Grillin Kabobs!

Grillin Kabobs!

Last week was a short week for me so I skipped a food idea on Friday.

With all of the gorgeous weather out there, I can’t help but think about grilling and spending time outside soaking up some vitamin D.

A couple weeks ago I mentioned the packets where you grill your protein and veggies together in foil.

Another fun way to put a healthy meal together is the kabob! They take a little more time to put together, but they are great on the grill.

First choose a lean protein (or two for some added variety) and cube it to fit the skewer of your choosing.

Using a marinade on the meat can help add flavor to your kabob and take them up a notch.

Don’t forget the veggies! You’ll want to use ones that match with the protein/marinade you’ve selected and ones that work well when you’re grilling.

You can use the traditional stainless steel or bamboo skewers, but we bought a set similar to this one and have been using them ever since.

They hold more food and are easier to both clean and store.

Are you hungry yet?

Here are a couple of links that I found to be helpful and offer a variety of options to help you choose something for your family’s food preferences.

Experiment with different proteins and different veggies until you find the combo you love.

Happy grilling!
