Yes, I am still talking about what to eat this weekend! Why? Because my in-box is flooded with emails from y’all asking me ‘what to eat?’ ‘what to bring?’ How to survive it!!!
I say, enjoy it! Make good, healthy choices and grill on!
PILE HIGH your plate with grilled eggplant, peppers, onions, corn and portobello mushrooms… a veritable veggie feast.
LEAVE YOUR BUN BEHIND. Do a burger lettuce wrap. No kidding, it’s really good.
DUMP THE SUGAR DOUSED BBQ SAUCE. Use mustard, ketchup and salsa instead.
GET HIGH ON HEALTH. A Margarita has more calories than the meal itself. Cut up a few cucumber slices, place in pitcher full of water and pour yourself a refreshing tall glass. Bottoms up!
SWAP IT. Trade in your bacon cheeseburger for a turkey burger or a veggie burger! Add lettuce, tomato, pickles and whatever else you like, plus some mustard and ketchup. Big yum.
PASTA SALAD. Go for it! Mix up some whole-wheat penne with tons of fresh zucchini, asparagus, onions, peppers.
DESSERT! Yay! DESSERT! Get your skewers ready and load ’em up with pineapple, mango and peach ‘chunks.’ Grill on into the night!
WHOA! That’s a lot of grilling and plenty of bang for your calorie buck.
