7 Ways To Eat Healthier Without Even Trying

Healthy Eating: The Summer BBQ Edition.

1. At your next BBQ, fill up on veggie-packed whole grain salads instead of pasta salads.

Toss whole grains such as quinoa, farro, freekeh, or wild rice with summer fruits and veggies for an easy potluck dish that will keep for hours at room temperature (a MUST when it comes to party dishes).

3. Add frozen peas to guacamole to add sweetness and volume without adding any extra fat.

Peas don't take away from the creamy texture or pretty green color, they just lighten things up a little bit, since peas have fewer calories and less fat than avocado. Recipe here.


5. Instead of grilling hot dogs (hello, mystery ingredients!), grill pork skewers.

Food on a stick is way more fun. Not only can you play around with different marinades and additional skewer ingredients like veggies, but the stick means there's no need for a refined carb-filled bun!
