How many of you cooked on the grill last night? Summertime is grilling time for Americans!
Here are a few questions that often get raised on grilling and good health...thank you American Institute for Cancer for the great information on this topic.
What are the best choices for grilling?
Vegetables -- because natural phytochemicals in them stimulate enzymes that can convert carcinogenic compounds to an inactive form that is easily eliminated from the body.
Small portions of meat, like kebabs, because they cook fast and lean meats, like skinless chicken and fish because they drip less fat.
If you decide to grill meat, which simple cooking adjustments will reduce the formation of carcinogens?
Covering the grill with punctured aluminum foil, turning the gas down or waiting for the charcoal to become low-burning embers, raising the grilling surface, and placing meats to the side of the heat source.
