Welcome to this week’s Real Food Recipe Roundup, a collaboration between Sassy Moms in the City and Musings of a HousewifeNow that its official Summer are you finding it challenging to keep up with making dinner each night? Everyone wants to be outside and dinner is usually the last thing on our minds.

I find this time of year requires a little more effort in eating healthy which is why planning our week is so important. But I also like to be flexible and go with the flow based on whatever activity we have going on. My advice for summer is to do your best to prep and carry healthy snacks while on the go and make smart choices when eating out.

When all else fails and time isn’t on your side, there’s nothing easier than to throw some type of lean protein with veggies on the grill.

Don’t forget we’ve got a cool new giveaway from Chicago q, an upscale urban BBQ restaurant known for their artisanal house-made rubs.

Be sure to link up, share you’re own recipes and enter to win one of two Chicago q Bbq Setsincluding sauces and rubs- lots of good stuff to get you going on the grill.

    Thanks for hosting this week! While my potato salad uses a non-real ingredient (salad dressing), you can make your own if you prefer. I’ve done it both ways.
