BBQ season is here! As you can imagine, One on One’s RDs are getting bombarded with the question “Do you have any healthy summer BBQ recipes?” The answer is YES and we want to share them with everyone!
But first, we want to let you in on a little secret. It’s not just about finding the lowest calorie recipes that make a BBQ healthy. The secret to success is avoiding overeating. I know, I know, easier said than done especially when we are surrounded by tasty food and everyone is seemingly overindulging. You CAN eat all your BBQ favorites, provided you commit to stopping before you need to be rolled home. Use mindful eating strategies, such as the Hunger Scale, to help you stop when you are pleasantly full. Remember: it takes 15 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that you’re full, so slow down!!
