Make Meat Healthier with This Cooking Trick

Firing up the grill this weekend? Keep your choice meats on the healthy side with this cooking philosophy: low and slow.

Cooking meat at a lower temperature is better for your health. It may take a little longer, but the reward is fewer body-aging by-products.

Douse the Flames
When cooked at high heat, meat proteins can form cell-damaging, inflammation-promoting oxidants. And getting too much of these oxidants, called advanced glycation end products (AGEs), may actually shorten life span, according to early-stage animal studies. Researchers think certain aging genes may be turned off or on in the absence or presence of these AGEs. Look younger and feel better each passing year with this little trick.

Better Barbecue
Regardless of how you cook, make sure you practice food-safety habits, and heat meat to the right internal temperature. Then plan a tasty, healthy, easy meal with one of these quick barbecue recipes from RealAge.
