Barbecue is one of the most popular hobbies in summer. In keeping with the current focus on nutrition, the health service “Tut gut!” expands its digital cooking magazine with four new videos on the topic “Healthy.Grilled”. For example, veggie fire stains or roasted stone fruits with goat cream cheese are served.
“There doesn’t always have to be sausages or marinated chops,” says nutrition expert Irene Öllinger – and further: “Chicken or fish is more than just a suitable alternative. Mushrooms, potatoes, peppers or pumpkins are a balanced addition to side dishes. But exclusively vegetarian roasted dishes are also very much in vogue. “
