Grill Up Some Love

I recently held a contest on The Eat-Clean Diet website asking for your best Father’s Day grill menu ideas, and you didn’t disappoint with all of your amazing suggestions. Below I have included two creative menu ideas to inspire you PLUS my recipe suggestions. 

Grilling up a clean & delicious meal is a great way to do something nice for the dads in your life this Sunday. What are your plans?
