood, chicken and vegetables. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap
This chicken Caesar salad wrap recipe is elevated by the irresistible smoky flavor of grilled chicken and grilled romaine. Whisk together this easy Caesar salad dressing, toss with the grilled chicken and romaine and wrap it all together for a delicious lunch or dinner……

Grilled Shrimp Tostadas
Grilling gives these shrimp tostadas a boost of smoky flavor. Skewering the shrimp prevents them from falling through the grates while getting even char on each side. If you have a grill basket, you can throw them in that instead; just make sure to get them into a single layer so they don’t steam……

Grilled Red Snapper
This simple grilled snapper has clean flavors and a nice char flavor from the grill. It’s well seasoned but not overly spicy. Serve along with grilled veggies or a fresh green salad to make it a meal……

Make a list and check it twice…..

Create a grocery list, this will save you time and money, so you don’t get distracted by items in the store you don’t need. A grocery list should be based on the ingredients of the meals that you wish to make. Meaning, we need to think about what meals we want to have for the week. Stick to your list!

One of America’s Favorites – Surf and Turf MONDAY

Steak and three shrimp, served with spicy mayonnaise, side salad and fries

Surf and turf or surf ‘n’ turf is a main course combining seafood and red meat. A typical seafood component would be lobster (either lobster tail or a whole lobster, prawns, shrimp, squid or scallops, any of which could be steamed, grilled or breaded and fried. The meat is typically beef steak, although others may be used. One standard combination is lobster tail and filet mignon.

Surf and turf is typically served in steakhouses in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia.

Surf and turf is sometimes referred to as Reef and beef or Reef ‘n’ Beef in Australia.
In late 19th-century America, combining large portions of lobster and steak was popular at “show restaurants known as lobster palaces”, favored by nouveau riche “arrivistes”. This became unfashionable by the 1920s, and only regained popularity in the early 1960s.

Surf ‘n’ turf was featured in 1962 at the Eye of the Needle, a revolving restaurant atop the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

Surf and turf is often considered to symbolize the middle-class “Continental cuisine” of the 1960s and 1970s, with (frozen) lobster and steak as replacement for the middle class.

A variation is the surf and turf burger, which is prepared with ground beef and various types of seafood, such as lobster, shrimp or crab.

Homemade…..

Cooking at home saves money. Buying ingredients is usually cheaper than restaurant meals or takeout. It may save time. It can actually be quicker to make a meal at home than order takeout – especially if you meal prep, cook in bulk, or freeze your extras for later. It also ensures healthier ingredients. Take out and preprepared foods are typically higher in salt, fat, and sugar. When we make our own meals at home, we know exactly what we’re eating. Homemade is better!

Healthy Cornbread Recipes
Find healthy, delicious cornbread recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Real Cornbread
This traditional cornbread is made without flour, isn’t sweet and has a crumbly texture. You can change the adaptable recipe to suit your cornbread preference. For a variation, substitute 1/2 teaspoon baking soda for the baking powder and use buttermilk instead of milk. If you’re looking for a more muffin like texture, substitute flour for half the cornmeal……

Whole-Grain Cornbread
Made with whole-grain cornmeal and white whole-wheat flour, this healthy cornbread recipe is quick enough for a weeknight and perfect to serve with chili or instead of dinner rolls. We like to make a few extra batches of the dry mix and store it in the freezer. To make a batch of cornbread, just measure out 2 cups of dry mix and combine with the liquid ingredients. If you don’t want to pull out your food processor, you can skip pureeing the corn in Step 2 and instead whisk an 8-ounce can of creamed corn with the egg, milk, oil and sugar before combining with the dry ingredients……

Creole Skillet Cornbread
Baking cornbread in a cast-iron skillet results in the ideal crispy crust enclosing a tender crumb. In this recipe, tender corn kernels provide additional texture. As with many recipes, how much sugar you like in your cornbread may depend on how your grandmother made it, so add more or less sugar to taste……

Are Jalapeños good for your health, yes…..

Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene — an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of their health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. Capsaicin, a compound that likely accounts for many of the health benefits of Jalapeños, including weight loss, pain relief, improved heart health and lower ulcer risk.
