3 Tips to Make Your Barbecue Dishes Healthier

There is nothing better than a great barbecue in the summer time, but it’s easy to succumb to indulging in classic barbecue dishes like fatty cheeseburgers, creamy salads, and greasy chips. However, making your barbecue healthy isn’t hard and it can be equally, if not more, delicious. Follow these three tips to make your next barbecue healthier for your friends and family.

1. Grill Lean Meats and More Vegetables
Leaner meats are not only better for you because they have a lower fat content, but in our healthy grilling tips we found that they also lead to the development of fewer cancer causing heterocyclic amines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons during the cooking process. In addition to choosing leaner cuts of meat such as free range chicken, pasture raised pork, and grass fed beef. Fish is another great option, but just be sure to opt for one that is low in mercury such as flounder, haddock, or salmon. Vegetables are another excellent option to toss onto the grill, and can be really filling when marinated and cooked kebob style. Portobello mushrooms, peppers, onions, and tomatoes are all great choices.
