Grilling out!

Monday, February 11, 2013

One of the things I really missed the past 5 years was being able to grill out. Living in an apartment complex negated the ability to pull out the grill and fix an amazing "picnic" meal whenever I wanted. Even though I lived most of my life in the midwest, where winters are winters, we still grilled out several times a week. Quick and easy meals without much mess.
Moving into my digs, I was very excited, I could grill out whenever I wanted once again. The real challenge was going to be making the correct choices. After all I got overweight by enjoying the easy meals way too much. As most will agree, the meat cooked on a grill are incomparably scrumptious compared to fried foods.
I know have the undaunted job of putting to practice all the healthy ideas I have gained while reading the successes, trials, roadblocks, all of you have given me through your blogs and comments to me. I feel very positive about this, just don't need any speedbumps from this point on.
Thanks for all the past and future advice.

    Grilling out is awesome. On a Sunday I usually grill a ton of stuff and have them ready for the week to eat whenever I am hungry it makes life a lot easier!

    We live in Ohio and we cook out on the charcoal grill all year long also .... I LOVE grilled veggies and bought one of those pans with holes in it and it is so easy now .... nothing slips through the grates .... and of course we make vegetable shis-k-bobs all the time ... even started putting fruits out there like pineapple ... so yummy .... of course we have lots of chicken breasts !! we stay on our nutrition better it seems when we cook outside ....
