Did you make a New Year’s resolution to eat better? Do you like to grill? If so, you’re in luck!
In this article, we look at how you can make healthy meals on the Big Green Egg.
A New Season for Healthy Eating
Many people start thinking about healthy eating at the beginning of a new season or a new year.
Our favorite way to eat healthy all year long is to cook on our Big Green Egg. It’s unbelievably easy to cook fresh, delicious, and healthy food outside.
Here are a few more ways to make healthy eating a part of your everyday life.
Cook at Home
One of the best ways to make sure you’re eating healthier is to prepare and cook your meals at home. This means using fresh or whole ingredients and ditching processed foods.
Combine protein and vegetables, grill fruit for dessert, and get creative.
Not only will you save money cooking at home more often, but you will know exactly what is in what you’re eating. Say goodbye to fillers, fat, and additives.
Eat Real Food
Real food is healthy food. This means great-tasting, delicious food. When you cook on the Big Green Egg, you get full flavor cooking over live coals from pure, all-natural carbonized hardwood.
Your food is gently smoked and grilled to perfection.
By cooking with real food, you avoid fattening sauces, extra salt, carb overload, and fats.
Eat Your Veggies
Nearly everyone thinks of hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, and pork when they think of grilling.
But all BGE owners know that you can cook so much more on the EGG. You can smoke, roast, and grill vegetables, infusing them with smoky flavor and caramelizing them for extra goodness.
We love grilling veggies (and fruit, too) with just a little bit of seasoning, a light splash of olive oil, a little bit of lemon, and maybe some added heat!
You can then use your grilled veggies with high-protein grains for a bowl or meatless dinner. You can even throw your grilled veggies into a salad!
