Protein-conscious eaters tend to enjoy barbecues year-round in other countries, but in the warm weather (on the very lucky few days we get it in this country) the BBQ often becomes a dinner mainstay. There is something special about eating outdoors, we have become a nation who love to do it on the odd occasions when the sun does shine. There is nothing to beat the irresistible smells of freshly cooked food on a barbecue, mix this with friends and family and its no wonder we drag the BBQ grill out at the first ray of sunshine.
I have good news for you, BBQ food can be very healthy and relatively low in calories as well as scrumptious. Grilling is the leanest way to cook and some of the fat in the meat will sizzle away. I frequently can be heard telling my clients that barbecues are a great way to eat out without sabotaging your fat loss goals.
Here are some simple ideas based on foods that can be bought in almost any local shop in the country. These ideas are protein packed and full of antioxidants and great for anyones fitness and nutrition goals.
