Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Foil Packets are perfect for the grill. They're Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, healthy, and easy!I haven’t been this excited about a recipe in a long time.  For one, it is healthy, balanced, and delicious.  But most importantly, it is extremely easy to prepare and cook, which is at the top of my list for important recipe features at 40 weeks pregnant.  It is also even better when you have a husband that grills it for you in 90 degree weather.  Because clearly I’d rather be sitting in the air conditioning with my feet up!
