With the warmer weather well under way, you'll probably be attending one weekend barbecue after another. But whether you’re hosting or attending one, why not do it the healthy way?

Include Good Oils
Use good oils over your meat or salads. Think about using olive, avocado, peanut or canola oil, and stay away from refined oils like corn.


Try grilling your Fruit & Veggies
It might be custom to throw as much meat on the BBQ as possible, but it doesn't necessarily have to be all protein. Fruits and vegetables taste amazing grilled and work well as a side dish or alone on a skewer.


Use Lean cuts of Meat
With the broad range of meat options available, it can be difficult to spot the difference between the healthy and the unhealthy. But if you're going to make your next BBQ a healthy one, choosing lean meats with little fat is the way to go.


Include a spicy sauce or marinade
Tomato sauce might be the popular choice for a BBQ, but if you're trying to be healthy it's a condiment you might want to stay away from due to its high sugar and sodium content. Instead, try experimenting with fresh spices and herbs.


Swap the meat for Fish
To reduce your intake of saturated fats, swap your meat dish up with your favourite fish. Just about any fish works well grilled straight on the BBQ, especially garlic and chilli prawns! YUM!


Don't Forget the Sides
Make sure you have plenty of healthy sides to fill your plate so you're less likely to grab the calorie-rich foods.Include things like salads, healthy dips.


Forget the Unhealthy Carbs
Instead of packing your meat and salad inside a burger bun, swap it for a wholemeal wrap .
