Summer is here … my family’s favorite time of year, because not only do we love having fun in the sun, but we’re also seriously into grilling out as often as possible!
In fact, I’m such a huge grilling aficionado, I’ve created a special 7-Day Summer Grilling Meal Plan just for you! Meal planning is definitely a real sanity saver. That’s why I love sharing my family’s weekly gluten-free meal plans and teaching on the subject as often as I can. Meal planning is such a life-changing tool for eating healthier – and for saving time, money and stress!
To access the recipes, simply click on the meal plan image above and a PDF will open with hyperlinks to each of the recipes. Be sure to save the PDF to your computer first, then open it from your computer desktop since the meal plan requires a PDF reader in order for the links to open properly. Unfortunately, many mobile devices and tablets have trouble reading PDFs, so the best bet is to save it to your computer first.
One of my favorite ways to save time in the kitchen, is to “Cook Once, Eat Twice or More!” Basically, it’s a batch cooking method where you make double or triple the amount of a main ingredient, such as grilled chicken, so you can use it in several meals throughout the week. It’s such a huge time saver, which is why I make sure to schedule this technique into my weekly gluten-free meal plans as often as possible.
Another favorite time-saving tip you’ll notice in the Easy Summer Grilling Meal Plan is making a double batch of a side dish and saving half for a future meal. These delicious Roasted Sweet Potato Bites keep well in the fridge and can be quickly reheated in a toaster oven (or oven) in just 5 to 8 minutes.
And be sure to save room for dessert! You definitely don’t want to miss this fabulous recipe for Grilled Tropical Fruit Skewers. Yum!
