Summer Grilling Kickoff – 30 Clean Recipes You Don’t Want to Miss

Memorial Day is often the day we dust off the grill, gather with friends and family, and come together to celebrate food, family, and honor our nation’s fallen soldiers.

So whether you’re getting together with your crossfit box to do Murph or planning the ultimate Summer kickoff party, here’s a few of our favorite grill-friendly clean recipes to get the Summer grilling season started.

– Bring on the Burgers –

Burgers can be super simple in bulk, making them the perfect item to feed a crowd, but they don’t have to be boring! Spice up your burgers this season with a selection of topping and a flavor combinations from all over the globe. Here’s a few of our favorite options. Simple subs like coconut aminos for soy sauce, and homemade nut cheese or avocado for cheese help to round out our options along with simple staples like homemade mayo, and homemade condiments like ketchup, mustard and relish can make all the difference.

BTW… We feel strongly about supporting small, sustainability focused farmers like those you can find from places like Butcher Box and Crowd Cow, but most of these recipes can be easily transformed into meat free versions using products like Beyond Meat as well.

Okay… but how do you eat a burger without a bun?

There’s loads of bun alternatives! Try lettuce wrapping your burger, eating it in a bowl with lettuce and the toppings, or trying things like grilled portobello mushrooms or sliced and grilled eggplant and sweet potatoes instead of a bun.

Craving that bread life? We love Barely Bread and Bread Srsly and we think you will too.
