It’s the summer and it’s most definitely barbecue weather. But what to cook? Barbecues are great but the usual offering of burgers, sausages and chicken can get boring rather quickly. It’s also not particularly healthy.
Check out these top tips to keep your barbecues varied and healthy.
- Scrub the grill. A few passes of a good stiff grill brush will take off any charred compounds lingering on the grill. These bits of charred residue harbour potentially harmful and fatty chemicals that might transfer to what you are cooking.
- Pick the right meats. Try something like grilled chicken with tomato-avocado salad or grilled chicken with BBQ sauce sound. Light recipes are good to grill not only for flavour, but also for health. Chicken is lower in saturated fat than red meats such as steak or burgers.
The best red meat choices are the leaner cut steaks such as round, loin or sirloin.
