Healthy BBQ Options

Nothing says Memorial Day like a backyard BBQ. So if you are firing up the grill here are some healthy options for you to consider.

Don't forget your veggies. Grilled vegetables taste great and are a great way to make sure you get your 5 - 7 servings of fruits and veggies. Why not kkip the potato chips and eat some grilled eggplant instead?

If you are going to grill up some burgers use grass fed beef it is better for you and the environment. Also, remember that is a good idea to marinate your meat before sticking it on the grill. Not only does the marinade prevent the meat from drying out, a common grilling faux pas, it also protects the meat from carcinogens created by smoke and high heat cooking. If you are grilling up some tri-tip, Yumsugar has a Shiraz-Soy marinade recipe for you to try. It looks tasty.

Maybe you want a meatless option, and if so I highly recommend Gardenburgers. Made from whole grain brown rice, rolled oats, and veggies - they not only taste good, but they are good for you. Or if you are in the mood for a hot dog try a Tofu Pup.

Happy Memorial Day!!!

eat something small before you go to the BBQ so you're not starving and head for the chips, sweets, and such. i'm putting strict rules for myself for today's BBQ!

Also some grilled chicken breast would be a good choice right? I can't really eat any of these meatless choices since I'm allergic to soy.
