5 Top Tips For A Healthy BBQ

5 Top Tips For A Healthy BBQ

I’m back with Quorn to bring you a summer special, 5 Top Tips For A Healthy BBQ! All the tips will be outlined below and there’s a video to show you exactly how to complete the tips too!

 

Tip Number 1:

Let’s kick things off with a starter! Vegetable and Halloumi kebabs, which, in my opinion is a necessity at a bbq in some form! Then mixed with a selection of vegetables you have some of your 5 a day too. This makes an extremely tasty version for sometimes boring vegetables, which adds to your dietary fibre!

Thread whatever vegetables you like onto skewers that have been soaked in water, this prevents the skewers from burning and then pop pieces of halloumi on how often you like, I went for red peppers, courgette and sweet cherry tomatoes! Grill them for around 3-4 minutes each side.

And here’s a bonus tip, put some marinade in a zip lock bag and put your skewers in the bag to help marinade and also keep fresh, you can apply to this to anything you want to marinade too!

Tip Number 2

We’re going to reduce carbs with Burgers! Portobello Mushrooms are a great way to replace buns and replace a lot of carbs at the same time, and, we’re replacing them with micronutrients!

Trim any bits of the mushroom that are poking out and place on the grill, I’ll be using Quorn’s Meat Free Burgers today, they’re a nutritionally healthy protein source. Protein contributes to the growth in and maintenance of muscle mass! Cook them both for 4 minutes each side, and top with cheese in the last minute of grilling if you like!

Tip Number 3

The ultimate Sweet potatoes! If you grab a whole, washed sweet potato, wrap it in foil and place under the coals for about 30ish minutes, you’ll get the softest inside and perfectly cooked skin, and sweet potatoes are a highly satiating carb source and loaded with micronutrients!

Tip Number 4

Every bbq’ers worst nightmare, cooking fish on a grill, we’re gonna beat that, easily.

Grab a piece of foil, fold it over to create a tray, place a few slices of lemon on the tray for flavour and grab some fish, I went for the great source of omega 3’s, Salmon! Extremely delicious and flavoursome fish in my opinion. Place it on the lemon, and we’re gonna cook for about 5 minutes each side, if you don’t want to flip it, you don’t have to either

Tip Number 5

You didn’t think I was going to leave dessert out did you? yes, healthy dessert!”

Grab a banana, another one of your 5 a day, cut the ends of and slit it down the middle, try not to go through the other side, place on a sheet of foil and put some squares of 90% chocolate or there abouts depending on what you can find in the banana, wrap it up in the foil and place under the grill for around 10 minutes total
