Health Tip: Grill a Healthier Meal

(HealthDay News) -- Summer is grilling season -- time to leave the kitchen and to fire up the barbecue.

For a healthier experience, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Grill meat slowly at a lower temperature, rather than searing over high heat. Charring can trigger formation of cancer-causing compounds.

  • Trim away fat before grilling meat.

  • Marinate meat for at least 30 minutes before grilling. Good marinades include vinegar, citrus juice, beer, wine or green tea.

  • For a healthier meal, grill tomatoes, onions, squash, mushrooms, pineapple, peppers or veggie burgers.

  • Throw out any leftover marinade.

  • Keep your grill clean.
