PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Nothing says summer more than firing up the grill for a backyard barbeque; but hot dogs and hamburgers aren’t exactly the healthiest dietary option. Fortunately, Pittsburgh Today Live’s wellness contributor, Dr. Will Clower, has some easy grilling recipes to help out — from pizza and marinades to more.

Mediterranean Wellness: Health Grilling Recipes
By Dr. Will Clower

Pizza On The Grill: A wonderful, out-doorsy take on this quintessential Italian classic, this recipe allows you to dress your grilled pizza any way you like, for your own tastes. Once you do this a couple of times, you’ll say Grazie!!

Cancer Reducing Marinade: This cancer reducer is sweet and spicy, with mustard giving the incredibly healthy kick to this basic sauce. A bonus aspect of this combination is that, once you get this marinade spiced exactly as you want it, you can slather it on anything at all. This recipe is the gift that keeps on giving!!

Cancer Reducing Marinade: For an oriental take on your marinade, you might want to throw your chicken breasts or pork loin in a baggie early in the morning … go to work … and then when you come home, that marinade will have completed an entire day of work – pumping up the flavor of your food.

Tenderloin with Hobo Packets: I love this recipe, because the “cooking time” is mostly spent at the grill with your friends and some form of afternoon thirst quencher, telling stories and turning your Hobo Packets once in a while.
