4 Ways to Make Your Barbeque Healthier!
Published: 7/22/2013

It's barbeque time! Use these simple ideas to make your outdoor cooking experience healthy as well as tasty:

  1. Limit the quantity of processed meat you grill. Swap out the hotdogs for grass-fed meats, wild-caught fish or grilled vegetables.
  2. Precook your foods in the oven or on the stovetop and finish them off outdoors - less grill time means fewer burned and blackened areas, which may promote cancer.
  3. Marinate your meats. If you are grilling meats, use marinade - it may help reduce formation of carcinogenic compounds, especially if it's made with spices such as ginger, rosemary and turmeric. 
  4. Avoid using lighter fluid or self-starting packages of briquettes in a charcoal grill - they will leave residues of toxic chemicals in your food. A healthy alternative is an inexpensive chimney lighter that uses a small amount of newspaper to ignite a mass of charcoal in a large metal cylinder. Gas grills are good alternatives to those that use charcoal.
