Smart choices at the grill station

The grill … Scene of so many satisfying sizzling entrees. As delicious as these offerings are, the selection can be a little tricky to navigate if you’re trying to align with healthy dietary goals. We asked Jared Grandlienard, retail operations manager, Parkview Health, to walk us through the best options for this stop in the cafeteria, a similar establishment or the stovetop at home.

“It’s a common misconception that you can’t get anything healthy at the grill,” Jared said. At the Parkview Regional Medical Center cafeteria, diners can opt for a chicken breast, turkey burger, black bean burger or roasted potatoes for a sensible meal.

Add additional nutrients by piling the veggies high on top of your protein and adding a side of fresh vegetables or a side salad. Skip the French fries to avoid unwanted calories.
