What's on Your July 4 Menu?
Some holidays make you choose between sticking to healthful eating habits and indulging in traditional favorite foods. I usually try to strike a balance at, say, Thanksgiving time, eating mostly healthful stuff but allowing myself enough treats that I don't feel deprived.
Fourth of July's different, though, because many of the foods I associate with it -- and those that are abundantly available when it occurs -- are good for you. Corn, watermelon, steamed crabs, grilled chicken and the like are all yummy and nutritionally sound. Of course, there are also cheeseburgers, ribs, macaroni salads, strawberry shortcake and beer. Yummy, yes, but maybe not so nutritionally terrific.
What's on your plate this weekend? Will you go for a "healthy" heaping of food, or indulge in fatty favorites? Whatever you choose, enjoy!
