Who loves barbecues? Who loves all the different kinds of food at barbecues? Have you ran out of room for all the food you want to try?
I know I have!
Making healthy choices can be difficult at these kinds of parties. But with a few simple tips, you’ll have no problem at all.
- Tip #1 – Take what you love, leave what you like! It’s important to allow ourselves to eat our favorite foods, even if they aren’t the best choice. Pick one dessert you know you’ll love, and leave the rest for another time.
- Tip #2 – Fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables. Enjoy the fresh crunch of cucumbers, carrots, corn on the cob, and juicy watermelon!
- Tip #3 – Stop eating when you’re full! It’s easy to accidentally grab more food than you are hungry for. Listen to your tummy when it tells you it’s done.
- Tip #4 – Bring a healthy side to share with your friends and family! Try one of our recipes below.
