Nutrition News: Protein For Older Adults
Q and A
Q: Are there health benefits to grilling?
A: Yes. Grilling allows excess fat to melt and drip off meats rather than being reabsorbed into the food, so you're likely to consume less fat. Grilling also decreases the need for sauces and seasonings that may contain extra salt because it gives a natural smoky flavor. More nutrients may also be retained because ingredients are cooked quickly on the grill. Grilling is also an invitation to spend time with family and friends outdoors. You can also put your favorite fruits and vegetables on the grill.
