Health Tip: Grill Healthier

(HealthDay News) -- Eating healthier doesn't have to mean dousing the barbeque permanently.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions for healthier grilling:

  • Choose lean meats such as skinless poultry, sirloin or flank steak, bison, pork tenderloin or fish, instead of fattier meats.
  • Marinate meat in a low-sodium dry rub containing herbs and spices, instead of higher-sodium, higher-sugar, higher-fat marinades.
  • Opt for healthier sides, such as quinoa, brown rice, whole-grain couscous or roasted potatoes.
  • Grill veggies brushed with a bit of olive oil.
