With Memorial Day approaching, we’re all looking forward to getting outside with family and friends to enjoy barbecues. Although hamburgers, hot dogs, and potato salad are staples at these affairs, it’s important to keep an eye on the things you’re eating and make healthy choices when possible.
In general, try to stick to lean meats like poultry or fish, or substitute meat with colorful vegetables. For flavoring, use acid-based marinades like lemon or vinaigrettes instead of thick, sugary sauces.
There are many recipes out there that offer nutrient-dense versions of our favorite summer foods. Dana-Farber nutritionist Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, has narrowed down …
Last weekend, I tried a fairly new restaurant in Brookline – Gyu-Kaku – that had opened its first location in Mass. back in April 2013. Gyu-Kaku is a chain restaurant with over 700 locations worldwide and features Japanese Barbecue cuisine. In short, it’s indoor grilling. Customers can order raw, specially-marinated a la carte items from the menu and cook the food themselves – a fun concept and dining experience. The staff are helpful and will explain the process and cook time to newcomers. Besides barbecue, there are also various cooked appetizers, rice and noodle dishes that you can order. I …
basil from realsimple.com
One of the many fabulous summertime perks is having a lush, green garden. If you have a green-thumb then you’re probably eating home-grown veggies and enjoying beautiful flowers by the vase full. And, of course, one of the easiest and most commonly garden-grown treat, herbs!
Herbs add some serious flavor to food. Fresh basil adds a punch to pasta sauces and is unbelievably good on homemade pizza. Home-grown dill will have you eating coleslaw every night. And add fresh mint leaves to you’re iced tea, or simply chew on them to freshen breath!
If you’re an herb-lover then the Herb …
You might go to a mall and feel like you are home since the stores are mostly the same and malls are no longer as unique with local flavor as they once were, but food is different! Each location we visit brings its own flavor from restaurants to supermarkets! Visit a local supermarket and you will find brands you never heard of! Try a hot dog stand in Boston and it won’t be the same as if you were in Chicago or New York!
This past Sunday, the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine section had an article called Top Dog, which frank …
Part 1: Childhood memories!
Summer time for a season griller like me is time to indulge in foods like hot dogs and hamburgers more often than in the winter. I started to think about my journey with hot dogs where my love for hot dogs began and what my first memories of hot dogs were!
Growing up on Long Island, New York, my first memories of hot dogs were from the kosher delis I would go with my family. In the window you could gaze at the hot dogs cooking on one side and the knishes on the other side of the …
grilled meat from myrecipes.com
For this years July 4th cookout my Dad decided to make a pork roast. After he marinated the meat for a day, he cooked the pork shoulder for nine long hours on the grill over hickory-smoked wood chips until it reached peak tenderness. Personally, being a vegetarian, pork isn’t my cup of tea. But the process to prepare this dinner was pretty interesting, none the less.
Something that was as time consuming to prepare as that piece of pork should have incredible flavor. Over-cooking it would be a disaster and a huge waste of time.
And so, the importance …
grilled corn on the cob from myrecipes.com
When I think about summer cookouts I think pasta salad and corn on the cob. As a kid it was often my job to shuck the corn before tossing it into the steamer. Smothering on the butter and sprinkling on the salt made for the most delicious combination of sweet and savory. I hardly minded all the corn-hair that got stuck in my teeth.
Today, I tend to skip the butter and salt and just enjoy the au-natural sweetness of the corn itself. Maybe it’s the novelty of eating something with my hands that makes …
grilled pizza from chow.com
Summertime means bbq‘s in the back yard every night. So finding new things to throw on the grill is a must, because no matter how tasty the burgers and dogs might be you have to add some variety to the mix.
There are so many things you can grill up for dinner from bbq chicken to swordfish steaks to kabobs of peppers and eggplant. I’ve even heard of grilled watermelon as a substitute for a burger. But one of my favorite things to cook on the grill has to be pizza.
Grilled pizza takes practice. You can’t just do …
