Research on the benefits of olive oil-salads always go great with grilled food
such as Olive Oil, Mediterranean Diet and Diabetes Mellitus,Scientific Basis for Olive Oil, Mediterranean Diet and Cancer Prevention,Olive Oil and the Gastrointestinal Tract ,Olive Oil, Monounsaturated Fatty Acids and LDL Oxidation - latest scientific evidence
Make certain you preheat the grill-you might want to wait until the red light goes off
if you use garlic cloves, best to crush them and wait ten minutes-research study showed raw garlic best for anti cancer properties, next leaving them for ten minutes
if you use beans,(not lentils or split pea), putting them in boiling water for three to five minutes and then letting them soak for two to four hours makes them easier to digest and breaks down the complex sugars

"Information on mercury levels in fish (2002 May 29) Mercury continues to be an issue of interest to food regulators and consumers. The purpose of this notice is to: advise Canadians to limit consumption of shark, swordfish and fresh and frozen tuna, to one meal per week. Pregnant women, women of child-bearing age and young children should eat no more than one meal per month; and reiterate advice previously issued by Health Canada based on the potential exposure to mercury that can occur through eating these species over a lifetime"
tart cherries
research is being conducted as to cancer fighting and pain fighting properties of tart cherries-problem is that cooking tart cherries at high temperatures might diminish the beneficial properties
from American Institute of Cancer Research

this is a quote from the AICR"Marinate. Research shows that marinating meats can prevent the formation of HCAs by as much as 90 percent. These effects have even been observed in meats marinated for only 10 D 20 minutes. Health experts recommend an oil-free marinade with a strong acidic ingredient like lemon juice or vinegar. "HCA stands for heterocyclic amines
the article also mentions polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)-another carcinogenic substance "when fat drips into the fire, the smoke and flames that rise up onto the food-this creates PAH-

in general-putting a little vinegar on fish helps keep moisture in but with George Foreman Grill-cooks so quickly not necessary
rubbing Kosher salt on chicken, helps keep chicken moister-also helps kill some bacteria
slicing meat when slightly frozen helps to cut thinner slices
for high fiber vegetables such as yams, broccoli, asparagus, brussel sprouts and possibly stringbeans, etc versus mushrooms,onions,or thinly slicked vegetables- if you first steam them-ie buy double pot steamers or steaming tray you can put in any pot-then when you grill them-they are done in no time

  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • < 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon grated root ginger
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar-
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • add all ingredients to a pan and boil-watching constantly until it thickens-use after fish is grilled..
  • i millet patties and the grill-1/3 of the world eats millet-gluten free-high in proteins for a grain and vitamins-also supposedly soothing for the stomach-i soaked it in cold water for 10 minutes to help reduce cooking time-but still had to boil it for about 25 minutes-then minced some garlic and ginger and sauteed that with a little olive oil on the grill-then threw on some fresh spinach, celery, peppers and onions-for a about three or four minutes-then mixed in the millet-next time i am going to add chopped nuts-millet is bland-if you want to try to loose weight-you might want to start eating millet three times a day-make a big pot and when it is almost cooked-throw in celery and onions-let them steam-I add olive oil,garlic and lemon-and then sprinkle some Celtic salt on it-at least in my experience-acidity in the stomach creates a need to eat-millet appears to neutralize the acidity and cuts down the urge to eat


  • not as speedy but broccoli patties-since fiber vegetables take longer on grill-I first steam the broccoli for a few minutes- if I am not lazy-I then chop it in food processor-otherwise just chop it into smaller pieces in the pan-(flatter cooks faster on the grill and prevents worry re charring)Put some olive oil on grill and heat some garlic cloves-then while grill getting hot-throw in an egg or two to the broccoli-add some soy sauce-then throw in bread crumbs-and then make flattish patties-put the patties on the grill-squeeze lemon and put butter on top-and grill the patties until they are crisp-you can substitute zucchini or whatever vegetable you like-I check every few minutes until the breadcrumbs look crispy

  • My friend from Alaska M.P sent me this one..

Stir in cream and simmer to thicken, about 5 minutes. Add cooked chicken and cilantro... serve over jasmine rice.... a dish hammy will beg for! heheheh...

    .

  • Eggplant-high in potassium-low in calories-good for fiber-supposedly shiny skin is the freshest-I slice it-brush with olive oil-(I sometimes just soak some garlic cloves in the olive oil)-if you want you can also bread it-ie breadcrumbs with an egg to hold it together(I use whole eggs although you can use egg white beaten--grill it for a few minutes-then you can add cheese-mozarella or fontina or you can even use tofu mozarella-if you want you can throw on tomato sauce or else cook the tomato sauce separately and pour it over the grilled eggplant-or you can just use the eggplant with cheese and throw on some basil leaves and red peppers or whatever and make a sandwich

  • Vegetables grilled with honey sauce-you can use cooked little potatoes,sliced zucchini,peppers,onions,carrots,-mince a garlic clove, add 1/4 cup of honey and a few tablespoons of dry white wine or sherry,salt and pepper- add the vegetables to the mixture and grill-if you have a favorite herb you can add that also..tailor it to your own taste-(be sure to do a fast clean up afterwards with a wet paper towel..

