It’s already September! But who says grilling season is over? It’s a perfect activity for this time of year, with football season already upon us.

We all love barbeque chicken, burgers and ribs. That’s a no-brainer. But whether you are using a table-top charcoal grill or a 8-burner gas grill, this recipe is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Even kids love food on a stick. But be sure to supervise the younger ones when handling skewers.
It seems we are busier than ever these days. And recipes with fewer than eight ingredients are a must. They keep life simple, especially during the fall when it seems like there are more items on our to-do list than hours in a day.
And whether you are following the paleo diet, the Mediterranean diet or no diet at all, there are ample nutrients and limited carbs in this recipe. The beef supplies protein, iron, zinc, selenium and vitamins B6 and 12. And the red, yellow and green peppers offer a powerhouse of vitamins C and A. But as side note, red peppers – being the most mature – supply the most.
So savor the food and the good times with the people in your life! Florida Beef and Sweet Pepper Skewers will help you do just that.
