Do you love to cook but hate to clean? Then summer is your season. One of the many perks to grilling is the minimal cleanup it involves. Sure, you might whip up a marinade in the kitchen and have to rinse a bowl, but grilling rarely involves scrubbing multiple pots and pans. For even less of a mess, grab a roll of aluminum foil and grill — and even serve! — your meal in foil packs.
Check out these unexpected dishes to grill in foil and witness how versatile this cooking method can be. It’s not just for small vegetables and delicate fish anymore — we’re talking spaghetti, French toast and meatloaf. These genius foil packs will work for your next camping expedition, quick weeknight dinner or backyard barbecue, and low calorie counts are just another bonus. Read more

I used to be totally against anything related to a hot dog. Two kids later, I find myself turning to them as a viable option for the occasional backyard barbecue or last-minute weeknight dinner. Part of the reason I changed my mind was because of healthier options. After reading TONS of ingredient labels, I found some decent choices out there, with something to please everyone (including vegetarians). In honor of National Hot Dog Day, here are some of the top dogs.
Applegate Farms Uncured Beef Hot Dog
Beef, spices and that’s about it. These tasty hot dogs are free of nitrates and have only 70 calories and 6 grams of fat. Organic versions are also available and Applegate Farms uses no antibiotics with their animals.
Field Roast Vegetarian Frankfurter
Super popular among vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, this 2.75-ounce “frankfurter” contains 180 calories and 8 grams of fat. It’s made from wheat gluten, tomato paste and spices. It’s a bit high in the sodium department (690 milligrams), so reserve for occasional enjoyment.
