In case you were wondering, I am still alive 🙂 I have been posting over at my original blog – nutritionhealthlife.wordpress.com. I’ve decided that while I like the idea of having all of my recipes in one place, separate from other posts, it is too time consuming to go back and forth. With that, I am going to stop posting here and will be over at nutritionhealthlife.wordpress.com if you want to stop over!

Last year J and I got a new gas grill. We have always used charcoal (a little Smokey Joe actually), but didn’t grill as often as we would like since charcoal takes so long to warm up. We finally had space for a full-size grill at our house, so we decided to splurge and get a nice full-size gas grill.
When the weather starts to warm up it is a great opportunity to get out and grill. Gas grills are ready in a matter of minutes and there is no need to worry about heating up the house anymore than mother nature already has. To save money and get some use out of our new grill, we have decided to grill all of our meat for the month of June. Delish.com had a great slide show with 18 different grilled meat recipes that I went through to decide what we would make for the month. There was also a page with 21 grilled vegetable recipes that you should check out as well. Stay tuned for new recipes all month long!
I am sure you all were pleasantly surprised to find so many new recipes in the last few months. In fact, there were so many that Jason has some catching up to do! Because of this (and the fact that I am wrapping up an extra stressful block in the next week), there might be a little delay in the next few posts. No worries…more recipes to come!
I have decided to put the recipes back on the nutritionhealthlife.wordpress.com blog since the two separate websites have turned out to be more confusing that helpful. I will continue to post them here as well since it just takes an extra minute, but if you are interested in learning a little something too, be sure to visit the other website listed above.
These are super easy muffins I found on GreenLiteBites and they taste delicious fresh out of the oven. They contain no flour, so if you have celiac disease/gluten intolerance, you could make these with gluten-free oats. Since they are so dense and moist, if you don’t eat them within a few days I would put them in the refrigerator. They taste the best warm.
