Avoid HCAs and PAHs – Cancer-causing Heterocyclic Amines (HCA) and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) can form when you cook high fat meats at high heat for long periods. Use leaner cuts of beef, pork, or skinless chicken in smaller sizes (skewers work great), combined with a PAH/HCA-busting marinade (olive oil + mint family herbs such as basic, mint, rosemary, thyme, and oregano) to minimize PAH/HCA formation.
Load up the fruits and veggies – Tomatoes, onions, peppers, zucchini, pineapple, mango, and even apples are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. They taste great on the grill, too!
Make your own healthy sides – Swap the traditional store-bought baked beans, cole slaw, macaroni salad and potato salad – which are usually loaded with saturated fat, sodium and sugar – for healthier homemade versions. Salads – bean, fruit, or leafy green – are also great.
