Firing up the grill is a great way to celebrate the summer with family and friends. Grilling is one of the simplest ways to cook, and according to registered dietitian nutritionist and Spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Sarah Krieger, the latest grilling trend is keeping it healthy – grilling nutritious and flavorful food with cooking techniques to reduce your risk of food poisoning. Food safety is key to keeping your friends and family safe from food poisoning and if you have diabetes you are at a higher risk for developing serious illness from food poisoning.
Food Safety At the Grill
Krieger says “Warm weather brings out not only the grills, but also bacteria –which multiply in food faster in warm weather and can cause food poisoning.”
