Health Tip: Skip Traditional Barbequed Food
-- Enjoy the summer ritual of barbequing without derailing your healthy eating plan.
Here are suggestions from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:
- Swap beef for turkey with fresh herbs.
- Baste and grill your favorite veggies, such as zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, onions, carrots and corn.
- For a sweet treat, grill fruit such as pineapple slices, peach halves or fruit kebobs. Serve them with angel food cake or low-fat ice cream.
