May Work/Life Line: Health BBQ

Contributed by Katie Sack on 05/01/2014 

The month of May means Memorial Day is coming, which marks the beginning of summer foods and cooking for most people. Barbequing is a popular part of summer meals, but it can wreak havoc on efforts towards healthy eating. Follow these tips to stay healthy all summer long and still enjoy your favorite barbequed foods!

  • Instead of always grilling meat, use more heart-healthy fish such as salmon or trout
  • Substitute hamburgers with skinless chicken breast or turkey burgers
  • Use low-fat cheese on burgers and sandwiches, and choose rolls that are 100% whole grain
  • Burned meat can mean consuming carcinogens – avoid overcooking, be sure to clean off any old charred food before using your grill again, and marinate food before cooking to reduce the presence of carcinogenic materials
