Never let your meat grill alone!
Always add vegetables. Bring back family style vegetables to the table! You can grill several types of vegetables at one time. Grilled vegetables don’t need butter or sauces, just olive oil and cracked pepper. Experiment with new vegetables on the grill, this will really help broaden your eating habits. Below are the top vegetables that are most often on our grills. They are packed with vitamins and antioxidants and low in calories.
Grill more fish, chicken and lean meats.
The grill is not just for red meat. GrillGrates makes it easier to grill chicken, fish, and other lean meats. Instead of rib-eye steaks, we’ll be grilling salmon and tuna like a steak-hot and fast!
Meat is not the enemy- just don’t burn it.
Charred, burned meat does contain known carcinogens but there are plenty of ways to off-set them. The research is not in dispute here. Grill food to goal temps, avoid too much open flame or grilling too well done. Grilling faster can also reduce the amount of char.
Grill more kinds of vegetables.
No butter or calorie-rich sauces required. Sweet potatoes, beets, carrots and squash caramelize at grill temps letting the natural sugars deliver the best and tastiest flavor. Grill peppers, onions, zucchini, with just a touch of olive oil and pepper. Enjoy all that antioxidant power working to improve your health while offsetting the effects of cooking red meat.
When planning meals remember that a healthy portion of protein is 2 to 3 ounces of cooked lean meat, poultry or fish. 3 ounces of cooked meat is about the size of a deck of cards or a computer mouse.
Spice up grilled meats.
The antioxidant power of herbs, particularly rosemary, paprika, garlic, sage and black pepper, add flavor to your meats while providing health benefits.
Grill on a clean hot grill and ban flare-ups.
Eliminating flare-ups is the best way to control char and gain control of the grill. The three-dimensional design of our GrillGrates does just that.
