Health Tip: Grill Healthier
(HealthDay News) -- Eating healthier doesn't have to mean dousing the barbeque permanently.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions for healthier grilling:
- Choose lean meats such as skinless poultry, sirloin or flank steak, bison, pork tenderloin or fish, instead of fattier meats.
- Marinate meat in a low-sodium dry rub containing herbs and spices, instead of higher-sodium, higher-sugar, higher-fat marinades.
- Opt for healthier sides, such as quinoa, brown rice, whole-grain couscous or roasted potatoes.
- Grill veggies brushed with a bit of olive oil.
