All my Southern cooking and eating finally caught up with me. My doctor told me straight up that I'd have to eat healthier, since my cholesterol was high and my tri levels were absolutely awful.
On the plus side, grilling is healthy. Now I'm not going to be able to eat those rib eye steaks every night, but chicken and fish are wonderful on the grill as are vegetables.
Many of the grill sauces are also fine. Much better healthwise than the creamy dressings with mayonnaise.
For anyone dealing with health issues that require low fat cooking, I'd say - Buy a grill. The food is so good with the smoke flavor that you won't feel like you're eating special diet foods.
Even though it's winter now, we still love to grill. I say that we're members of the Polar Bear Barbecue Club. Chicken and fish grill up so fast, that it's not bad being out in the cold long enough to have a special grilled meal.
