Summer Grilling Tips and Tricks

For many, summer is a passport out of the hot confines of the kitchen and into the territory of the outside grill. Celebrate the change of scenery by taking advantage of nature's delicious bounty. Let local produce provide inspiration for easy and wholesome summer meals, like grilled salmon fillets served alongside preboiled corn-on-the-cob. And, as you plan your meals, add to the enjoyment by making them as healthy as possible. For example, grilling high-fat meats directly above flame or close to the heat source for a long period of time can create carcinogens (chemicals believed to lead to cancer). In short, when it comes to healthy outdoor eating, think lean protein with lots of vegetables and fruits grilled over low-heat as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Check out our summer grilling article for more tips and tricks on how to make this grilling season the best one yet.
