Spring is a great time to fire the grill back up after it’s lonely imprisonment in the garage.

Sauté some carrots in light butter, add a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar, and serve with buttered peas.


5. Grill out

Grilled Turkey hot dogs are fun at the grill out in the park

(or at home!)...

Serve with chunks of watermelon and cantaloupe.3

Tortilla chips and salsa are better for you than potato chips and dip, too, so give those a try!

6. Fruit Toppings

Add fruit as toppers to low fat ice cream, low fat cheesecake, multi-grain pancakes, and angel food cake.

Slice up bananas, strawberries, or blueberries for your cereal.

These are easy ways to add fruit to your diet without sacrificing flavor.

7. Broccoli Soup

Lightly boil your package of frozen broccoli.

Fry a pound of turkey sausage (trust me, they will never know it’s turkey, and it’s much better for you!).

Mix broccoli and sausage, and add some Velveeta cheese – I use the entire 2 lb.


After the cheese has melted (keep stirring, or it will stick) Add a cup of milk ad simmer for 10 minutes.

Serve with whole-wheat crackers.
