Memorial Day weekend really kicks off summer, swimsuits & BBQ's with friends. I love that the sun is out and that my weekend always includes a dip at the pool. One of my major downfalls is eating too much potato salad, ice cold beer and 800 calories margaritas. I swear they call my name. It isn't easy. One thing that really helps me keep my cravings at bay is proper beer selection and eating a snack before I head to a BBQ. You have no idea how much it helps to have a huge glass of water and a snack high in protein before going to live it up BBQ style.
Best Pre BBQ Snacks:
Low fat yogurt
Tuna salad on crackers
Peanut butter on an apple
Half turkey sandwich on wheat bread
