When grill season comes around, you might want to find the best recipes that match your health status. At the same time, you might want to hit your objectives for your weight loss. Amazingly, your health goals can be achieved  with food that you prepare on your grill.

There are many healthy grilled dinner ideas that taste delicious. They are ideal whether you are looking to lose weight, add weight, and maintain a certain diet or lifestyle. Here are twelve healthy grilled dinner ideas you can explore:

Dinner Idea #1: Grilled Chicken

There are many delicious ways to grill a chicken breast and either keep yours plain or add toppings. A little bit of cheese, a pickle, tomato, and some garnish, and you have a great low-carb, high-protein meal to enjoy. To make your grilled chicken dinner taste even better, make sure you invest in a high-quality gas grill from Napoleon.

Dinner Idea #2: Grilled Zucchini

Zucchini has a lot of water inside of it. As with any vegetable with high water content, be sure to dry it and salt it before putting it on the grill. From there, dry heat will do the rest. Some olive oil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, and lemon are all you need for the best-grilled zucchini.

Dinner Idea #3: Grilled Asparagus

Asparagus is a ‘super vegetable,’ but not many West eat it. A great way to try asparagus is to grill it. Toss them in some olive oil and lemon zest, season with some salt and black pepper, and as you pull them off your grill, you may want to add some parmesan over the top. This healthy grilled dinner idea might become the best asparagus you’ll ever have.

Dinner Idea #4: Grilled Shrimp

Shrimp and seafood can be very satisfying to grill and a healthy alternative over red meats. Try some spicy grilled shrimp skewers and see how you like them. Add some soy sauce, chilli, garlic sauce, honey, and olive oil to get a good taste going. If you choose to go easy on the spiciness, some olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic will do all the work you need it to.

Dinner Idea #5: Grilled Salmon

Although more expensive meat, salmon comes with many amazing health benefits. Grilled salmon is even better. Like chicken, there are many ways to go with it. A favourite of ours is to glaze it with some spicy Sriracha. Topped with some chopped French onion, you have a winning healthy grilled dinner idea waiting for you.

Dinner Idea #6: Grilled Tilapia

Another very tasty fish for you to enjoy is tilapia. Put a tilapia fillet inside a foil pack with a little bit of corn, honey, and a few pieces of lime. It’s another quick way to enjoy fish with some stunning tastes waiting to be devoured. The same approach can be taken to shrimp and other types of fish.

Dinner Idea #7: Grilled Vegetables

If you aren’t the biggest fan of vegetables, here’s a way to get more into your diet. In a foil package, you can toss all sorts of veggies, from sweet potatoes to carrots, turnips, peppers, tomatoes, corn, and more. It’s super-fast to do, with a little bit of olive oil and some of your favourite spices.

Dinner Idea #8: Grilled Cabbage Steaks

Cabbage steaks have gained much attention among vegetarians who like to grill in the past few years. Cabbage cut in slices at the thickness of a steak is seasoned and brushed with oil, and then taken off the grill and decorated with everything from crumbled cheeses to low-calorie dressing, red peppers, lemon, and fresh herbs.

Dinner Idea #9: Grilled Strawberries

Try some grilled strawberries on a skewer for an extra special treat from the grill. With melted butter, honey, and lemon zest, it’s the perfect unexpected BBQ treat you can pull out on a summertime afternoon. You can grill a lot of different berries and fruit similarly, creating unique fruit salads.

Dinner Idea #10: Grilled Cauliflower

Cauliflower is such a great vegetable and grilled with some olive oil, and it can be done in many delicious ways. A little bit of garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and paprika is a basic spice mix to start with. Once the cauliflower’s off the grill, top it with low-calorie shredded cheese and drizzle with dressing. It’s a perfect snack.

Dinner Idea #11: Grilled Potatoes

People avoid potatoes on a low-carb diet, but they can be very filling and nutritious in small portions. There are many ways to grill potatoes, either alone or with other vegetables. In a foil wrap, cut some baby red potatoes and lay them out with olive oil, rosemary, and sage, or opt for herbs and garlic instead. Either way, you end up with a delicious side ready to add to a plate.

Dinner Idea #12: Grilled Pineapple Buns

Toss out the gluten, white bread, and carbs. Grill up some pineapple rings to add a tropical flavour to your next burger. While you’re at it, you can toss on your patties and char some red onions. Top the burger with a slice of pepper jack and slap it between two pineapple rings to add antioxidants and remove carbs you don’t need.
