Choose BBQ meats without MSG and nitrates (nitrates are my migraine triggers, so I've found Oscar Mayer makes beef hotdogs and whole foods sells a few different brands without them).
Avoid prepackaged-processed burgers and make your own. Pick whole wheat buns over white buns. Grill veggies (like corn or squash) and choose salads made without mayonnaise, like spinach avocado salad or my black bean salad....
Opt for or add turkey/veggie burgers (try my black bean burgers), chicken sausage, and seafood to your menu. Get creative, and make your own BBQ sauce from scratch to cut out the high fructose corn syrup... But keep it a secret, especially if it's a hit!! My last tip, is always a staple, stay hydrated... Drink Water and don't overdo it on the BBQ cocktails. Have a happy & safe 4th of July!!
