Tips for A Healthy Barbecue

Want to enjoy some delicious grilled food without endangering your beach figure? For healthy barbecues, there are plenty of low-fat alternatives for the grill and healthy and delicious marinades.

Simple, healthy barbecues

Greasy neck steaks, belly meat and roast sausages with white bread and herb butter seem an indispensable part of the barbecue—but that’s not true! A BBQ party can be a complete success even without all these things. Try a lean steak, which gives you plenty of protein and is delicious even without sauce. You could also try substitute fish and chicken or, for vegetarians, grilled cheese or vegetables to sizzle over the hot embers.

One of the most important side dishes: bread

The Panasonic bread maker will allow you to stay away from the typical bread you buy, so you can offer your guests a healthy alternative. The numerous automatic programs for wholegrain, rye bread or brioche are ideal for the fitness-conscious person. And even a pasta salad can be upgraded with home-made gluten-free pasta dough.

Tips for A Healthy Barbecue

Health-conscious grilling does not end with the food

  • High quality charcoal: Don’t purchase your fuel solely on the price. An indication of high quality is when the charcoal is only one type of wood. Information can also be found on the label about whether the coal has been tested for harmful substances.
  • Exercise patience: Alcohol and other liquid accelerators are not the safest methods for heating the grill. A better alternative is a fixed ignition cube, which will allow you start after about 20 minutes.
  • Beer marinade: When you expose your food to a beer shower two things happen—the grill will start to smoke horribly, and your delicious marinade on the meat will be covered with ashes. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up beer as an ingredient; try creating a delicious marinade ahead of time with beer, honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and fine spices.
  • Clean after cooking: Make sure to thoroughly clean the grill after use, because fire residues can also contain toxic substances. The wire brush and dish soap are your best friends for this task.

With these tips, you are now well prepared for your next healthy and delicious barbecue.
