Health Tip: Healthy Grilling Options

(HealthDay News) -- The grill is a great way to cook healthy foods without heating up the kitchen.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these BBQ suggestions:

  • Choose lean meats, such as skinless chicken, 96 percent lean ground beef, pork tenderloin, bison, sirloin or flank steak or fish. Vegetarian options may include tofu or black bean burgers.

  • Skip oils and marinades in favor of a flavorful dry or low-sodium seasoning rubbed into meat.

  • Grill veggies, such as corn on the cob, zucchini, broccoli, yellow squash, asparagus or sweet potato.

  • For dessert, grill some fruit, such as sliced pineapple or peaches.
