More Tips for a Healthy BBQ

You've heard me tell you that one way to keep barbecuing safe is by marinating your meat before cooking it to greatly reduce the production of these carcinogens. A recent issue of the Harvard Health Letter gives us four more suggestions to keeping grilling safe and free of cancer-causing properties:

  • Cook smaller pieces: They cook more quickly and at lower temperatures.
  • Choose leaner meat: Less fat should reduce flames and therefore smoke.
  • Precook in the microwave: Doing so for two minutes may decrease heterocyclic amines by 90%, according to some research.
  • Flip frequently: That way, neither side has time to absorb or lose too much heat.

Still looking for other ways to have a healthy BBQ, then check out my previous posts.

I am surprised to read about pre-cooking in the microwave. I' d never have thought to do that. I LOVE grilled cucumber - my husband always makes my special kabob with tomaot, onion cucumber and chicken. Delish!
