Summer is grilling season. This year, think beyond the meat. In the time it takes to cook burgers or chicken breasts, you can have a tasty vegetable side dish ready as well. Megan Moore, R.D., L.D., CDE, a nutritionist at Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano, says, “When you fill your plate with veggies, you won’t overeat on meat, bread, and processed foods like potato chips.”
Different vegetables come into season throughout the summer and fall, so choose what’s fresh and try something new.
For a tasty topping for grilled pork chops, fish or chicken breasts, Moore recommends this salsa.
