This week you likely laughed and cried and were bored and angry, all while watching the Republican and Democratic conventions and drowning yourself in buckets of blueberries. (Hopefully you also got inspired to go check out these excellent Philadelphia and Cleveland restaurants.)

So this weekend you’re no doubt ready to hit a festival, a golf course, a yoga mat, a beach or an air-conditioned bedroom, so you can zone out. But how do you relax if you’ve got people coming over and they need to be fed? Who wants to turn on an oven during our tiresome “heat dome?”

We at Clean Plates have you covered. Our grilled brunch menu hits all the right bases—garden fresh, simple, healthy and oh-so tasty. It’s done in about 10 minutes, and gives you the requisite protein and antioxidants to Netflix and chill.

Make the recipes and upload a photo to Instagram or Pinterest with the tag #cleanplates. We’ll choose our favorite and that person will win a free Clean Plates Cookbook.
