The summer BBQ can be heavy on fat and calories but there are easy ways to create a healthier BBQ feast without scrimping on taste. Try these simple tips from The Yorkshire Dietitian Vanessa Quarmby and HECK. 1. Fill your plate with veggies and salad. We should all be eating plenty of veg and BBQ season is the best time to eat more. Vegetables can be transformed into delicious dishes. Why not try asparagus brushed with oil or vegetable kebabs? Try peppers, mushrooms, courgettes, tomatoes and onions on skewers. They are really tasty if brushed with oil or a marinade. Corn on the cob is another delicious way of hitting your 5 a day. 2. Try not to burn or char food too much. Keep turning meat over on the BBQ and remove charred portions of meat before eating; all these tips can help you reduce your intake of unhealthy substances that can form when meat is heated at very high temperatures. 3. Many of us these days might be a little more conscious of the food we eat, whether for general health or weight loss reasons. If you’re watching your Top tips for a healthier BBQ With summer just around the corner and Bank Holiday BBQ’s on the radar, we take a look at how to create a healthier BBQ feast without scrimping on taste
