Folks ready to fire up their outdoor grills face a deadly choice of inflicting food poisoning or cancer on family and friends: food poisoning by E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, if they undercook the meat; cancer, if they heat meat to the point of creating cancer-causing compounds.
Luckily, food manufacturers and processors have met this challenge head-on by developing a variety of healthful, delicious, and convenient, un-chicken, veggie burgers, and soy dogs. And, they are available in the frozen food section at most supermarkets and natural food stores everywhere. Check out the array of alternative cheese and mayonnaise substitutes, delicious and cholesterol-free, in the refrigerated section, too.
This summer offers a superb opportunity to consign meat to a bad memory and make new memories by sharing wholesome veggie options that are better for you and your family and friends.
