Lighten Up Summer Fare
Whether you fire up the grill or shop for prepared foods, you have plenty of options to choose from that are healthier than traditional summer fare. Use MetroHealth's conversion chart to help you serve up healthy alternatives at all of your summer gatherings. The site also includes a recipe for roasted red pepper and bean dip, a Mediterranean-inspired appetizer with protein, heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and fiber — a great alternative to high-fat, high-sodium dips. Serve with cut-up vegetables or toasted pita wedges.
