Swedes grill an average of 26 times a year, and it is carnivores that grill the most. A new survey by HelloFresh of the grocery store shows. Additionally, gender roles are clearly divided in the grill, with seven out of ten men answering that they are the ones who grill, compared to two in ten women.
When it comes to what we like to put on the grill, pork and sausage win, while beef and vegetables come in third. Then we love burgers, chicken and grilled cheese. Although meat is still a favorite on the grill, it is the vegetarian grill categories that have increased the most in recent years. A third of respondents have grilled cheese now more than five years, while one in four have grilled vegetables more than five years ago.
On average, Swedes grill 26 times a year. Carnivores grill an average of 28 times a year, while Bischitarians, vegetarians (13 times a year) and vegetarians (11 times a year) grill half as often as omnivores. Flexitarians grill an average of 17 times a year. In the survey, nine out of ten answered that they eat meat.
Men grill more
Grilling has long been presented as a man’s domain, and when asked who usually takes up the habit of outdoor grilling in the family, seven out of ten men answered “I,” while only two out of ten women answered the same question. Nearly six out of ten men answer that they are the ones who buy barbecue ingredients, while half of women give the same answer. When it comes to preparing dishes for barbecue, on the other hand, the roles are more equal, with 53% of men answering that they deal with this matter, while 51% of women answered the same.
