Barbecue LITE: super healthy ideas to hit BBQ season in style
If you thought barbecue had to be unhealthy, you thought wrong my friend
If you thought barbecue had to be unhealthy, think again. Marinades and dressings may often be packed full of oil, salt and sugar, but there's an alternative.
The Skinny Food Company provide sauces, dressings and seasoning to get bags of flavour, without any of the downsides.
Here's a few ideas for using them this barbecue season.
Main: Honey BBQ coated meat
Why not try marinading your meat in Honey BBQ Skinny Sauce pre-grill? Overnight is best, but as little 15 minutes will do the trick if you're short on time. It's also great as a burger sauce in meat or veggie burgers straight off the barbecue.
You can use Honey BBQ sauce to coat pretty much anything, before or after it gets cooked
Side: Spiced chips or wedges
Chips don't have to be boring, and spice mixes don't have to be super salty. Shower your chips or wedges with love this summer by using the Skinny Spices Chips and Wedges spice mix. Just toss your chips in a tablespoon of the spice mix and you're away.
Give your chips and wedges a bit of pizzaz this summer
