RECIPE TIPS
HEALTHY BENEFITS

Using fresh ingredients, leaner cuts of meat and choosing to grill or roast instead of fry makes homemade ‘takeaways’ lower in saturated fats, salt and sugar. Cooking from fresh also reduces your intake of additives and preservatives while helping to retain much of the food’s nutritional content.

HEALTHY GRILLING

Grilling on a wire rack is the healthiest way to cook burgers. You won’t need any extra oil and any fat from the meat can drip away into the tray below.
