Hot off the Grill: 10 Healthy BBQ Recipes


Healthy BBQ Recipes | Salmon Skewers

Salmon Skewers from Sprouted Kitchen


As temperatures are rising and the sun is (finally!) shining in the Netherlands, everyone is gearing up for a summer full of al fresco dining with family and friends. And as much as I enjoy catching up with my loved ones in the garden, I’m not a huge fan of greasy pork sausages and fatty potato salads that are often served at barbecues. So I drew some inspiration from my favourite food blogs and found some amazing recipes that are perfect for the grill. They are easy to make, fresh and tasty, and above all: 100% guilt free! Enjoy!


Real – deal Iced Tea from The First Mess is the perfect refreshment on warm Summer nights.
