Marinades May be Cancer Reducing
Trim the skin off chicken to reduce fat intake, but don't forget to compensate for the lack of juiciness with marinade. As an added bonus, marinades not only taste good, but they may help make your BBQ safer. A recent study done at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California discovered that simple marinades may actually reduce carcinogenic compounds. Make a simple marinade with low calorie and low sugar ingredients, such as 1 tbsp. olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic, lemon juice and natural herbs. The Journal of Food Science published a study that found rosemary, specifically, decreased the formation of toxins when used in grilled meats.
