Barbecue secret to AGE IN REVERSE

The key to looking and feeling younger than our years is to reduce exposure to compounds appropriately called AGEs.  Advanced glycation and products, which form when food is cooked at high temperatures or without moisture, weaken collagen and cause dry, creepy, sagging skin and wrinkles. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your summer barbecue! Beef brims with amino acids that research suggests curb the formation of AGEs by 33%. What’s more, marinating meats before cooking them cuts AGEs in half.

    What an interesting concept. I had no idea this was happening. I’ll be sure to marinate after this.
