The Drugless Doctors Healthy Summer Recipes!
Simple Grilled Chicken
Ingredients: Organic chicken thighs or breasts Marinade: Garlic, Herbs, Olive oil, Celtic sea salt.
Recipe: Marinade your chicken before grilling it, herbs and garlic add a great flavor. Grill it up evenly on both sides until thoroughly cooked. When finished use this in a fresh salad or as a primary protein alongside your other sides. This is an excellent cookout option for kids, let them help you season!
Ingredients: Organic beef, chicken, and veggies of your choice. Leaner meat may dry out when doing this so choose one with more fat content.
Recipe: Dice up your meat and veggies of your choice. Soak your skewer sticks in water for at least 30 minutes before assembling to prevent from burning on the grill. Marinade your meat as well as your vegetables in seasonings, olive oil, and lemon (whatever you may like).
Grill the vegetables and meats until cooked through and eat on the skewer or take them off and toss them together in a salad or on a plate. Great way to incorporate the whole family with their favorite meats and vegetables! Job #1 is having FUN!
