5 ways to have a healthy summer BBQ

5 ways to have a healthy summer BBQ

Finally - summer is right around the corner! With the changing of the season - our clothes start to shrink and our social lives begin to blow up! And what is a party without food?! To stay on track with your fitness goals it’s important that we fuel our body with proper nutrients. One activity that I love is a good ole’ barbeque - just something about cooking food on a grill that makes it taste so much better! SO let’s learn how to have a healthy BBQ: 

When you think of a BBQ the first thing that usually pops to mind is the meat you grill! Lean protein like fish, skinless chicken breast, and ground turkey burgers are perfect choices. When we feed our body this kind of protein - it pumps our bodies full of nutrients! Then your body can repair muscle after you feel the BURN! You’ll be ready for that BIKINI in no time! I have many lean protein options on my nutrition guide- so check it out if you need some inspiration.

Eat colorful and feel colorful! Almost all of your favorite fruits and veggies can be thrown on the grill - giving them a yummy smoked flavor! Some delicious options would be mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, corn, eggplant and much MORE! The trick to cooking fruits and veggies is to cut them into pieces that cook evenly and quickly. Your tastebuds and body will thank you! Check out my nutrition guide to learn more about balance fruits and veggies.

It’s so easy to grab store-bought BBQ fare like coleslaw, macaroni salad, and baked beans - but they are not doing the body any favors! They are filled with saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars. You can indulge in these goodies if you make them at home with healthy alternatives! And you can’t go wrong with a leafy green salad! Just add all of your favorite toppings and it is ready to go! It’s so easy and delicious!!

Less is best! Salty sauces, sugary condiments, and heavy dressings will drown the flavor of your grilled food! Let that flavor shine through! IF you need some extra taste - homemade sauces are a healthier alternative. Most of the time it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. And sometimes, a little salt and pepper gives it that extra kick you need.

For all you sweet tooths out there - you can fix that craving and still see RESULTS! ALSO - you can make it on the grill! My favorite is grilled pineapple. And what is summer without pineapple?! The natural sugars caramelize in high heat giving it the sweet taste we all love.


In the midst of social seasons, it’s important that we keep a mindful eye on the food we ingest - 80% of how you look and feel is based on that! My nutrition guide gives you many easy and satisfying alternatives. I’m here to help you stay on track so you become the BEST version of yourself!
