If it’s over 90 degrees outside, there’s no way you’ll be cooking inside! But if you’re wondering how to keep it healthy and still partake in your summer grilling favorites, look no further. Here are four easy ways to swap out high-fat, high-salt foods without missing out on the classic tastes of summer.
- Bye-Bye Beef: Opt-out of fatty burgers for leaner plant-based grilling options, like a portobello mushroom cap, tofu, or veggie burger. Topped with Jersey fresh tomato and other fixings, you won’t miss the meat.
- Spice It Up: Skip the premade marinades, which are often salty and sugary, and rub your food with olive oil, citrus, spices, and herbs.
- Think Out Of The Bun: Who says the grill must be all about meat on a bun? Mix things up with a delicious low-carb grilled eggplant pesto pizza.
- Abracadabra Kebabs: Make some magic with your kebabs by choosing lean meats, fish and fruit. Pineapple, peach, and watermelon all grill up great, and the natural sugars make it extra flavorful.
