- Avoid using barbecue sauces with high sugar and calorie content. Instead, marinate your meat in soy sauce and your selection of herbs and spices.
- Create your own pasta or potato salad. Be especially choosy when picking up ingredients for your salad.
- Make your own desserts with fruits. They are lighter, cooler and healthier.
- Watch what you drink. Do not drink soda, it is full of sugar and the diet versions are full of chemicals. It is also good to avoid drinking alcohol but if you do, choose a light beer. A fruit punch or a fruit shake would be a good alternative.
- Consider making home-made sweet potato french fries.
- Watch how much you eat. Don’t get carried away with the set of delicious dishes on the table.
