Introduction

It’s no secret that making deliberately healthy food choices day after day has a positive impact on your health and well-being. Outdoor grilling, increasingly a year-round endeavor, can bring a variety of wonderful flavors to a broad spectrum of healthful food options. This booklet explains why—and how—to add more nutrient-rich food to your diet, like lean meats, fresh fish, vegetables, and fruit.

Why do your food choices matter? Many common health problems such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, and certain cancers have a strong link to poor diet. Consuming nutrient-rich foods that provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats are just as important for optimal health as is limiting saturated and trans fat, added sugars, and salt. So make it a point, not only to choose lean meats, but to grill more fish, vegetables, and fruit, too.

Portions also matter. Whether moderating protein amounts or heaping on the vegetables, an appropriate caloric intake combined with regular physical activity is the most effective way to stay at a healthy weight over a lifetime. So to help you demystify the elusive energy balance equation, we’ve made some portion suggestions as well.

When you can, try to work locally grown foods into your diet. Local vegetables and fruit are usually harvested within a day or so of the time they’re purchased by consumers—therefore they are richer in nutrients and flavors that can decline drastically with the passage of time. Also, this produce is less likely to contain waxes or fungicides that supermarket chains may use to extend the delivery life of the product. Buying locally also helps support local farmers, contributes to your community both ecologically and economically, and creates demand for the kind of food you, your family, and your neighbors want to eat.
