Spring is definitely here, cialis with summer a little more than a month away. Once Memorial Day hits, drugs barbecue and cookout season begins. However, for sale it’s been proven that the hotdogs, hamburgers, ribs, pork chops, and other meats often prepared at cookouts are very high in calories and cholesterol and can negatively affect the heart. With the help of the Huffington Post alternatives for barbecuing, Urban Views Weekly made a list of food alternatives for barbecues so that people won’t waste all the hard work that they put in trying to get in shape during the winter.
Corn on the Cob
Oftentimes, people throw salt and butter on their corn. This isn’t the healthiest option, dietitian and nutritionist, Keri Gans said. Squeezing lemon or lime juice on the corn makes for a healthier meal.
Instead of the same old meats, like ground beef and pork, Gans suggested trying sirloin, ground chicken breast or skinless turkey. These are healthier choices and will fill you up just as much as the traditional barbecue meats.
This is also a slight change to the traditional barbecue. Processed, white, fluffy bread is proven to be unhealthy and has added calories. Wheat buns are not the only choice. Gans also suggested “sandwich thin” buns as a healthy alternative.
An alternative recipe can be used to modify potato salad. “Try adding white wine vinegar, mustard and a little olive oil in lieu of regular mayonnaise,” Gans said.
Coleslaw can be a very healthy side item. Using an alternative recipe can increase its nutritional value. While mayonnaise is often used in coleslaw, Gans said, switching that out for nonfat Greek yogurt and adding apple cider vinegar will give it a new flavor and is healthier.
Chips are served at almost every cookout. However, a salty, crunchy, and healthy substitute is the pickle. Chopping them up and serving them as slices, instead of chips, will make a much healthier and filling addition to the meal.