    grill your favorite vegetables-again I usually first put some olive oil on grill-then grill some garlic cloves-next add the vegetables that take the longest-use mushrooms,onions,peppers,zucchini-boil some sphagetti-and you can use the grilled vegetables as topping-add some grated cheese on top-(I also add butter-you have a primavera pasta-


  • makes bacon healthier-cook bacon first-make sure grill hot-then put some butter if you don't care about calories on two slices of bread-put some cheese in and tomato slice and the bacon-what a sandwich-

  • use Italian bread-proscuitto,fresh basil and tomatoes and cheese..
    beat up an egg,dip Italian bread or whatever you have put butter on outside..and cheese and ham or whatever meat inside and George it!
    Apricot-Ginger Sauce

    2 tablespoons apricot juice
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
    4 cups diced apricots
    1 tablespoon lemon juice-or lime juice
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 tablespoon minced candied ginger
    great with chicken strips, pork strips or shrimp etc...you can use mixture of apricots peaches, pears or your favorite fruit...if you use kiwi ..don't add the lemon or lime juice...



    Hot Peanut Sauce for beef strips or chicken strips or shrimp
    2 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    2 tablespoons sesame oil
    1 tablespoon ginger root, grated 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
    2 red hot chili peppers, chopped
    2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1/3 cup water
    double or triple the recipe for more sauce and more hot chilis to make it as hot as you want or less chili peppers..experiment...til you find the right taste for you..remember grilled bananas and shrimp are simple awesome...you can also add ingredients such as coriander..lime or lemon juice or stock instead of plain water...did you know that hot chilis and cayenne pepper release endomorphins..the same hormones that are released and which make you feel so good after intense exercise...

  • you know you can grill fruit on the George Foreman Grill--
  • buy green bananas-grill them until skin turns black-then remove peels and sprinkle with nuts,whip cream,sour cream,ricotta cheese or creme fraiche or just powdered confectionary sugar

    slice the fruit-ie peaches,nectarines,plums,apples
    grill them for a few minutes
    make a glaze with a few teaspoons of powdered sugar,some lemon zest and lemon juice-might add cinamon if you use apples
    baste the fruit and grill for a few more minutes
    grill the cake
    serve with berries on top and added touch of powdered sugar-whip cream too if you want

  • pineapple-fresh or canned-sliced-brush on rum,butter,a bit of brown sugar
  • apples-again slice -brown sugar,cinnamon,and butter-or experiment-try some maple syrup instead of brown sugar
  • oranges-butter-usually oranges sweet enough to not need extra sugar-
  • even peaches,apricots or strawberries-you might just want to add some butter to grill them

  • grilled tofu-buy extra firm, drain it first and then leave it for a couple of hours-then marinade it in your favorite marinade for at least an hour-some marinade it and then put in plastic bag and freeze it and then later thaw it-put some olive oil on the grill-there you go
    croutons-better than buying ready made with all the preservatives besides the high cost for stale bread!- cut bread-preferably a baguette-sliced thin-great also for dips-or traditional -french or Italian into 1 inch cubes-mix if you like cheese-if you don't like cheese skip it-about 1/4 grated cheese-Parmesan etc-3/4 cup melted butter,1 crushed clove of garlic-I always like cayenne pepper-add a bit of salt-then pour the mixture over the dry cubes and grill
    I do make garlic bread on the grill-heat the grill-chop up fresh garlic and grill it for a few minutes-again I use olive oil -then I put sliced Italian bread on hot grill-I also add butter dabs:-(- to be really wicked-sprinkle Parmesan cheese or melt some Mozarella,brie or whatever
    Eggs-yes I have made scrambled eggs on the grill-I cheat-I prop up the grill so it doesn't slope-hopefully that is alright-yes I have made frittatas-beat the eggs-heat the grill- add olive oil and first cook what the ingredients of the frittata would be-ie artichokes,mushrooms,and swiss cheese;tomato,ham or procuitto,basil,and mozarella;julienned zucchini,tomatoes,peppers,cheese,onions,garlic;-then I slowly pour the beaten eggs(I add a bit of milk to the egg batter-but you can use water- on the mixture with the grill propped up-grill for a few minutes until it looks as if the eggs are done

    Hamburgs with oatmeal filler-since I have read how great oatmeal is for lowering bad cholestrol and since I have read how it helps detox the body-I started mixing 1 part oatmeal to three parts hamburg-then I add seasoning-tomato paste,garlic,sometimes diced potatoes,sometimes diced onions etc and then grill it

  • drop cookies..the grill cooks them up so quickly-either buy the ready made dough or else take your favorite recipes and instead of baking them, just George them! (ps I use the grill a lot because I also don't usually have to worry about watching it-it usually shuts off..
    after reading that ginger is great for nausea-motion sickness(great to take on a trip if you little ones get carsick) and black strap molasses is high in calcium(great if you are afraid of bone loss), I decided to try to make ginger snap cookies on the grill. I took black strap molasses..almost 1/4 cup, egg, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 1/2 of flour, cinnamon,ginger,cloves, and all spice plus 1/4 stick of butter.. put the butter and sugar in food processor(or just mix it by hand, then add the egg and spices and then the flour..dropped the batter on the hot foreman grill from start to finish-maybe 12 minutes-you may also want to add raisins and nuts-both high in boron and again possibly great for bone loss,arthritis, and maybe even tooth health.

