Summer Squash and Zucchini


Fire up the grill with slices of fresh summer squash and zucchini — slimming, nutrient-packed alternatives to belly-bulging barbecue sides like potato and macaroni salad. They’re a perfect choice because, unlike gassy veggies, they fill you up without puffing you out. For an easy, low-cal prep, spray your squash, zucchini, and any other produce picks like bell peppers or mushrooms with an oil mister, then lightly toss with seasonings and pop them on the grill. Enjoy them straight up—or add them to a pita pocket with hummus and feta cheese to create a flavorful Mediterranean sandwich — a light, vegetarian entrée everyone will love!
