Four Veggies Perfect for Fourth of July Grilling

Hello dream lovers! I hope you’re having a great Tuesday. I am working from home today, as Arianna is home sick; she’s teething.

Traditionally the Fourth of July holiday falls on a weekend making for long weekends, but not this year. This year, the fourth is right smack in the middle of week, which means back to work on Thursday. But I don’t want to think about that so let’s stimulate our mental pallets with some amazing grilling veggies perfect for any independence day party.

Here are some veggies I’m dying to throw on the grill:

grilled asparagus

grilled asparagus, they’re so delicious and great source of antioxidants.

grilled corn

grilled corn, probably my favorite. corn is a great source of vitamins, including folic acid and niacin.

Did You Know? John Adams believed that July 2nd was the correct date on which to celebrate the birth of American independence, and would reportedly turn down invitations to appear at July 4th events in protest. Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826–the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. –www.history.com

grilled eggplant

I’ve read that eggplant contains dietary fibers that aids in reducing colon cancer, is a great source of vitamins A, B, C and potassium to name a few.

grilled portabella mushroom

I’ve had grilled mushroom at restaurants and kind of always wanted to try grilling some at home because I love sauteed mushrooms. Portabella mushrooms has lots of potassium which helps lower elevated blood pressure and reduces the risk of stroke.

bell peppers

Red bell peppers are packed with antioxidants and are a good source of vitamin C, thiamine, vitamin B6, and folic acid.

What veggies do you love to grill?

Til next post, happy grilling & 4th of July!
