A Healthy Father’s Day Menu for a Meat-and-Potatoes Dad

Even if dad is a meat-and-potatoes guy, these menu ideas are so tasty he won’t even notice if they’re missing from his plate. By taking advantage of fresh produce and grilling to add flavor without the excess fat, these ideas — everything from grilled portobello mushrooms to chicken tacos — make everyone happy. Skeptical? We’ve still got meat and potatoes on the list, too.
