Healthy BBQ Food Alternatives For Your Next Family BBQ

1 minute read

Summer often feels like one giant vacation. From the pool parties, to the family reunions, to the neighborhood block parties. But all of those summer soirées can become an all-you-can-eat buffet of some not-so-healthy choices. Here are some delicious and healthy alternatives for a family BBQ.

Healthy BBQ Food Alternatives

Option 1: Lean Protein

Choosing grilled chicken or fish over red meat or sausages is a great way to cut fat and calories at your family BBQ without sacrificing the flavor.

Option 2: Rethink the Bun

When a burger, brat, or hotdog are your only options, opting for no bun is a great way to cut back on refined carbohydrates. Or, try one of these low-carb alternatives to the classic white bun.

Option 3: Veggie Noodle Substitutes

These are another low-carb healthy alternatives to some of your favorite pasta salads at your family BBQ.

Option 4: Fruit for Dessert

Is it even a BBQ without dessert? Grilling fresh fruit caramelizes its natural sugar, making it the perfect sweet treat for your BBQ.

Simple Swaps

No matter your diet or lifestyle, your outdoor parties can be guilt-free when you make these simple substitutions.

Here are a few more honorable mentions:

  • Fresh Veggies > Potato Chips
  • Green Salad > Creamy Coleslaw
  • Baked Beans > Potato Salad
  • Fresh Iced Tea > Soda or other sugary drinks
