BBQ Your Way to Healthier Eating…


Posted by Dr. Scott Wilson | 13-Jun-2014

Recently, we recommended the Gourmet Nutrition cookbook from Dr. John Berardi and Precision Nutrition. We’ve had great feedback from patients who enjoyed the information so much that many actually bought the book. This month, we’ve got another great tip from the folks at Precision Nutrition. To help keep our metabolism up, it’s recommend that we eat every 2-3 hours we’re awake. However, while bringing fruits and veggies to work is easy enough for most of us, the preparation required for ensuring you have the necessary protein in each of those meals or snacks can be challenging.
 

LEVERAGE YOUR WEEKEND BBQ:
One very effective solution that makes preparing for the coming week that much easier is leveraging your weekend BBQ. While preparing your meal for that day/evening, make a habit of preparing some additional items on the other side of the grill for the rest of the week. For example, while preparing salmon steaks on one side of the grill, you could also prepare some chicken breasts and turkey sausages on the other side for later in the week.
 

HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU PREPARE?
For one person, grilling a single whole chicken breast and five turkey sausages is enough to give you the protein you need for meals from Monday through to Friday afternoon and makes for a very easy way to keep your protein intake consistent through the week.
 

As you know, healthy eating is one of the keys to getting and staying healthier. If you missed last month’s link for ordering your own copy of Precision Nutrition, please click here. Of course, if you or someone you know would like some help with taking a more proactive approach to getting a staying healthier, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
