Did you know that it’s all about the healthy BBQ this summer? Do you know that BBQ doesn’t just stand for barbecue sauce? It also stands for “Better Be Quick.” BBQ is when you cook food on an open flame—no dishes, no mess!

Let’s combine the best of both words for a recipe that is totally barbecue and better be quick! These simple summer dishes will make you feel good, look good, and taste good!

This dish one of my favorite recipes from my cookbook: Bomb BB& Pulled Chicken—and you can do so much with it! Top it on a pretzel roll, bun, or salad. My favorite way to enjoy it is in a grilled BBQ chicken pizza.

You can use this simple mixture as a marinade for veggies, chicken, beef or seafood.

Grilling fruit is a fun way to re-introduce dessert. It actually makes the fruit more juicy and flavorful. Simply grill peaches and top with fresh whipped cream. Never buy frozen whip cream in a package that is full of ingredients and trans-fats. You can make your own healthy and delicious version by blending with a little pure vanilla extract until it reaches a whipped consistency.

Mineral water is much healthier than sparkling or soda water—high in minerals and extremely alkalizing making you feel hydrated and energized. Simply skewer some red, white, and blue fruits on a toothpick and top on a glass of mineral water. Add your own spirits if desired. Anything and everything goes with mineral water.
