Healthy Grilling Tips
- Choose lean proteins & trim!
Choosing lean cuts of meat such as chicken, turkey, and fish, is one of the best ways to have healthier recipes. If you want pork or beef, investigate the leaner cuts and trim visible fats.
- Marinade with intent!
Use marinades with herbs, spices, and acidic ingredients like vinegar or citrus to add flavor without adding excess calories.
- Use Healthy Oils!
The oil you use can impact not only the flavor, and higher smoker points but can also impact your overall health. Many choose to opt for olive oil instead of vegetable oil!
- Fruits & Veggies
You have heard it before, but the more colorful meals you have, the more potential to gain flavorful and healthy meals.
