5 Easy Ways to Cut Calories at Your Next Summer BBQ

Branch Out From Burgers

Red (meat) alert! Instead of fatty patties or processed sausages, opt for turkey or veggie burgers (100 calories for the burger, 200 calories for the bun). Try them open-faced with half a bun, ideally whole-grain or light versions, and hold the cheese and mayo in favor of mustard, relish and salsa. For a fun twist on lean meat, skewer chicken, shrimp or swordfish onto diet-friendly kebobs (150 calories per stick).
