Wellness Tip of the Week: Have a healthier cookout

Event Type(s): Health

For many people, the summer means grilling season. It's a time to get out of the kitchen, and exchange pots and pans for picnic plates. Keep your summer grilling healthy and safe by cleaning the grill before and after each use, being wise about fire safety, keeping your food securely stored and insulated, and washing your hands. Try to spice up the old hot dog/ hamburger routine by putting more vegetables and lean meats on the grill. Have a happy, healthy July 4th celebration.
