Grilled Peaches – a summertime favorite!

We like ours straight from the grill without any doctoring- but there are some yummy looking cinnamon butter glazes that you could try if the mood suits you.

The cooking time will depend on how ripe your peaches are- these were a little on the hard side so we grilled them for about 20 minutes but a ripe peach might only take 5 minutes. (They should be toasty and soft when they’re done). I love Spectrum cold pressed avocado oil spray which doesn’t have any propellants to keep them from sticking (spray the peach, not the grill).

Capresi is one of my favorite summer dishes! This simple salad is similar, without the mozzarella.

-1 tomato
– generous handful of fresh basil
– olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt & pepper to taste.

-I like to add nori flakes to mine as well, they’re reminiscent of seasoned salt and add iodine, which we don’t get a lot of in an American diet.

Deep green leafy vegetables are a super food – kale, beet greens, collard greens, chard, etc.

These are easy to add into any meal if you’re looking to boost nutrition without making a whole meal of it. (Also good for picky palates!)

Here’s how you do it: once you’ve cleaned the greens, chop them up until they’re VERY fine. I have little patience for things like chopping, so I use a food processor. 😄
Then, add the finely chopped greens in small amounts to your recipes. If you’re new to this or dealing with a picky eater then add a very small about (~1/8 cup). If you like greens then add as much as you’d like!

Here’re some examples:
– spaghetti: add the greens to your sauce as it’s cooking. Complete recipe as normal.

-hamburgers: add your greens to the raw meat before cooking.

– fabulous addition to almost all savory soups.

Let me know if you try this and how you like it!
