Go Ahead, Make Dad’s Day….. This Father’s Day, give dad a break from his grilling duties and treat him to a healthy meal that he will truly enjoy. Keep the festivities light, while preparing a delicious, dad-approved dinner with these easy, yet simple ideas:
- Make your own marinade by experimenting with a combination of fresh lemon or lime juice, a few teaspoons of olive oil, a splash of soy sauce and pinch of fresh herbs. See the recipe below from Food & Wine Magazine,featuring Salmon Steaks with Soy-Maple Glaze.
- Instead of making beef the main attraction, switch it up and go for the good healthy fats, with salmon and tuna steaks which are a great source of heart-friendly Omega 3 fatty acids. In being healthy the whole year-round , try to make them a part of diet by including them on your menu at least twice a week. Like a “Meatless Monday” or ” Fish on Fridays”.
- Instead of the standard sides of slaws and heavy potato salads laden with mayonnaise , have a selection of a colorful variety of seasonal fruits and grilled vegetables. You can even grill fruits, such as peaches and pineapples for a great dessert option.
