The Dairy Queen has a problem. She needs a low-fat alternative to those delicious, enormously high-fat gourmet bratwursts.

jhuston says, “Tuna steaks are super easy and so very healthy.” Brush them with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and grill them for a couple of minutes per side. If you want to jazz it up a little, marinate them ahead of time for 20 or 30 minutes.

bulavinaka suggests beets! “I think beets have been dealt a bad rap because the canned stuff is pretty hideous.” Take fresh beets, peel, and slice them between a 1/4 inch and a 1/2 inch thick. Brush them with some marinade, and grill them until you get nice brown spots on the surface—this is the beet sugar starting to caramelize.

Jill Brazil says that turkey sausages are a good lower-fat alternative. There’s even turkey bratwurst.
