Come the warmer months you'd be forgiven for wanting to tuck into mountains of barbecued meaty goodness, as well as all the sides that go with it (we're pretty obsessed with coleslaw ourselves).

Inevitably that means you can start feeling like you've piled on the pounds, particularly when you want to feel good in a bikini.

Thankfully, we've scoured the internet to find some delicious recipes for you to try at home, which are perfect for summer nights but are still healthy. Click on each link below the pictures for the recipes.

Grilled chicken thighs with pineapple, corn and bell pepper relish

An alternative to chicken on the BBQ with a delicious sauce. As it's grilled, you don't get too much fat from this and two thighs will be 242 calories.

Roasted lemon, garlic and herb prawns

We can practically taste these prawns, serve with rice or just on their own. Eating prawns instead of beef or poultry in the same amount, will mean you consume about one-third the calories.

Burrito bowls

Don't want to eat the flour tortillas, or you're gluten free? Then these are a great spicy but healthy option. If you want rice, just make sure you go for brown.

Summer sunshine salad

A sweet summer salad which looks like a pretty rainbow. Don't be put off by the strange food combinations, it will taste incredible! The best part is that it's got blueberries in which are reported to help burn fat in abdominal fat cells.

Watermelon and feta salad

Another alternative combination for a summer salad. But, we all know that watermelon is brilliant for you and can even help reduce blood pressure.

Quinoa super salad

We've been championing the goodness of quinoa for some time now. So make like Gwyneth Paltrow and whip up this quino super salad. High in protein so you'll feel fuller for longer, and it's gluten free which will also aid in weight loss.

Carb free carnitas

If you want meat but don't want to go for the calorie-ladden carb fest of a burger, this one's for you.

Raw Rainbow Pad Thai

Make this healthy vegan dish with courgette noodles, instead of the usual egg or rice noodles and you'll definitely feel the health benefits. You won't get that bloated feeling, but you'll still feel full.

Thai red curry with poached asparagus

For those who can handle the heat, in the heat. And the best bit is it's only 170 calories per serving.

Slow Cooker Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Kale Stew

Who doesn't love a bit of kale? Try making this stew with two of the best superfoods around - sweet potatoes contain numerous benefits such as reducing the risk of heart attack, as well as loads of iron and vitamin C. Kale also is high in iron and has loads of anti-oxidants.
