Tips to a Healthier July 4th BBQ!

Eat healthiest foods first

Try eating slowly and off small plates, fill up on the healthiest stuff first. Salads are a great place to start because watery vegetables slow digestion and have very few calories. Try to choose something with oil and protein as well, because these will help you feel full sooner.

Skip the chips, crackers and bread

Refined carbohydrates are the worst things you can eat because they offer little satisfaction, loads of calories and dangerous insulin spikes. BBQs are filled with wonderful food, so choose wisely and save your calories for the really good stuff.

You don’t have to eat your burger without a bun, but pass on the pointless chips and other snacks that lure you when you’re not thinking. If you’re feeling bored, grab a Frisbee instead.

Keep dessert small

The difference between a large slice of cake and a smaller slice of cake can literally be hundreds of calories. And we can’t stress enough, sugar and refined carbohydrates are the most dangerous foods. You don’t have to pass on dessert completely, but keep your portion sizes in check for this course. Fruit is always a great dessert option on a hot summer day as well!

Making healthy choices this 4th will make you feel better, have less regret about going off course, and will allow you to have an even better HOLIDAY!!
