4 Healthy Summer Meals

Summer is the season of endless fun! With so many outdoor adventures and beach vacations to look forward to, it’s important that you remember to nourish and hydrate your body this summer. Here are 4 healthy summer meals for busy bodies:

Caribbean Coconut Simmer Chicken

Is a Caribbean vacation out of budget this summer? Bring flavors of the Caribbean right to your kitchen table with this Caribbean Coconut Simmer Chicken dish. With flavors of bell pepper, coconut, garlic, chili powder, and more, this dish will tantalize your taste buds!

Serve the chicken over rice — or cauliflower rice and mixed veggies, if you’re pursuing a low-carb diet.

Surf & Turf Cioppino

Our Surf & Turf Cioppino is the perfect seafood-Italian crossover! Our favorite surf & turf combo for this seafood stew is calamari and sirloin — but feel free to mix it up. With flavors of garlic, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and tomatoes, you’ll be begging for seconds.

With only 13g of net carbs per serving, this dish is a well-balanced option for someone counting macros.

Chicken Bombs (Nuggets)

You’re never too old to enjoy chicken nuggets! Chicken nuggets are an easy option for a quick summer lunch, especially if you have kids. Coated in breadcrumbs, chicken nuggets can be high in carbs though.

Opt for our low-carb nuggets — tossed in crushed pork rinds! The pork rind crumbs are crisp and full of flavor.

Tuna “Noodle” Casserole

Pasta dishes are quick and easy — boil some noodles, top them off, and you’re done. Perfect for summer! However, pasta is high in carbs. If you’re looking for a low-carb alternative to pasta, try our Tuna Noodle Casserole with Hearts of Palm noodles.

Hearts of Palm noodles are low-carb because they aren’t actually noodles! Hearts of Palm noodles are harvested from palm trees, but are comparable in taste and texture.
