Shrimp and Chicken Skewers

Recipe Image: Shrimp and Chicken SkewersNothing signals the start to Summer better than the smell of a freshly fired up grill! There are so many different foods you can prepare on the grill - burgers, cauliflower steaks, roasted veggies, BBQ chicken, but one of our favorites are kabobs! I mean, what's not to love about a meal on a stick? Minimal mess, maximum flavor, and endless variety! Today, we've done chicken and shrimp skewers with a few of our favorite grilled veggies: zucchini, bell peppers, and tomatoes. But you can absolutely mix and match your favorite proteins and veggies (steak and mushrooms, chicken and broccoli, and so much more)! This dinner's a winner for even the pickiest of eaters. So go ahead and get the whole family skewering and start your Summer off on a healthy and delcious note! #grill

If you are one that needs accountability, Metabolic will definitely help keep you on track. The scheduled weigh-ins and food tracking have kept me on track for the last 4.5 months and I have lost 44.5 pounds to date. The specialists are always pushing and encouraging you to be your best self and celebrate all the little victories along the way. This is my second time with the program and I returned because I knew it was something I would keep with and get myself back on track after falling off the wagon after a Cat 5 hurricane and a pandemic. I’m thankful for their encouragement and push to make the best choices.
