The Best Foods to BBQ on BT

The grill is our go-to way to cook in the summer. While we may think we’re being healthier in the summer, many of us pack on a few pounds over the warm months. Outdoor celebrating usually means eating and drinking.

On Breakfast Television I break down the best meats & veggies to grill, and which to steer clear of.

Fruit Veggies Chicken Worst Meats Best Meats

Meats

Pick:

Filet

Top sirloin

New York Strip

Flank

T Bone

Pork Tenderloin

Pork Chops

Lean Ground Beef

Chicken Breast

Lean Ground Chicken

 

Skip:

Rib Eye

Regular Ground Beef

Pork Ribs

Hot Dogs

Sausages

Bratwurst

Wings

 

Dark Chicken with Skin (The skin adds double the fat and 30% more calories; dark meat adds 30% more calories as well.)

Fish

Pick:

Firm fish like:

Salmon

Shrimp

Tuna

Cod

Tilapia

Skip:

-delicate fish like sole

 

Tips: don’t marinate fish for more than 15 minutes. Using a cedar plank to cook fish infuses flavour and the fish won’t stick to it.


Vegetables and Fruits

Potatoes and Sweet Potato Wedges – boil first

Asparagus – skewer and put on top part of the grill

Cherry Tomatoes – skewer

Onions – use large slices or wedges not cut through

Corn – leave in husk

Tofu – extra firm

Fruit – top grilled fruit with brown sugar and maple sugar

Romaine lettuce – grill lettuce and bread for deconstructed Caesar salad
