The Best Foods to BBQ on BT
The grill is our go-to way to cook in the summer. While we may think we’re being healthier in the summer, many of us pack on a few pounds over the warm months. Outdoor celebrating usually means eating and drinking.
On Breakfast Television I break down the best meats & veggies to grill, and which to steer clear of. Watch it here.
MeatsPick: Filet Top sirloin New York Strip Flank T Bone Pork Tenderloin Pork Chops Lean Ground Beef Chicken Breast Lean Ground Chicken
Skip:Rib Eye Regular Ground Beef Pork Ribs Hot Dogs Sausages Bratwurst Wings Dark Chicken with Skin (The skin adds double the fat and 30% more calories; dark meat adds 30% more calories as well.)
FishPick: Firm fish like: Salmon Shrimp Tuna Cod Tilapia
Skip:-delicate fish like sole
Tips: don't marinate fish for more than 15 minutes. Using a cedar plank to cook fish infuses flavour and the fish won't stick to it.
