5 Tips for Staying Healthy This Summer

Bring on the hot dogs! Bring on the hamburgers! Pass the coleslaw and potato salad! July 4th is just around the corner which means we are getting ready for some delicious eating. We love this holiday and the chance to indulge in our summer favorite foods such as burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, and apple pie. However, when trying to stick to a healthy diet and lifestyle, these foods can often get in the way. We reached out to Robyn Youkilis, Board Certified Health and Cooking Coach and Seamless Nutrition consultant, to get her tips on how to stay healthy while indulging in all that is July 4th Eating!

5 Healthy Tips for July 4th:

  1. Order “animal style” for hot dogs and hamburgers, sandwiching the meat between large lettuce leaves and piling on the veggie fixings.
  2. Classic sides like creamy coleslaws and potato dishes need a serious calorie cut. So, order a mixed greens salad with no dressing, and then mix the greens in with the creamy sides.  You’ll double the volume and get an extra serving of veggies.
  3. Healthy BBQ restaurant side dishes exist, you just have to look for them. Grilled or steamed vegetables and whole grains like quinoa are increasingly common. You can even enjoy black-eyed peas, baked beans and sweet potatoes. If you choose corn, enjoy the sweet seasonal goodness, just remember it counts as a grain rather than a vegetable.
  4. Nothing says Fourth of July like a slice of apple pie – dive into the filling, but skip the crust, where most of the butter and flour linger.
  5. Choose lean proteins like grilled chicken and fish when ordering from your favorite BBQ hotspots. Even better, get it grilled plain and ask for the BBQ sauce on the side, so you can control the amount in your dish.  Avoid brisket, pork or ribs, but if you can’t resist have a small serving of these meats.
