Yes we are on a grilling kick... for some reason grilling seems to prolong the feeling of summer. Although we now live in the sunny state of Arizona, we are always looking for ways to get that feeling of summer longer.

Did you know studies show: that fish, due to the high omega 3 content, decreases the risk of depression, ADHD, Alzheiemer's disease, dementia, and diabetes? Fish is packed with protein, vitamins, and nutrients that can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke. High Blood Pressure significantly increases the risks of heart, brain, kidney damage, as well as other health problems.
