BBQ a Veggie

With our lifestyle change, I have discovered that grilling doesn’t always mean a steak, burgers or hot dogs. You can grill healthy, and yes – this includes veggies!

With our lifestyle change, I have discovered that grilling doesn’t always mean a steak, burgers or hot dogs. You can grill healthy, and yes – this includes veggies!


Here are some things I have grilled that came out great:


  • Turkey Burgers: I have prepared them with chopped red pepper, 1 egg, low-fat parmesan cheese and chicken spice that you would use as a seasoning for grilling. Combine all ingredients and make your patty.
  • Asparagus: Prep is easy! Drizzle olive oil, chopped garlic and mix together. Grill on low heat, just until they are a little brown or when you see them have a little bend.
  • Fresh Corn: I know this may not be the top pick for a veggie, but on the grill it is fantastic. I have learned that you need to soak the unhusked corn in water for at least 20 minutes. Next, place them on the grill, low heat, turn them and let the husk get a little burned. Once you see that, the corn is good to go. You don’t need butter or salt, because you are not boiling away the taste.

Don’t be afraid of the grill. Don’t look at it as a time to pack on the pounds – look at it as just another way to load up on the good flavors and have a good time with friends and family.


Until next time, good luck!
