Summertime screams backyard BBQ! Today I shared tips on on how to make a tasty but healthier spread.
Rethink your potato chips
We’ll start with an easy appetizer. Bean or quinoa tortilla chips are a better-for-you alternative to your potato chips. They are light, crispy and higher in plant protein and fiber. You can serve these with your guacamole or hummus.
Guacamole Burgers and Mediterranean Meatloaf Sliders
Burgers are essential for any backyard BBQ! Be mindful of the meat that you use and be sure to utilize summer ingredients. Grass-fed beef is typically lower in saturated ft and higher in good-for-you omega’s fats. It’s a better-for-you grilling option that you can feel good about serving your guests.
Rethink your white bread hamburger buns
When it comes to hamburger buns, choose a sprouted whole grain variety. Sprouted makes the vitamins and minerals more bioavailable while lowering the carbs and increasing the protein.
Don’t forget dessert but make it healthier!
We can’t forget dessert! I desserts that are free of grains, gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Instead they are sweetened with raw local honey and made with nut flours. These can accommodate friends and family with dietary restrictions but of course everyone can enjoy them.
