4 Reasons to Grill
It Reduces Fat
Grilling is one of the leanest ways to cook. You can actually watch the fat drip off! Grilling reduces both the calorie and saturated fat content of your food; what else needs to be said?
It Adds Flavor
Grilling adds unique flavor to your food. You don’t need to douse your steak in high-calorie, high-sugar sauce. If you use sauce, remember a little goes a long way.
Grills heat up and cook food quickly. There’s no need to preheat or prep the grill (besides brushing off the remnants from your last grilling session). If you’re time-pressed, grilling is a solid option.
It Takes You Outdoors
Grilling is a great way to get off the couch and enjoy Mother Nature. Don’t stand over a stove; go outside and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the great outdoors!
5 Tips For Grilling Perfection
Keep It Simple
Keep fresh rosemary and lemon pepper next to the barbeque at all times. This adds extra flavor to your food without increasing the calorie or fat content.
Don’t hesitate to experiment with your seasoning mixtures! Try different flavors and amounts until you find the perfect combo!
Marinating is one of the top ways to boost flavor and moisture in your meat. Throw steaks, chicken or salmon into a large Ziploc bag and pour in marinade sauce. Allow the meat to marinate for at least two hours to let the juices soak in.
Watch out though, some marinades can be pretty high in sugar and calorie content.
Get The Tools
A nice set of grilling utensils adds pizzazz to your grill and builds cooking confidence. Use a metal spatula (plastic melts!). Use sturdy tongs; nothing is worse than grilling, and then dropping, Americanized meat.
You look like a veteran grillmaster with the right tools!
If you’re in a time crunch but still want a grilled dinner, partially cook your food in the microwave first. It won’t alter the taste too much and it definitely speeds up the cooking process.
Don’t Be Saucy
Don’t kill the grill flavor by drowning your meat in sauces! Sauces should add to the unique flavor of the grill, not overpower it!
