Pirate Brands, maker of Pirate’s Booty and other healthy baked snacks is always working hard to come up with healthy yet delicious treats to satisfy your craving for salty stuff. Their products go great at barbeques and they’ve kindly sent over some tips for keeping all of the dishes which surround your Pirate’s Booty healthy too. This is actually the way I grill out, so I thought I’d pass them along!
- Go Lean, or go home. Instead of a fatty New York strip steak or pork chop, select lean meats like chicken (sans the skin), top sirloin or pork tenderloin. Grill up burgers using lean ground turkey or bison. Fish is also delish on the barbie! For meatless meals try veggie burgers or Portobello mushrooms.
- Make sure to veg out. Grilling veggies is not only healthy, but the process really brings out the natural flavors and juices. Some great grilled vegetables include corn, zucchini, eggplant and bell peppers. Shish kabobs are always a hit as they’re fun to make and eat with the family!
