(HealthDay News) — Thinking of grilling dinner tonight? Meat and other animal products don’t have to be on the menu.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Grilling veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs.
  • Making macaroni and cheese and potato salad with egg-free and dairy-free substitutes.
  • Making Caesar salad dressing with nuts, nutritional yeast and soy sauce, instead of anchovies
  • Baking homemade kale chips instead of potato chips.
  • Grilling fresh fruit for dessert, or enjoying dairy-free ice cream.
