WELLNESS WEDNESDAY TIME :-)
Summer is almost here! For many, Memorial Day is the start of warm weather, shorts, sun, parties…and lots and lots of delicious food.
If you’re headed to a barbecue this weekend, have fun! Eat well! But…know that you can enjoy yourself and manage to still fit into those shorts and cute summer dresses.
Here are a few healthy Memorial Day tips:
1. Snack before you go. Why? Because if you show up starving, you’ll overeat. Not only that, but you’ll more than likely choose the higher-calorie and higher-fat foods. Also, if you force yourself to not eat all day prior to a party, you’ll slow down your metabolism, meaning that you’ll potentially gain more weight as you’re eating those second and third helpings of potato salad and burgers.
2. Look around you. Check out ALL your food options before you decide what to eat. This will help you make more sensible choices, and eat a more balanced meal.
3. Balance out your plate. Choose one serving of lean protein, preferably barbecue chicken or fish. Then choose some healthy grilled vegetables, tomato slices and/or salad. Try to only take a smaller portion of higher-calorie options. Then…enjoy!
4. Rethink your drink. Eat something before you have your first drink, since it’ll help you consume less calories from alcohol, but it’ll help you maintain more control over how much you drink and eat.
5. Stop eating. After that first plate, go enjoy the other great thing about parties…the guests! Enjoy conversations, play games, dance, and make the most of everything the barbecue has to offer.
