A Delicious Nutritious Barbecue
These days, people look for any excuse to break out the grill and have a good old-fashioned barbecue. Birthday parties, tailgate parties, graduation parties, basically every party is fitting for a grill out. However, throwing a barbecue does have its drawbacks, like the large amounts of unhealthy food that are often served at this kind of event. Thankfully, there are actually many ways to create a delicious and nutritious barbecue. So after ordering your invitations, check out these ideas for a nutritious BBQ.
Turkey Based Meats
Turkey based meats are often a lot healthier than beef and other meat options. Try getting turkey burgers and turkey bratwurst rather than the typical fat-filled beef options. This might also please a larger number of guests, such as those who are watching their weight or do not like cow products. Just make sure to note in the invitations that turkey will be served. That way, if people want to bring their own red meats to grill, they can.
Veggies and Fruits
Vegetables are great things to have at a BBQ. They can be served raw and require very little preparation. Just cut up some carrots, broccoli, and green peppers. Then, throw some ranch in a bowl, and there’s a delicious and nutritious treat for anyone. Fruits and cheeses are also a huge crowd pleaser. Instead of the typical chips and dip that are usually served at these events, get a fruit platter with crackers and cheese as a healthy alternative.
Water and Tea
Though many people like to enjoy a nice refreshing soda pop at a grill out, these kinds of carb-filled, sugary drinks are definitely not good for the body. Try serving up some ice-cold tea with lemons and having bottled water available as well. Lemonade is another great option for a healthier drink. Barbecues don’t always have to be full of junk food and fatty meats. Next time, try the delicious nutritious version instead.
