Getting invited to a summer BBQ shouldn’t stress you out. Here are 5 tips to keep you on track!

  1. Always make sure you choose a lean protein, such as fish, shrimp, scallops, grilled chicken breast, veggie burgers, buffalo burgers, or fat-free hot dogs.  You can top them off with low-calorie condiments like ketchup, pickles, salsa, mustard, and hot sauce.
  2. Grilled veggies–like onions, peppers, asparagus, and corn on the cob–are flavorful and very low in calories.
  3. Stay away from high-fat side dishes like coleslaw, macaroni salad, and potato salad.
  4. If you need to have something sweet, try fruit pops and fruit bars that contain no added sugar and are fat-free.
  5. And don’t forget to stay hydrated: make sure you drink lots of water!
