Holistic Nutritionist approved BBQ product swaps & recipes.
I don’t know about you, but I barbeque all year round, even in minus 20 degree weather (thank you Canada!).
With that being said, I’m always looking for new products to try to ‘spice’ up my meals. Because I barbeque so often, I want to make sure I’m nourishing my body with quality ingredients.
Before I buy products, I ALWAYS read the labels. Not just the nutrition facts, but the actual ingredients. We have become so fixated on reading how many calories, how much fat, how much protein, etc. we forget to read the ingredients.
Here are some ingredients to watch for:
- Sugar (acne, mood swings, cravings, to name a few)
- Vegetable oil, like canola oil (over 90% of canola oil is genetically modified, it is partially hydrogenated, contributes to inflammation)
- Artificial flavours (can literally be any ‘deemed safe’ chemical to make up for a flavour in a product)
So, I’m back with some more awesome health promoting product recommendations and recipes to share with you and your fam.
If you want to be the star of your next gathering, date night or just a family dinner, you’re going to want to take some notes!
