As if you haven’t heard it enough already—vegetables are good for you!
However, knowing and embracing the healthful benefits of veggies are two very different things, especially if you don’t like the taste of “green things” or if you happen to find the regular old blend of carrots, peas, and broccoli quite boring.

You probably already pop potatoes and corn on the cob on your grill. So opening up some space for veggies like bell peppers, leeks, eggplant, and portable mushrooms isn’t a far stretch.
Plus, grilling ensures you get your veggies along with a drizzle of heart-healthy olive oil. You only need a very light brush of oil. You can also per-marinate vegetables in a mixture of fresh spices (i.e., garlic, basil) and balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
