A healthy braai

0

South Africans traditionally associate a braai with chops, wors, potato salad and grilled cheese-and-tomato sandwiches. But too much red meat and fatty side dishes can harm your health. It is, however, possible to change the braai menu and still have a fabulous occasion.

Take action:
Here are a few suggestions: have chicken or fish rather than red meat; prepare mielies on the cob and baked potatoes in foil over coals; have green and/or three-bean salads prepared with olive oil and Balsamic vinegar dressings as side dishes; remove all visible fat from red meat before cooking; and always select lean meat cuts.
