Summer is in full swing and it’s time to fire up the grill! Say no to the creamy potato salads and shake up your grilling routine with these 7 healthy grilling tips and tricks.

Suns out Buns out
Swap your fatty burgers with a leaner meat, like salmon or turkey! To make them even healthier, trade in your bun for a grilled pineapple topper or wrap it in lettuce.
