Grilling, frying, or broiling foods causes toxins known as advanced glycation end products (AGEs) to be produced. These toxins are linked to inflammation, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s, and more. Steamed foods, on the other hand, do not produce AGEs and are much more healthy to consume.
Steam healthy foods such as fish and vegetables instead of grilling them with dry heat.
Other alternatives include stewing or poaching—the important thing to avoid is dry heat.
