Zucchini recipes are so hot right now on the internet, so why not try something a little out of the box and combine them with fresh tuna, bell peppers and a citrus marinade such as in these Tuna Zucchini Kabobs. The Moroccan flavors of the marinade pair well with the grilled fish and vegetables. Easy to prepare and a party showstopper, these are low in calories, fat and carbohydrates.

Easy Vegetable Kabobs

Easy Vegetable Kabobs

Are you still trying to stay on track eating healthy and working out since the new year began? We are! I am trying to make sure my 3 kids eat more fruits and vegetables, and these Vegetable Kabobs have been a winner as a side dish at our dinner table. I used Ranch seasoning mix with olive oil for the marinade, and also make a yogurt ranch dip to go with them. You can use store-bought Ranch if you have it, but if you have time the recipe for homemade ranch is easy. It’s listed below. Just combine all the ingredients and store covered in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

1 (6 oz.) container nonfat plain Greek yogurt

5 tbsp. nonfat buttermilk

2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

1 tbsp. chopped fresh chives

1/4 tsp. grated lemon zest

2 tsp. Ranch seasoning mix

 

Plum Recipes: Pork, Plum and Rosemary Kabobs

This week’s Summerfest from the Food Network features one of my favorite stone fruits: plum recipes. My recipe for Pork, Plum and Rosemary Kabobs is a main dish favorite at our house during the summertime. The sweet and herb flavors blend wonderfully with the pork and plums. When I grill these, the kids are so excited. I love to cut additional plums for grilling because usually the kids are arguing about who took more. Enjoy this easy summer recipe, and take a look at the other fabulous plum recipes below:

Easter or Passover Main Dish Idea: Mahi Mahi and Vegetable Kabobs

I grill all year long, but my family especially loves it when the weather turns nice. We tend to eat outside on the deck, and it’s great for the kids to be riding bikes and playing basketball while I’m cooking the food on the grill. This is the epitome of family time. These Mahi Mahi and Vegetable Kabobs are the perfect recipe to try if you’re wanting to get your kids to like fish and vegetables. It’s colorful, fresh and full of clean flavors. Mahi Mahi is mild, a low calorie, low-fat source of protein, and it also has B-complex vitamins, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. Serve these kabobs with grilled asparagus or squash and zucchini this Easter or Passover dinner for something different and unexpected. It’s a healthy low carbohydrate main dish.

Labor Day Recipe: Easy Beef-Vegetable Kabobs

Celebrate Labor Day with these Easy Beef-Vegetable Kabobs. We make kabobs almost every week. My kids absolutely love them, and so do I. They are so simple to prepare and basically a complete meal. I serve them with rice and/or a salad, and dinner is on the table. I developed this recipe for US Wellness Meats. The quality of their beef is fabulous, and I love that they have kabob meat so there’s no slicing involved. This is what I will be serving on Labor Day, and I hope you have a great holiday!
