Vegetables are something you should and you must eat. Before moving on a main course, eat vegetables as much as you can, just don’t overeat. Beside veggies has vitamins, minerals and nutrients, you will have less space inside a belly for a main course. When you move to the main course, add; mushrooms, mixed greens, spinach, tomatoes and red onions as much as you can. The more vegetables you eat, less space for meat.
The best meat for a barbecue is cow’s meat. Wrong! It isn’t very healthy. A much better alternative is fish. It is full with protein and omega 3 fatty acids (they are good for the brain). Wild salmon is the perfect fish for your barbecue. You should marinate fillets in a sesame oil, soy sauce, fresh ginger, pure maple syrup and garlic. You can also make salmon burgers. They are much cheaper alternative.
Another thing is booze. A barbecue is the best way to drink a glass or two of alcoholic drink with your friends. Before you do, you should mix it with water. With this tip, you will start hydrated during the warm days. Even then, you should drink too much of alcohol.
