Grillin Kabobs

With the warmer weather finally here, I can’t help but think about grilling and spending time outside soaking up some vitamin D.

Last week 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!

PS: With Mother’s Day just around the corner…grill up some kabobs for your mom so she can enjoy the day!!!
