Not sugar-free, but less of it, therefore sugar-free. Give your water fruits like lemon, strawberry, watermelon or even hearty herbs like basil or tarragon. For alcohol, choose liqueurs over ice or low-calorie seltzer.
Speaking of less sugar
There is literally nothing sweeter or more delicious than the fruits of summer. Yes, fruits like apples and pears are amazing too, but these will come in the fall. You don’t even have to do anything for summer sweets, but maybe it’s thrown on the grill for a warm and tasty treat. To do this, choose pineapple, peaches and plums or plums. Enjoy sweet and natural sugar from watermelon and citrus. And don’t forget the berries! Sliced strawberries and bananas with blueberries and raspberries can be used as a fruit salad. All you have to do is add a dash of orange juice and gently toss the fruits together.
Choose “healthier” spices
You know, those who are already healthy. Toppings like cucumbers and olives can be good (provided you don’t eat too much salt regularly). And stack up all the vegetables you like, whether they’re lettuce, tomato, onion, or even avocado. Mustard is also low in calories and the most prepared mustard contains turmeric, a healthy and useful spice, especially for its anti-inflammatory properties.
BBQ and baked beans go together like bread and butter, but most beans are filled with preservatives and especially sugar. Yup. Perhaps this article should have been called How To Stay Away From Excess Sugar This Summer. When making your own beans, however, you can only add the ingredients you want, so you can control how much is used. Or make bean salad, which mainly focuses on the beans and sometimes contains a light sauce and other vegetables.
Eat before you go
But there will be food there, and isn’t that the point? Go to a place where food is served and eaten? Yes, but if you’re starving, it will be difficult to keep an eye on all of these things, let alone them. Before you go, drink several large cups of cold water. And eat something, be it an apple, a fruit and nut bar or a handful of nuts. If you eat a little snack and drink a lot of water, you will literally get a bit full, so you can enjoy the food at the party but enjoy the company more.
These crazy simple ways to eat healthier in the summer really work. Try them out and enjoy the summer as long as it lasts! Um, until we are quarantined again?
