Basic Healthy Grilling Tips

1.  Cube or slice meat into smaller portions to speed cook time, SIZE MATTERS.  Or, you can use a quick-cooking option such as shrimp or fish for your meat.

2.  The faster foods are cooked, the less likely they are to develop dangerous charring.  THE SHORTER THE COOK TIME, THE BETTER.

3.  Move your food to a cooler part of the grill while flare ups simmer.

4.  Reduce your exposure to carcinogenic compounds.  GRILL SOMETHING OTHER THAN MEAT. Opt for low or no-protein peaches, plums, tomatoes, eggplant, corn or breads.

5.  You want to avoid burning but not rip the meat apart.  FLIP AT THE RIGHT TIME. Give it a gentle tug; its ready to flip when it comes loose without pulling.

6.  Keep your grill rack spick-and-span to prevent other bits from causing flare-ups.  CLEAN THAT GRILLING MACHINE!!
