There's no denying that grilled meat tastes delicious, but unfortunately it's not always the healthiest option. The health risks of grilling can be minimized by using proper grilling technique, preparing food correctly, and using healthier ingredients. Take these ideas so that you can start enjoying your grill again!

Studies have shown that meat products cooked on the grill contain large amounts of deadly carcinogens. The exact cause of these carcinogens is unknown, but likely has to do with the char and smoke created from the grill. One proven method that reduces the absorption of carcinogens is marinating your meat. While many people use wine or beer as a marinade, keep yours healthier by using some of these ingredients:

  • Citrus juice
  • Virgin olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Rosemary
  • Ginger
