Healthy Grilling Tips for the Summer Sizzle

Healthy Grilling Tips for the Summer Sizzle

Love to grill, but want some healthy grilling tips? As the summer weather sizzles, so does the grill.  The most popular time to grill out is in the summer months, but is your BBQ hurting you?  It is well known that cooking at high temperatures and charring meats releases toxins and AGE’s (advanced glycolated end products), which can damage the DNA of your cells and promote cancer growth.  In fact, charbroiled burgers release more toxins than a heavy-duty diesel truck!  Can you visualize sucking on a truck’s tailpipe the next time you bite into that juicy burger?

Grilling doesn’t have to be so bad if you try to follow a few healthy grilling tips:

Black Attack – Those black char marks on a steak look beautiful, but are signs that AGE’s have produced in the meat.  Avoid the char marks by flipping the meat frequently and cooking at a lower temperature.  Also, keep that grill clean and remove any black residue left from your last grilling session.

Green & Lean – Meats with less fat will prevent flames from flaring and touching the meat, allowing it to easily burn.  Smaller cuts of meat will allow for a quicker cooking time, which reduces the amount of exposure to carcinogens.  Precooking the meat will also shorten cooking time.  When your meat is cooked to perfection, pair it with a green veggie, which is loaded with antioxidants and glucosinolates, to help prevent the free radical damage in your cells.

Soak & Coat – Just marinating a piece of meat prior to cooking can reduce carcinogens by 88% and will keep the meat juicy and tender.

Try this delicious teriyaki marinade recipe made with Betsy’s Best. It can also be used as a dressing to pair your greens with your protein to help increase those antioxidants to protect your body. Have fun this summer on the grill now you know how to keep it healthy!

How To Hide Vegetables in Food

How To Hide Vegetables in Food

Are you wondering how to hide vegetables in food? You know greens are healthy for you. Your mother told you to eat them when you were little to make you strong; but are you getting enough in your diet?  Becoming a green eating machine is not as difficult as you might think even if you don’t like veggies.  You just have to know how to add them into your diet.  Here are some ways to sneak in those greens. Your health depends on it!

How To Hide Vegetables in Food?  Betsy’s Best Ideas

Smoothies: What better way to get your greens than to drink them in a smoothie!  For example, mask the taste with fruit and you won’t even know you are eating spinach.

Omelets: Turn your breakfast into a veggie fest by adding spinach, arugula, beet greens, parsley or cilantro and salsa into your eggs for a delicious twist!

Grilled: Roasting veggies is one of the easiest ways to enjoy a flavorful dish.  Grilled endive and radicchio are not commonly grilled foods but are flavorful companions to peppers, onions, and mushrooms.  Even throwing a portobello mushroom on the grill instead of steak will offer a healthier dish with a meaty flavor.

Baked: Baking or roasting veggies is as easy as 1-2-3.  Throw some kale on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil, massage 3 tablespoons of your favorite Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut or Seed Butter, sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.  You can also roast Brussels sprouts for a dish that is delish!

Shredded: When shredded finely, even tougher greens become easy to handle.  You can shred these greens for a healthy garnish on mashed potatoes or mix them into your favorite salad.

Wrap them up: Instead of using a tortilla, crunchy greens that contain a good amount of water, such as Swiss chard, bok choy, escarole, or romaine, make fantastic wraps for a variety of fillings, ranging from roasted eggplant, tomatoes, onion, and garlic to teriyaki chicken made with  Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut or Seed Butter.

These are some unique ways for how to hide vegetables in food and make your diet more colorful this spring.  Make sure to eat at least one green veggie a day, if not more!  There are so many fun ways to wrap, toss, blend or shred those veggies that you can easily add them to any meal!
