You can cook healthy fruits and vegetables. It is a very good habit to grill fruits and vegetables with your grilling machine. You can cook different kinds of vegetables. There are some recipe books which will show you how to grill vegetables and fruits. You can grill tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini, onions, mango, apple etc. Any kind of fruits you want to grill. This is a very healthy habit of grilling vegetables. I’m not telling you to stop grilling other foods like burgers or steak. But always remember to serve vegetables with them. It will be a good habit for you and your family.
Always marinate your food. Soak your vegetables or meat in a tasty marinade. Add different kinds of spices like garlic, onion, herbs. You can even add honey, lemon or wine. These things will make your meat or fish healthier as well as very tasty. Marinate your meat at least 2 hours before grilling and marinate fish 1 hour before.
Cook for less time. It is a very good habit to cook your meat or fish in the microwave oven before you start grilling. It is a lot healthier than grilling the whole food in your bbq grill. Most people don’t want to do that. But trust me. It is very healthy even I do it all the time. If you don’t want to use a microwave oven, cut your fish or meat in smaller pieces so that you can cook them very fast.
