Guy’s Guide to Lean Grilling Featuring “Ultimate Grill-Master” Tips from Whole Foods Market®

Written by admin   // May 21, 2012   // 0 Comments

Grilling brings us back to the primitive origins of cuisine and provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, friends and fine food all at once. In our busy, modern lives, grilling celebrates the delightful simplicity and naturally bold flavors that whole food provides, and allows us to explore flavors of the world without leaving our own backyards.
Summertime means grilling time and Whole Foods Market has everything guys need to fire it up, flip it over and impress their crew – from juicy steaks to succulent shrimp, and all the produce they can skewer. What’s more, we’ll help to keep the “lean” in lean, mean grilling machine. Here’s how:

· Meet better meat: All of Whole Foods Market’s meat comes from animals raised on a strict vegetarian diet without antibiotics or added hormones*, so you get delicious meat – and nothing but the meat – every time. Plus, all of our beef, chicken and pork suppliers have been rated by the 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating™ system so you know just how the animals were raised for the meat you’re buying.
o Kabobs and Health Starts Here™ skewers: the highest-quality beef or chicken meets the freshest peppers and onions so you can get your veggies too. For the health-conscious and meat purists, four-ounce beef and chicken skewers are seasoned without oils or added salt.
o Love the links: Try Spinach and Feta chicken sausages to lighten the load on your grill. Or, go with beer brats for a crowd-pleasing favorite. Ask your local Whole Foods Market butcher for other options; each store makes their links in house.
o This burger’s a bit wild: Pick up spicy, house-made Cowboy Burgers – loaded with jalapenos, cheddar cheese and cilantro mixed in with pure ground beef.
o This burger’s no turkey: Whole Foods Market’s gourmet turkey burgers are lean and flavorful. Or, if lean beef is the order of the day, discover the greatness of grass-fed with super-lean (90/10) grass-fed beef burgers.
o Maximum steak for the money: Oftentimes, the leaner cuts can also come at the best values. Our trained butchers recommend boneless sirloin, Flat Iron steak or skirt steak for lean and luscious value options you can really sink your teeth into.
· Pick up some produce: Fruits and vegetables explode with flavor when you throw ‘em on the grill. Not only will you feel good about the smart food choice, but if you select Whole Trade Guarantee™ picks like pineapples, mangos and bell peppers, you can feel confident that the growers who brought them to your plate enjoy better wages and working conditions, and use farming practices that protect the planet. Try Grilled Pineapple and Mango with Balsamic Glaze or Grilled Sirloin and Mixed Peppers.
· When I Sea Food I Eat It: Shrimp, crab and steaky fish like tuna and halibut are great for grilling. Shrimp and mango skewers can be a fresh and flavorful hit for a barbecue, and halibut tacos are light and easy (especially when you grill the tortilla, too). Plus, this year, Whole Foods Market became the first national retailer to stop selling red-rated wild seafood, so you know the seafood you’re enjoying was caught in a sustainable way from a populous species. Whole Foods Market uses Monterey Bay Aquarium’s or Blue Ocean Institute’s color-coded ratings to help shoppers make more informed choices at the seafood counter.
