Yes, it's that time of the year again folks. You've heard the ads, you've seen the sales...
What? Back to school time already??? Where did the summer go?
Even though fall doesn't officially start until well into September, back to school time sure feels like the end of summer to me. But that doesn't mean it has to be the end of the fun!
Instead of hanging our heads about the end of summer, why not use it as a chance to come together and celebrate by having a back to school party?
And not just any back to school party. A back to school BBQ party!
Ah summer.....hot days and plenty of neighborhood cookouts. This is the season that BBQ enthusiasts dream of! After all, who wants to heat up the house and overwork the air conditioner when you have a perfectly good grill outside? Not to mention the food tastes significantly better on the grill in my opinion.
If you are like me, you have a certain rotation of "go to" BBQ recipes. Tried and true favorites you can almost do blindfolded. But you know how it goes with doing the same thing over and over again. It is possible to have too much of a good thing.
So whether you are hosting a backyard grilling party or just want to try something different for your own household, it's important to have lots of options in your arsenal.
Did you know that snacking plays an important role in keeping you slim and trim? No, not snacks like potato chips or candy bars. I'm talking about healthy snacks that will actually aid in keeping that waistline in check this summer by boosting your metabolism!
Healthy snacks, when placed strategically in your day, will save you from overindulging on your larger meals. Healthy snacks throughout the day will also provide fuel for your workouts or any physical activities you may do.
Those that have blood sugar concerns should also enjoy the benefits of clean snacking. The healthy nutrients that you put into your body will help to keep your blood sugars even especially if you stay consistent with the diet.
