A Healthy Barbecue?

Published : Monday, May 18, 2009 | 3:24 PM

A fun weekend barbecue is a great way to enjoy nice weather, spend time with friends and family, and just relax.  But in some cases, a barbecue can turn into an unhealthy meal.  Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, coleslaw, potato salad, and baked beans, all delicious, but not quite the healthiest choices.

For people who are concerned with eating a well-balanced diet,  Grassroots Natural Market and Kitchen has many options and ways to make a barbecue nutritious and healthy.

Stock up on items like: fresh organic fruits and vegetables, naturally raised turkey or chicken, whole wheat tortillas or buns, homemade salad dressing, apple walnut muffins, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and fat free frozen yogurt. A barbecue with any of these fixings will most definitely be a popular one, and to top it off, it will be a barbecue that is good for you.

Grassroots Market makes it a priority to be up to date with the latest in health issues, so that they can help their customers eat well and live a lifestyle that is beneficial to their well-being.

If you’re looking for a quick bite, try the Kitchen at Grassroots.  The Kitchen menu has everything from organic juices, to burritos, to chili, to healthy burgers.  But is there really such a thing as a healthy burger?  At Grassroots, their 1/2 pound chicken burger is presented on a whole grain bun and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts, and onions.  The chicken is naturally raised and has no hormones or antibiotics.  They even have a 1/4 pound Veggie Burger.  So it appears to be true, a healthy burger does exist!

Who would have ever thought that a barbecue or a burger could actually be healthy?  Grassroots Natural Market has proven that it’s possible.  For your next grocery shopping trip, head to Grassroots, located at 119 Fair Oaks Ave. in South Pasadena.  Call (626) 799-0156.
