Healthy BBQ Kit
The humble barbeque, it’s one of Australia’s favourite pastimes. The traditional barbeque made up of sausages, onion, white bread and tomato sauce isn’t doing our health any favours, full of saturated fat and salt, and low in fruits and vegetables. With a few small changes, the barbeque can be a healthy and tasty cooking method. We have developed some resources to help you along the way, including the Healthy BBQ Kit booklet, Healthy Butcher menu, quantity guide and toolkit including all the barbequing essentials. We acknowledge the OPAL program for their development of the original Healthy BBQ resource.
Small changes make a big impact!
Here are our top tips to a Healthy BBQ:
1. Don’t chew the fat
Choose lean meats like chicken breast, steaks (with fat trimmed) and lean chicken kebabs. Check out the Meat Hub’s Nutrition Australia approved healthy BBQ range here, including all of your favourites like lean sausages, chicken and beef burgers and skewers!
2. You can make friends with salad!
Add vegetables and salad to the menu, grilled onion, zucchini, capsicum and mushrooms are all delish off the hotplate. Grilled corn is a favourite especially with the kids! Or why not try whipping up your own coleslaw (with low fat dressing) to slap on a burger. Yum!
3. Add grain power!
Choose high fibre varieties of bread like wholegrain and wholemeal breads, rolls or wraps!
4. Just add H20
Have water available as the drink of choice, especially during the hot summer months. It is the ultimate thirst quencher!
