The good news is that in today’s post, we have a few of the best grilling ideas for when you want to eat something that’s healthy. There’s something for everyone here, so if you’ve been searching for tips on how to do a bit of healthy grilling, today’s blog is for you. Keep reading to learn more!
A Few of Our Favorite Healthy Grilled Meals
Because the definition of what’s healthy varies from person to person, today’s post will present a few recipes that we enjoy, but if they don’t suit your needs, feel free to use them as general guidelines, switching things up as you see fit. It certainly won’t hurt our feelings!
Having said that, the recipes below will seek to offer balance of healthy fats, protein, fruits, and vegetables, while keeping the carbohydrates and processed sugars to a minimum. At the end of the day, we think that it’s hard to go wrong with meats, veggies, and fruits, so that’s what we’ll be focusing on. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the recipes we’ve chosen.
Pineapple Bun Burgers
This recipe for pineapple bun burgers from Delish is admittedly a bit high in sugar thanks to the pineapple, but at the end of the day, we believe it’s much better to get some sugar from a fruit than it is to dig into a pint of ice cream. If you already enjoy pineapples on your burger, then this one is going to be right up your alley.
The addition of Worcestershire sauce to the beef patties an interesting one, but when you combine its savoriness with the sweetness of the pineapple, you’ll find that it’s a great combination. You could even add guacamole or slices of cooked bacon for some more healthy(ish) fats, but either way, the end result is delicious and close enough to an unhealthy meal that it’s a great way to ease yourself into healthier eating.
Honey Soy Grilled Salmon with Edamame
Food Network is a great resource for all kinds of recipes from some of the most creative and talented chefs around. This recipe for honey soy grilled salmon with edamame is certainly no exception! In fact, eating healthy has never tasted quite so good thanks to this recipe’s benefits. As the recipe itself notes, “the natural richness of salmon and it’s high amount of Omega-3’s makes it a great choice for a healthy meal that doesn’t need much added fat” because “by stuffing a mixture of fresh herbs into the fillets, through a pocket, the fish is infused with bright flavors.”
We couldn’t agree more. Fish is always a great option for those who are trying to eat healthy, but it can be hard to find a recipe that actually sounds good. After all, eating under-seasoned fish is always a bit of a dull experience. The little bit of honey, ginger, sesame seeds, low-sodium soy sauce, and fresh lime juice help to combat that perfectly and we think you’ll find a regular spot for this recipe in your grilling rotation.
Grilled Steak with Green Beans, Tomatoes, and Chimichurri Sauce
The final recipe we’d like to share is also from our friends at Food Network who bring us an amazing combination of flavors in the form of grilled steak with green beans, tomatoes, and chimichurri sauce. One reviewer notes that the recipe “has become one of my family’s favorite meals” [because] “it’s easy to make and so full of flavor.” Another review states that the person trying the recipe has “literally never grilled before” but that it’s the “best thing” that person has ever cooked. That’s pretty high praise!
In a total of about a half hour between prep time and cook time, the end result is a really wonderful meal that is amazing. In fact, it’s so great that you’ll completely forget that you made this meal in an effort to eat healthier. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
