If summer had one defining scent, it’d definitely be the smell of barbecue. —Katie Lee
Let’s be real. I’m no Giata or Julia Child by any means, but let me tell you, I know how to do is to eat my colors.
Too bad it isn’t M&M’s or Skittles, haha! As obesity is on the rise and illnesses like cancer become more prevalent, the world has begun shifting to living healthier lifestyles these last few years.
It’s been said time and again that cooking at home versus eating out helps people save money and eat healthier. However, cooking at home is never an easy task for those of us who have packed schedules, which is why I’m pretty sure services such as Plated exist.
The idea of eating healthy while we’re on the go is laughable with so many McDonalds, Taco Bells (ew) and other fast food places on every corner of the world, so I know what you’re thinking, “Huong, I don’t have time to cook and fast food is just easy.”
Today, I’m here to share with you at least ONE recipe you can steal from me so it’s ONE less excuse for you to not be giving your body what it needs to function right. One thing, I love to do with my friends is skewers (and don’t groan at the idea of firing up the grill until you’ve read everything) or kabobs, but I like to call them “Skittle Skewers” because I’m eating my rainbow of awesome goodness, haha!
If you’d love to try it yourself, check it out (ignore the nutrition facts below the recipe; I have no idea how to get rid of that line):
One of the best and healthiest meals to have during summer are kebabs! They're easy to make and you can always cater to someone's food preferences!
- 1 Green bell pepper
- 1 Red bell pepper
- 1 Yellow bell pepper
- 1 package Mushrooms
- 1 Purple onion
- 1 White onion
- 1 ear Corn
- 1 Zucchini
- 1 package Sweet cherry tomatoes
- 1 Ribeye steak
- 1 lb Shrimp
- 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt
- 1 tsp Black pepper
- 1 tbsp Onion flakes
- 1 tsp Garlic fresh or powdered
- 1/4 cup Olive oil
Cut your veggies and meat into 1 1/2 inch pieces.
Mix olive oil and spices in a mixing bowl.
Toss veggies and meat in olive oil and your preferred spices.
Fill the grill baskets.
To save more time, cut up your meat and veggies the night before and toss them in the olive oil/spices marinade before grilling.
Note: Make sure to keep the handles of the skewer baskets off the heat!
What do you put on your kababs?
I’d love to get some more ideas since my friends and I love making and eating this during the spring and summer.
Oh and if you’d like to see more healthy recipes, leave a comment below and let me know what your taste buds are like and I’m more than happy to “experiment” and have my friends be the guinea pigs, haha!
