Barbecue bliss

BRYDON HELLER introduces us to a tasty new range that offers a healthier approach to our Kiwi summer barbecues.

Summer is here! And that means more time eating outdoors, meat on the barbecue and picnics at the beach! Long summer days out and about enjoying our family adventures, for many of us, means more ice creams, fish and chips and food on the run.

To make the most of summer fun, we all want our families to stay healthy and full of good, nutritious food. And for many modern families, that means cutting down on our meat intake and pumping up the veges!

Well – just in time for barbecue season – Hellers is now offering a delicious new range of sausages, burgers and meatballs, perfect for the outdoor grill but secretly packed with 28-34 per cent vegetables. As we know, less meat and more vegetables means better wellbeing for everyone.

Known for their focus on fantastic flavour and texture, the new Hellers range is more ‘flexitarian’ than vegetarian. “It’s a nice way for parents to reduce meat intake and get vegetables into the kids, which is important,” says Brydon. “But first and foremost, they’ve got to taste great!” Packed with delicious flavour-blends, carefully chosen vegetables and premium quality lean mince, Hellers new range will satisfy any barbecue lover.

There are six mouth-watering options: Sunday Roast Chicken sausages; Miso Beef & Black Rice burgers; Super Greens & Pork sausages; Beef, Beetroot and Lentil burgers and sausages; and Asian Pork meatballs. “Dad wouldn’t be disappointed either if he grabs the wrong one off the BBQ,” says Brydon.

Ideal for a quick meal after a swim, easy to pack for your day trips, and the perfect thing to take to a potluck with friends – you’ll know your kids are getting the power-pack of protein and energy they need for active summer days, with all the added benefits of vegetables to boot!
