Healthy Grilling

Barbeques can present you with diet-busting temptations, or clean options. The choice is yours.


Few things please the palate better than a juicy burger or steak coming off the grill. When it comes to barbecuing, red meat reigns as king. Unfortunately, it also wreaks havoc on your health with its artery clogging, saturated fat – fat that you busted your butt to shed at the gym. So the next time you fire up the grill, consider these healthy food options that not only taste great, but will also keep you lean and healthy throughout the year.

Lower Fat Meats

If cutting out meat just doesn’t cut it for you, consider at least substituting some leaner cuts when barbecuing, such as pork tenderloin, beef flank or sirloin steak. These cuts contain significantly less saturated fat than hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausage, while also offering more nutrients and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
