Get Grilling

Did you know that when you grill vegetables, they take on a whole new variety of health benefits? That’s right. In fact, vegetables release different key nutrients after being fired up on the grill versus on a stove or in the oven. Here are some of the main benefits to grilling your veggies:

The enhanced flavors– not only will your vegetables be more nutritious, they will take on a whole new level of flavor. The heat from the barbeque will bring out the smoky flavors, while the caramelization will help enhance the natural sweetness in your veggies.

They retain their nutrients– vegetables tend to lose their nutritional value as they are cooked. Grilling, on the other hand, has the opposite effect. Vegetables will actually hold on to their vitamins and minerals the best during this cooking process. So if you prefer eating your vegetables cooked, grilling is your best bet.

They have increased nutritional value– it may come as a pleasant surprise to know that certain vegetables have a greater nutritional value after being grilled. Nutritionists have found that certain vitamins and minerals are harder to break down in the body. Heating them up actually allows for the nutrients to be better absorbed, in turn, making them better for you.

They help you lose weight- one of the greatest benefits for those who are trying to lose weight is that grilling vegetables can help aid weight loss! Grilling doesn’t require any added oils or dressings, making it one of the cleanest ways to eat cooked veggies.

 

Almost any vegetable can be grilled- here are a few examples of some of the vegetables that are great on the grill:

 

  • Zucchini
  • Onions
  • Bell Peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Eggplant
  • Mushrooms
  • Asparagus

The list goes on!
