However, it IS possible to make good choices when attending food-centered get-togethers. Here are some my healthier picks for your holiday BBQ:
Grill lean meats for example make sure you using 93/7 hamburger, bulk it up with fresh mushrooms minced. I also add ff feta to my burgers. Use 2% cheese to save calories/points. Add lettuce and tomato to help fill you up.
As long as that grill is hot throw on fresh veggies. I take a cheese slicer and cut zucchini longways (about 1/4 thick) spray with olive oil cooking spray, Salt and Pepper and grill them up. Asparagus or corn is always a family favorite too.
Fresh fruit salad is also a great side dish, and refreshing in the summer heat. I add Tropicana Trop 50 and mix in my fruit. It will stop bananas from turning brown besides adding flavor.
Raw vegetables like baby carrots, grape tomatoes, broccoli, jicama, and celery are easy to take along and dip in a light ranch dressing or in hummus.
Deserts are no problem, there are many on the website. So make one and bring your own. Don't forget how delicious fruit is sliced and grilled too. Peaches and Pineapple actually get sweeter once grilled.
So enjoy your summer and grill up!! Remember YOU CAN DO IT!!
