It’s the 4th of July and for many people that means cookouts! I love cookouts with family and friends, but too often people think that cookouts automatically mean unhealthy food. Here are some healthy cookout tips to try today:

– Grilled boneless, skinless BBQ Chicken – choose a sauce that doesn’t include high fructose corn syrup or monosodium glutamate in the ingredients.

– Veggie Kabobs – try any combination of veggies like grape tomatoes, mushrooms, red, yellow or green peppers, onions, red potatoes, zucchini, or corn on the cob, and season them with sodium free seasoning or a little healthy vinaigrette dressing.

– If you must have burgers:
1) Make sure the ground beef or turkey is 99% lean and keep the burgers moist by mixing vinaigrette dressing and seasonings into the meat.
2) use 100% whole grain, low carb buns
3) Use low fat cheese or skip the cheese all together.
4) Use fat free sour cream instead of mayo.
5) Don’t skip the tomato and lettuce or baby spinach.

– Make a fresh fruit salad and a topping of plain, non fat Greek yogurt and a good vanilla protein powder. You can even add a few drops of raspberry extract or a squeeze of lemon juice and don’t forget a drizzle of pure maple syrup if you want a little more sweetness.

– Make a giant gourmet salad to contribute to the table of food options. You might be surprised how many people will appreciate having a healthy food option available.

– A raw veggie plate is a great healthy snacking option, but most people like to dip their veggies in something, and the store-bought dips are very unhealthy. Try this simple option instead, it tastes like french onion dip: just sprinkle some Garlic & Herb Mrs Dash and a little Onion & Herb Mrs Dash into fat free sour cream. Add a little pink himalayan salt to taste.

– Instead of store-bought, very unhealthy potato salad, try cutting baby red potatoes into quarters, drizzling with vinaigrette or non-creamy italian dressing, and bake until softened and golden. Cool and serve as is, or mix in fat free sour cream to create a healthier potato salad.

– Have lots of cold water on hand. If you think you’ll be too tempted by the sodas, try mixing plain club soda and pure fruit juice (there should be no other ingredients). There will still be a lot of natural sugar in this beverage from the fruit, but it’s a better option that all the chemicals in sodas.

I hope these healthy cookout tips helped you enjoy a nice cookout without undoing all your hard work on your health and fitness journey!
