Are you planning a 4th of July family barbecue? It’s not an easy task feeding the extended family. Family members have different food wants and needs. But there’s one thing for sure you will need to make a priority – serving healthy barbecue food.
Hearn Kirkwood is here to help you throw a healthy and fabulous barbecue this 4th of July.
When too much junk food is served at a family BBQ, you can expect guests and yourself to have bloated waistlines and morning sickness the next day.
Here are some healthy food alternatives you can try out to create a fun and delicious family BBQ:
- Grill Grass Fed Steak. Grass fed steaks are better cuts of meat than ordinary steaks. You can serve the steak with salad or pasta salad.
- Serve meat on a stick. This can help your family eat in moderation (portion control is a must) during the big family BBQ. Great meats you can serve on a stick are beef cuts, chicken, and pork. Don’t forget to serve your meat on a stick with dipping sauces such as BBQ, sriracha, or mustard sauce.
- Serve skewer vegetables as well as skewer fruits. Some amazing summer vegetables you can serve as skewer vegetables for the big summer party are mushrooms, brussel sprouts and zucchini.
More importantly, know the estimated amount of guests that will show up to your BBQ weeks in advance. Have plenty of fresh water available for partygoers and promote guests to drink water for every other alcohol beverage.
With these tips, party guests will remain full and chipper. Best of all, they will be eager to attend your next big party gathering.
