Whether it’s a tent in your backyard or a remote campsite in the woods, carve out an evening this summer to unplug and unwind for some quality family time away from the distractions of home. After a day in the great outdoors, refuel with a healthy, protein-packed dinner on the grill.
Grilling in aluminum foil packets steams the food, keeping it tender and flavorful without adding a lot of fat – plus, cleanup is a breeze. Substitute whatever fresh veggies your family likes – cherry tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, small red potatoes and mushrooms all work well.
