12 EZ Meals on the Grill – Save time and money – 15 Minute Meals

When I fire up the grill, I try to cover it up and make as many leftovers as possible. You can experiment with grilling anything. I regularly grill zucchini, squash, sliced sweet potato, sliced egg plant, asparagus, green beans, sliced onion on foil, vegetable stir fry mix in a pan on the grill,   etc.  Spray or brush the vegetables with olive oil which helps keep the seasoning in place.

The trick to grilling squash and zucchini for leftovers is to not over grill it into mush. Take it off the grill while it’s still firm, when you reheat it at 500 degrees for 10 minutes it completes the process to perfection.  If I’m grilling to eat immediately, I’ll grill it until soft. Normally I’ll eat a big plateful with sauces after grilling and pull off any that’s too soft for optimal leftovers.

This is just one grill session where I made as many clean leftover meals as possible, in advance, then store in BPA free containers to use all week for quick 15 minute meals.

This grilling was two packs of Butterball turkey filets 8 pieces, cut most of them in half about 3 to 4 oz each serving. 90 to 120 calories and 16 serving. This is also several zucchini and yellow squash, cut a couple different ways. There’s at least a dozen 150 calorie servings, or more pictured. Add a salad, slice of Ezekiel Bread, and sauces for a very quick 350 to 400 calorie fresh food meal.


One benefit of grilling a week of meals at a time is the potential savings. I see the expensive clean brands of chicken and turkey marked down for quick sale all the time, because they’re approaching the sell by date. I scarf up all of it and take it home and either freeze it for the next grilling, or marinade, season, and grill it immediately.



Heat at 500 degrees for 10 minutes


200 Calories before sauces, Ezekiel Bread, or side salad, easily under 400 and tasty.


Still just 200 calories, 120 for meat, 50 sweet potato, 20+ on squash. Plenty of room for a side salad and or Ezekiel Bread.


Here’s another favorite way to use pre-grilled turkey and vegetables. I slice the turkey in a small frying pan with a little butter, clean, low-sodium sauce, onion, and mushroom to double the size of the entree. Now we’re putting together cleaner entrees that are a better substitute for the chemically laden frozen entrees many weight loss companies sell, or drop ship to your front door. Another trick I like is to slice the squash and zucchini up into the entree pan and make a big stir fry mix, instead of using them as sides.


In serious weight loss mode use either Ezekiel Bread or sweet potato slices, but not both at the same meal like pictured above. Add a big, clean side salad and sauces and you’re still under 400 calories.
