BBQ Dinner:  Grilled Veggies, Mac n Cheese & BBQ Chicken!

Daily Tidbit:  Family BBQ Time!  This time of year it is so easy to just over indulge on a day like today (I was outside with 3 generations of my family most of the day playing games and chatting it up) - and I did!  But I tried to load up on Veggies to keep me feeling full in the midst of all the Chips and I did remember to take the skin off my BBQ chicken in time to save some calories for a yummy dessert!

WebMD has some tips on staying healthy during BBQ season here:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Walnuts with Blueberries
1/2 cup Oatmeal (cooked in Fat Free Milk in microwave)
2 tbsp Walnuts
1/2 cup of fresh Blueberries
3 Shakes of Plain Cinnamon
5 oz. OJ
Regular Coffee, black


Lunch: Open Faced Cold Cut Sandwich
1 Piece of Rye Bread topped with Yellow Mustard, 1 slice of Provolone Cheese, 2 Slices of Turkey
Black Olives & Pickles
1/2 Avocado
40% Less Fat Sweet Mesquite Kettle Cooked Cape Cod Potato Chips
Cherry Coke Zero
The Cape Cod Potato Chip brand does a good job of keeping it simple and lower fat than most chips, and they are so delicious!


Snack:  More of the Mesquite Potato Chips - okay a lot more!  I love them.  More Cherry Coke Zero too.

Snack:  1/2 of a Berger Cookie, total heaven if you want a fudge-y cookie cake dessert all in one!  My Aunt & Uncle just totally spoil us with these yummies.  I'm putting them into my freezer and saving them for a special treat!
