My dad has a very restricted diet, due to advanced kidney disease. (No chocolate, no pastries, no dairy, no nuts, no cakes.) So for his birthday one year, we split a banana in half and grilled it, then topped it with a non-dairy whipped topping. It was a special sweet treat to celebrate, but was withing his dietary guidelines.
I have a charcoal grill that I LOVE! I use it several times a week!! I like to grill peppers, onions, corn, asparagus, and zuccini along with my chicken, chops, or steak. Sweetpotato and pineapple are also great on a grill.
We grilled three times this week. First night was flatiron steak with portobello caps, sliced peppers, squash and zucchini with herbs de provence, all splashed with olive oil and balsamic. Next, bison medallions with simple salt and pepper, more portobello and grilled corn. Finally (my favorite): salmon in balsamic maple marinade with more summer veggies and grilled corn. So satisfying and healthy! So glad I let the husband talk me into the gas grill...well worth the cost.
