4th of July BBQ tips:

  • Make a plan before you go so you know what you are walking into. Will Aunt Edna be making her famous Cherry Pie? Will your mother-in-law be making her gre
    at potato salad? Figure out what your temptations are going to be so that you have a plan before you arrive.
  • If you know you are going to want the pie or the potato salad you need to prepare a safe alternative ahead of time. Try making an IP Pudding cake or some cauliflower “potato” salad.
  • Be in charge of the veggie try. Is your gathering the type where the only counted vegetable is that potato salad? Make sure you bring a great spread with all of your approved vegetables. Try a Walden Farms Ranch or Blue Cheese dip too, we promise they wont know the difference.
  • A BBQ is a great way to eat while on Phase one. Bring some chicken or have a burger, hold the bun. Wrap it in lettuce and add some raw onions, mustard, tomato, pickles and some Wal
    en Farms mayo or ketchup if you like.
  • Barbeque up your favorite vegetable too, this is a great way to get in your 4 cups for the day. After the burger and the vegetables you will be so satisfied you wont even miss the pie!
