Let’s Get Grilling!



With summer officially here, it means our favorite days are upon us. Hot days, long nights, friends, food and sun. All the things, we have wanted for all year for.

For me, the one thing that I look forward to is the food. From pool parties, BBQ’s and endless holidays, summer is the time were all us meat eaters and paleo crazed CrossFittters can really enjoy ourselves. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, and go to crazy with our summer gains, I would like to provide you with a few tips. Below you will find my healthy, summer grilling ideas that will keep your heart, stomach and body happy.

Kabobs: You can use chicken, shrimp or beef.

  • Toss your meat, bell peppers, and onions in a bag filled with favorite marinade.
  • Thread your meat and veggies (you can use fruit as well, such as pineapple) on your skewers.
  • Coat the grill with olive oil.
  • Grill for 10-15 minutes and turn as needed.

Stuffed Burgers (Turkey or Beef)

  • Toss your meat, seasonings, and feta cheese in a mixing bowl.
  • Smash meat into individual patties.
  • Grill until your liking, turning only once.

Grilled Veggies (squash, zucchini, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms)

  • Thinly slice you vegetables.
  • Coat with olive oil or coconut or oil.
  • Grill until perfection!

Salmon Packets

  • Place Salmon on a sheet of foil.
  • Coat in olive oil, toss in lemon (for flavor)and green beans(for a full meal).
  • Cook meat until proper temperature.

Teriyaki Chicken Legs

  • Place chicken, teriyaki sauce, lemon juice, garlic, and sesame oil in a large resealable plastic bag. Seal bag, and shake to coat.
  • Coat Grill with oil.
  • Grill for 6-10 minutes or until juice run clear.


  • Enough said.
  • Whether it’s steak, chicken, pork, or seafood you know what to do.
