5/28/15 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Saturday

Today we are having a cookout with our friends.  What are healthy choices at a cookout?  First and foremost, always volunteer to bring a dish.  Then you know it's low-fat (or at least I hope that's what you would prepare!).  I'm not kidding, if I know it's going to be hot dogs and fatty hamburgers I bring a Boca Burger or grilled chicken.  This is a much healthier option.  If I've forgotten to bring my own protein then I've even done a bun, lettuce, mustard, tomatoe, pickles, and a slice of cheese as my protein.  I usually bring a salad that has mixed greens, fat-free feta, and cranberries in it.  I bring a bag of pine nuts for those that want to put them on their individual salads.  Pine nuts are a healthy fat but I'd rather have light dressing or a glass of wine instead since I can only do one additional fat per day.  If you're bringing a side dish then make potato or broccoli salad with light or fat-free mayo.  But, if you have a bun with your protein that is now your starch.  A lot of times I just eat the grilled chicken or Boca plain so I can have a scoop of a side dish.  Baked beans can be low in fat but extremely high in sugar so beware!

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
