Red, White, and Not So Blue

July 1, 2009

While enjoying a Fourth of July barbeque with friends, it’s easy to spot the trays of delicious food and fear the worst. If you’re concerned about overindulging, head to the watermelon first. This cookout favorite is water-rich, so it fills you up without weighing you down. That’s not to say you shouldn’t enjoy something from the grill. But if you start off with fruit, you’ll be less tempted by heavy snacks like potato salad, brownies, and fries.
