Grilling Season Marinades

Grilling season is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the taste that a grill adds to the food but I also enjoy the ease of cleanup. Its a win/win in my book. 

Marinade For  Chicken

2 TBSP avocado or olive oil

1 lime - the zest and juice

2 TBSP fresh cilantro - chopped and more for garnish

1/4 teaspoon each: salt and pepper

2 pounds chicken breast

First make the marinade for your chicken. In a large Ziploc, combine your avocado or olive oil, lime zest and juice, chopped cilantro, salt, and pepper. Add in your chicken and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or up to 24 hours.

Marinade For Beef

1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1/8 cup coconut aminos
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 lb. flank steak, cut against the grain into thin strips

Mix together ingredients for marinade, and pour over the sliced beef. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or up to 24 hours.

Enjoy the flavors these marinades add to your next meal. Send me your favorite marinade blend.

To Your Best Health,
