Carefree summer days call for easy, fresh meals. No hassles, no complicated recipes, and no big prep. Just grilled goodness eaten outdoors.
Even if you’re new to our blog, you know that our kitchen is all about anti-inflammatory eating, which makes our BBQ meal plan the perfect guide for easy entertaining on weekends, yet simple enough for a weeknight dinner and days of great leftovers.
What’s the big deal about anti-inflammatory eating?
The short answer is that it simply makes you feel better.
The longer answer is that it combats the harmful effects of chronic inflammation, which has been linked to all major health problems including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer’s.
One of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation is available at your grocery store without a prescription; It’s food! Choose the right anti-inflammatory foods to reduce your risk of illness. Consistently eat the wrong ones, and you could be accelerating the inflammatory disease process.
Summer is a particularly easy time to adopt an anti-inflammatory diet – there’s produce everywhere! An abundance of veggies isn’t the only way to fight inflammation, so start by eliminating the bad guys.
If a plate full of summer BBQ and sides sounds good just about now, then use our meal plan to stay on the healthy side of the street. And be prepared for a little DIY, as pre-made BBQ sauces and salads are often loaded with refined sugar and carbs and are not a good substitute in this meal.
