Americana Grills wants to help you with a new year’s resolution that you can stick to and enjoy! Grill more and eat healthier! How can grilling more help you eat healthier, you ask? Let’s face it if it doesn’t taste good you won’t eat it. Using your Americana Grills charcoal grill as a resolution powerhouse to keep you eating healthy is the smart thing to do.
While all those around you are struggling to keep those New Year’s resolutions, you’ll be enjoying grilling and great food. Sure, when you think of grilling, you imagine burgers, hot dogs, ribs, and chicken wings covered in sauces and marinades. Of course, those over-processed and high-fat foods are our favorites to throw on the grill. But this year, you’re going to be more creative with what you throw on the grill.
Ask yourself, would you rather have a baked, almost tasteless piece of chicken or well seasoned charcoal-grilled flame-kissed chicken? Remember, grilling with charcoal will add to the flavor of any food you grill. Charcoal-grilled meats and vegetables can be just as delicious as the less than healthy counterparts. Here are some tips to get you started in keeping this resolution to grill healthier foods and more often.
Tip 1: Use Herbs With Big Taste
Use herbs like rosemary, garlic, thyme, and sage. These herbs have big, bold tastes that can help add a lot of flavor without adding calories from heavy marinades. Studies show that adding these herbs can reduce carcinogen formation.
Tip 2: Grill Your Vegetables
Yes, this sounds like a broken record to add more vegetables to your meals, but why not enjoy eating your vegetables? Grilling your vegetables can add the extra flavor to make them a side dish you want to eat. Vegetables are high in fiber and low-calorie, making them a good balance to meats.
Tip 3: Seafood
Substituting seafood like fish and shrimp can be a great change from heavier meats. Fish is packed with Omega-3s and is a tasty addition to your grilled resolution.
Tip 4: Grilled Fruit
Pineapples and peaches are among those fruits that make a delicious grilled dessert. The grill helps to caramelize the natural sugars in the fruit that elevates the flavor profile that makes it clear you’re not sacrificing anything on dessert.
If you don’t have an Americana Grill charcoal grill, it’s clear you need one. Now that we gave you some tips to have a grilled 2020, here are some of our favorite recipes to get your mouth watering and ready to grill.
