Eat This Over That

Quick healthy food swaps for the summer

Summer is the time to enjoy cookouts, picnics, and grilling on the patio.  Many traditional summer foods contain high amounts of sodium, unhealthy fats, and added sugars. Following a healthy diet doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite summer dishes. You can still enjoy them by making healthier choices.

  • Main Dishes – Choose lean protein options like chicken, turkey, fish, beans, or tofu, and skip the red meats.
  • Sandwiches – Choose fresh-sliced cooked chicken, turkey, or vegetables instead of processed deli meats.
  • Snacks – Eat some raw vegetables with a Greek yogurt dip, instead of potato chips and dip.
  • Drinks – Add fresh fruit to water or sparkling water instead of sipping on sugary beverages.
  • Dessert Swaps – Grill some fresh peaches or pineapple and top with whipped topping or Greek yogurt, instead of a slice of pie.