  • the other day I made a messy looking pumpkin pastry using some sheets of Apollo Phyllo Dough-i used butter,organic pumpkin filling,cinnamon and some brown sugar- it was delicious but aesthetically non pleasing..I plan to try it now with fresh apples, raisins,walnuts,brown sugar and cinammon-if your family isn't fussy about "looks"-speedy way to make a delicious dessert-phyllo recipes from Apollo-there are recipes at that site plus free phyllo recipe cookbook with shipping charges

I haven't tried to see how it will taste with cheese yet-
    Indian chickpea flour also great for unusual batter for vegetables

    Francesca's Suggestions-thank you Francesca
    Twinkie and Amanthe in background
    Here is Twinkie who also loves the grill!
    . Ever since I purchased it a couple of years ago - I swear through my enthusiasm have sold thousands of them for George. My oven element went out about a year ago - I haven't bothered to fix it. I thought I'd mention a few things that I do that I haven't seen mentioned on your site. I am a great Greek food fan.
    more sandwich ideas

    I put on swiss, spinach, red onion, meats, sometimes chutney if it is poultry or lamb sometimes put on sundried tomatoes and other stuff like cilantro. Sometimes lamb and hummus and cilantro and cheese

  • I cook lamb on the Foreman and heat the middle eastern flat bread on the grill in the juices. I then fill the bread with the lamb, raw spinach, tomato, and top with tazikki (sp?) sauce. You know, the yogurt/cucumber sauce. It is fabulous and I don't even like yogurt.
    I also take frozen french fries or those long flat tater tot things and grill them. Then when they are crisp, I squeeze lemon juice on them and sprinkle with dill and garlic. Yum.
    Cook asparagas with garlic and drizzle sesame oil at the end
    I also do an avocado thing where I cut the avocado lengthwise and remove the pit. Then lay the two pieces down on the grill skin side down. Fill the declevity with shrimp salad, crab salad or chicken salad. I grill them and at the last minute, top with cheese. They are fabulous!!!!! (Avocado is awesome cooked and I love grilled avocado sandwiches).
    I do a chicken thing with pounded boneless breasts. I stuff them with creamcheese mixed with lots of chopped green onion and tons of garlic. I sometime wrap them with bacon. Served with rice and salad. The sauce is on the inside and very creamy.
    I love asparagus on the grill. I usually partially skin part of the lower stalk. I alternate their direction, setting them sort of "head to tail". I use lots of spice on them and then squeeze lemon juice on at the end.
    I make the grilled sandwiches like the fancy places do. I use olive oil on the grill. I use a bread like focacia for sandwiches. I put in cheeses, spinach, meat, fresh herbs, etc.
    I love to reheat mashed potato or mashed sweet potato on the grill. I cook it until it is quite crisp. I like to add herbs, onions, mushrooms, whatever to the potatoes. Even cheese on the inside of the pattie.
    I often cook bananas on the grill with butter, brown sugar, nuts and liqueur and serve with icecream. Works with pinapple, apples, etc.
    I also like to cook cucumber on the grill. I peel and cut into slices, about med. in size. I drizzle a little chicken broth on them to enourage a little steaming, and add a little mashed anchovie . I use wine, chicken broth, liqueur, or vodka or gin sometimes to encourage steaming, epecially when cooking things like brussel sprouts.
    I do a lot of stir frying on the grill, epecially with spinach and then put into a sandwich. I have used the refrigerated crescent rolls in the tube before, to surround like cheese, mashed potato, onions and meat. Kind of like an En Croute.
    I grill a lot of bread slices on the grill. I use olive oil and herbs. For breakfast for my son, I will take a slice of bread and cut a hole with a small glass out of it.
    Then drop an egg into the hole after the bread is laid on a greased grill. I do stuffed mushrooms on the grill. I take out the stem, stuff them with a filling of pate, or a bread type stuffing with cheese to fill the declevity, and grill.
    I do the same with scooped out, halved cucumbers or tomatoes or parcooked green peppers with a meat and rice filling. I grill halved tomatoes, or sliced if large, with fresh cilantro.
    When cooking brocolli, bok choy, or vegetables that have two different densities, I often separate the tops from the bottoms and use them like two different vegetables. The brocolli I use the stems peeled and sliced lengwise. Cook on the grill with olive oil and garlic. The bok choy, I use the tops like spinach, and separately use the stems on the grill.
    I could go on and on. I love this machine. I have so many people tell me that the cleanup is a pain and they never use theirs. Sure beats washing pots and lids. I learned from your site how to use the wet paper towel inside to steam off the tough parts.
