More tips for BBQing this summer:
Fill your plate with lots of colour! Aim for half of your plate to be veggies.
Ideas to help you balance:
Make sure to have lots of salads with low fat or healthy fat dressings. Great dressings include plain yoghurt with a sprinkle of paprika or balsamic vinegar.
Include some non-meat alternatives such as tofu burgers, soy sausages and veggie kebabs.
Add grated and diced veggies to your hamburger mix.
Grill asparagus, corn and mushrooms.
Go for quality not quantity
Choose smaller, higher quality steaks with minimal ‘marbling’ and remember to trim the fat.
Try cooking fish on the BBQ. Salmon with a good smear of crushed ginger and some soy sauce works well.
Use the grill section
Use the grill section of the BBQ so the excess fat drips away.
For a healthy dessert try grilled fruit kebabs, bananas (skin on) or mango halves.
