Flavorful Fall Marinade (Perfect for Tailgating) #SundaySupper

Roll TideTailgating, we LOVE it! It’s all about food, fun and well there’s a football game involved!

One of my favorite and simplest Tailgate feasts starts with grilled meat or fish. Everything from chicken wings to fish or kabobs.  But, the older I get the more concerned I am about eating healthier. So I spoke with Dr. Raul Serrano about healthier ways to tailgate and a good marinade for #SundaySupper. 

Dr. Serrano explained that the problem when grilling meats are acrylamides, dangerous by-products that come from heating meats at high temperatures (frying or grilling).  There is an easy solution to this BBQ dilemma. To avoid the formation of acrylamides in meats:  Marinade meat before cooking to help prevent the formation of acrylamides (use a combination of olive oil, lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, and anti-cancer spices like tumeric and garlic), and do not char the meat. It is better to cook longer at lower temperatures, away from the direct flame.

The bottom line is you don’t have to sacrifice flavor to eat healthy. Here’s a great recipe for marinating meat, seafood or vegetables that Dr. Serrano shared from “The Cancer Killers” book

marinated chickenIngredients

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Let marinate for at least 30 minutes but the longer the better.  When using meats use grass fed beef or free-range chickens.
