Megan is a dietetic intern from North Star, Ohio. She recently completed her Bachelors of Science in Dietetics and is finishing up her year-long dietetic internship with Bowling Green State University to help her earn that trusted RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) credential. As a busy intern and soon-to-be bride, Megan loves that this recipe delivers nutrient-dense foods in a totally hassle-free cooking method: grilling. Yep, when you use the grill, you spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying the beautiful summer weather…and that’s something that whether you’re an intern and bride-to-be, a busy professional, or a busy parent, we can all appreciate! Megan, take it away!

Many people know that vegetables are healthy…but why? Of course, vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients (special plant nutrients) that help keep your skin, eyes, heart, brain and body healthy. Even more impressive?  Recent studies indicate that incorporating more plant-based foods, like vegetables, can help you maintain a healthy weight and help you reduce your risk of diet-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and strokes. Plant-based food items are often budget-friendly, and they add a variety of nutrients to your diet, too (1).

Try adding more plants to your diet with this easy grill recipe! This summer grilling idea will give your backyard lunch or BBQ dinner some color, flavor and lots of healthy nutrients…and cleaning up is a breeze, too!
