(HealthDay News) -- Want to enjoy some warm-weather grilling while eating food that's healthy? Grill up some fresh summer fruits and vegetables for a delicious twist to your menu.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests these fruits and veggies that are great on the grill:

  • Make a kabob with marinated bell peppers, mushrooms, eggplant, cherry tomatoes and onions.
  • Grill Portobello mushrooms for a delicious alternative to a burger.
  • For dessert, make a fruit kabob using peach or pineapple slices.
  • Grill slices of watermelon for a richer, bolder flavor.
