Honey Lime Glazed Steak Kabobs with Summer Melon Kabobs

Serve with Quick Greek Brown Rice

When I think of summer and food, my taste buds immediately crave a simple but flavorful grilled meal. This kabob recipe fits the bill with an easy, slightly sweet marinade for both the steak and summer melons. Dipped in a cool, cumin-scented yogurt sauce and paired with a nutrient-rich brown rice side, this meal cries out for al fresco dining.

Honey BBQ’d Chicken Wings

Serve with carrots and celery sticks with feta cheese dip-

I like to come up with healthier versions of fast food my family loves. I tinkered around with a baked version of wings that would be just as tasty as the fried version. It took me a few times to get the flavor and crispiness right, but this version got two thumbs up! Most of the time needed for this meal is the cook time of the wings, leaving plenty of time to prepare your crudités and even flip through a magazine.

Tuscan Chicken and Tomato Salad

Serve with grilled garlic cheese bread-

This is the perfect tribute to summer’s plentiful tomatoes and fresh herbs. It is light eating during July and August’s sweltering days. I originally prepared this as a “stack” with the salad as a side, but it was so messy to eat that it ended up more as a salad. My family found that this final version is much easier to prepare and eat!

Chicken and Kale Quinoa Bowl

One of my favorite meals to order at our local First Watch lunch spot is the Pesto Chicken Quinoa Bowl. It is so crave worthy I knew I had to figure out how to make it at home so I invited good friend and TWM tester, Megan Weathers, over to help me recreate this nutritionally powerhouse one-bowl meal. I think I nailed it and I even have an equally amazing vegan version in the Suggestions (thanks to adapting for vegan-eating Megan).
