If you’re wondering what to grill tonight, you’re not alone. Although we’re quickly approaching the beginning of fall, there’s still plenty of time to fire up the grill and enjoy something new. Sure, the sun might be setting just a little bit earlier and you might notice a chill on the wind that wasn’t there a few short days ago, but it’s worth it to turn on an outside light and let the fire of the grill keep you warm.
For many, making healthy grilled meals is important. Although summer is filled with burgers and brats, it’s also filled with plenty of outdoor activities that help people to stay healthy. That means that quite a few people start seeking out healthy options this time of year because they know they won’t be quite as active as they were in the summer.
Not to worry, friends and neighbors, because the team at Mighty Flame Propane Cylinder Exchange is here to take a look at this very topic. If healthy grilling is important to you, we’d love to help make sure you get it right. Keep reading to learn more!
The Key Components of Healthy Grilling
So what do you need to enjoy a healthy meal cooked over the warm heat of your propane grill? It’s simple really. Although different people follow different diets, many of them will agree that you should be getting a good amount of protein along with some fresh vegetables. Sure, different diets will call for different tweaks on this idea, but at the end of the day we believe that that little bit of information is all you need to get started making something that’s good for you.
Unfortunately it’s a little bit more complicated than that. The truth is that throwing some boneless, skinless chicken breasts on the grill with a handful of broccoli tends to be…let’s just call it bland. And even worse is the fact that many people associate the words healthy with food that doesn’t taste very good.
While it’s true that food that’s not very good for you often tastes the best, fortunately the opposite doesn’t hold to be true as well. All it takes is a bit of experimentation to get it all just right.
Okay…So How Do You Get It Right?
When you’re cooking healthy foods one of the keys is to make sure to season things properly. You’d be amazed at how much of a difference a teaspoon of cayenne pepper can make. Now we’re not saying that cayenne pepper should be your new go-to seasoning (unless you want it to be, of course). Instead all we’re saying is that it pays to try out new seasonings. Never had lemon pepper? Sprinkle a bit on your meal the next time you make grilled fish! Don’t know what cumin actually tastes like? Look up some recipes, read up, and figure out how you can use it.
As they say, variety is the spice of life, and in this case spices are the spice of life too. So I guess what we’re saying here is to use more spices. Things like salsa and hot sauce can come in handy as well, and ginger, parsley, rosemary, and the like can add new dimensions to what might otherwise come across as boring. You can even add a dash of lime juice for a unique twist on an old favorite. Your grocery store might even sell special blends of spices, but our advice is to make sure they’re not just packed with salt and pepper.
