To Keep in Mind While You Shop and While You Grill
Fish and lean cuts of meat are great on the grill; be sure to remove fat and skin.
Limit consumption of processed meats that are frequently cooked on the grill (i.e. kielbasa, hotdogs, etc.)
Be aware of sauces packed with sugar and/or salt that are typically used on meats for flavor and/or condiments.
Look into using fresh herbs with olive oil or a marinade to flavor your meat.
Foil packets are a great, mess-free way to cook lean protein and vegetables on the grill.
Zucchini, asparagus, and summer squash cook up great on the grill.
Kabobs are an easy and fun way to add vegetables to your grilled meal.
Add lots of color to create variety in your vegetables.
Choose healthier sides: pick green salads and fruit salads over potato and pasta salads.
Pineapple, peaches, apples and plums grill up for a nice, healthy dessert.
