How to Grill Healthy this Summer

Summer is finally here and that means we can indulge and learn How to Grill Healthy this Summer!

There is just something delicious about eating grilled food, especially Canadian Turkey. If you’re interested in learning how to grill healthy this summer, check out these tips.

Get Rid of the Fat

Have you ever seen the flames on your grill go up in smoke?

You can avoid this by trimming the fat on the meat you’re grilling. When the fat melts, it’s going into the flame and causing smoke and flames.

Don’t be Afraid to Marinate

Something that makes meat good on the grill is marinating.

Don’t be afraid to marinate your meat before you cook it. There is just something delicious about sauces, spices, or even beer on your meat to tenderize and enhance the flavour.

The flavour is out of this world!

Try Cooking an Entire Meal on the Grill

Maybe you have only cooked meat on the grill, you need to try an entire meal.

You can avoid sugary sauces and other not-so-good-for-you foods by grilling veggies. Try grilling almost any meat and veggie on the grill, give it a try.

Have you ever tried corn on the cobb – awesomeness!

Get in a Little Movement

One of the best things about the grill is it does a lot of the work for you.

As you grill your food, play a little frisbee or basketball with the family. A little movement can go a long way!

Besides, you’re making memories and that’s the most important thing. Canadian Turkey is one of our favorite things to grill during the summer months.

Grilling Canadian Turkey

You certainly won’t be running out of Canadian Turkey options anytime soon. Keep in mind that turkey is an excellent choice for any day of the week, especially on the grill.
