PINEAPPLELast weekend was Memorial Day weekend, a weekend to remember those in the Armed Forces and spend time with family and friends.  Here in Iowa it is finally starting to feel like summer, so it is time to break the grill out.  You can grill delicious healthy food and there is not much clean up!   My kids LOVE fresh pineapple on the grill.   The pineapple juice runs down their chins.  This sweet treat is so easy and good for them.

Another summer favorite in my house is this Strawberry Grilled Chicken Salad.  This is so easy and most of it can be prepared ahead of time and thrown together right before it is time to eat.  Depending on what type of salad dressing you use, this salad can be made gluten and soy free.   My kids have grown up eating spinach so they actually request it in salads, on sandwiches, and in their scrambled eggs. Start your children off eating healthy and they won’t know any different.  It is great to start kids off with healthy eating habits they will  take with them when they are on their own.
