Summertime is indeed BBQ season! Hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad oh my! It's easy to fall into the trap of poor eating just because the food is available. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy summer BBQs and eating healthy at the same time.
1. Pay attention to portion size! For example, a tennis ball is the perfect portion size for all of your sides like potato salad, pasta, etc.
2. Fill up on your veggies first! Eat plenty of green salad and a few tablespoons of your favorite dressing, preferably low fat or fat free.
3. Go play! After you finish eating, grab some friends and play catch or any other form of physical activity. You will "burn off" your meal while having fun at the same time.
