Healthy Father's Day BBQ

What to Serve for a Healthy Father's Day BBQ?

The whole family will appreciate every one of these curated dishes for their excellent taste, presentation, and nutritional qualities, making them perfect for a healthy Father’s Day BBQ.  

Variety and Nutritional Value

Lean and flavorful flank steak is on the menu because it is an excellent source of protein and provides essential nutrients such as iron, zinc, and B vitamins. Every steak needs a flavorful and vibrant topping, and chimichurri sauce fits the bill— the main ingredients, cilantro, parsley, and garlic, provide antioxidants and other essential nutrients. Roasted sweet potato fries make the list because the sweetness and spices offer a colorful and fun side dish. These fries are also packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, providing numerous health benefits, including supporting gut health and boosting immunity.

More Refreshing and Nutritious Dishes

To add some variety and additional nutritional value to the meal, I recommend the Elote Bowl. This Mexican street dish includes quinoa for extra protein, fiber, iron, and magnesium sources. This power bowl also contains garbanzo beans (chic peas) and corn, which are high in protein and fiber and provide a range of vitamins and minerals. As a refreshing side, enjoy a Caesar salad made with fresh romaine lettuce, a rich source of vitamins A and K. The homemade dressing includes mayonnaise made with avocado oil to add healthy fats to the diet.  

Create Memories for a Lifetime

Gathering for a backyard cookout, sharing stories, and enjoying delicious food make an enjoyable celebration. It’s a time to cherish Dad and create new memories while enjoying a wholesome and balanced feast. Try these tasty recipes for a healthy Father’s Day BBQ Feast!

Welcome to Supper Sanity

Hello, I’m Karen, a very passionate meal planner. As a mother of three, I have been planning family menus for years. When I was diagnosed with a digestive condition, I found it necessary to follow an eating regime that eliminated many ingredients. That made meal planning a health necessity. I’ve learned a lot and want to share my resources to simplify meal planning, shop efficiently and cook affordable homemade meals. If you wish to try new recipes, plan healthier meals, and enjoy a great dinner with your friends and family, Supper Sanity can help.
