Delicious, simple, and healthy
steak and veggie kabobs

Who doesn’t like to grill out? Grilling is a great low-fat way to cook your food because it doesn’t involve adding any additional fat. Sirloin is one of the leaner cuts of beef; a 3 oz serving has less than 2 g saturated fat. Be sure to trim all visible fat, and include plenty of vegetables in your meal to add color and fiber.
