Happy 4th of July! There are a lot of things to love about July 4th: It’s finally summer, the kids are out of school, and BBQ’s are in full swing.  Celebrate the birth date of the declaration of independence by going to a 4th of July BBQ.

Staying healthy at a BBQ is easier than one might think.  Going for these healthy options can make your summer healthy and fun:

Turkey burgers:  This is a great alternative to ground beef.  Turkey is lower and calories and are a leaner cut of meat.

Grilled Sweet potatoes:  Sweet potatoes are loaded with potassium, dietary fiber, and complex carbohydrates, so will give you lasting energy for hours to come.

Tuna-Avocado Salad: Opting for tuna avocado salad rather than the conventional pasta or potato salad will save you some calories and fat.  Tuna and avocado is the perfect nutrient dense combo.

Home-made ice-cream:  Rather than buying ice cream from the grocery store, try making your own at home.  You can choose exactly what you want to put into it and you can even choose to make a dairy free version.  

Make a low-calorie, low-sugar alcoholic beverage.  Opt for a vodka seltzer with lemon or lime rather than a vodka tonic.  Tonic water is actually very high in calorie and sugar.  Not only will seltzer save you calories it will save you the hangover as well.
