Healthy Father’s Day BBQ Swaps

We all know dads love a good BBQ, so why not treat Dad to a healthy BBQ this Father’s day? Start summer right with these healthy BBQ swaps!

Swap Lemonade for a Homemade Fruit Smoothie

Smoothies typically have more nutritional value than fruit juice. When you blend whole pieces of fruit (including the “skin” of the fruit) you get all the great vitamins, minerals, and fiber from the fruit skin. Be wary of fruit juices that you buy from the store that are loaded with added sugar!

Swap Beef for Salmon Burgers 

Swapping out beef for salmon patties can decrease your caloric and saturated-fat intake, while boosting your intake of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for heart health!

Swap Potato Salad for Veggie Skewers

Cut back on the mayo-heavy potato salad and grill veggie skewers instead! Pile on the mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and zucchini for colorful kabobs.
