Planning on grilling out this weekend? Instead of the same ol’ burgers and brats, show dad the love with healthier choices like chicken and seafood, along with fresh veggies and seasonal fruits. Here are three quick and easy recipes to help you get started!

Zesty Chicken Burgers

½ tsp. cayenne
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions: Mix all ingredients except lemon in a large bowl. Shape into patties and chill for 30 minutes to set. Place patties on a gas or charcoal grill and cook 5 to 6 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Squeeze lemon over cooked burgers and serve with salad greens or grilled veggies.
