When you think grilling most people think an added 5 pounds. If you learn to skip the Potato Salad it can be a great part of your low carb diet. I am going to show you how.
First start with exchanging your potato salad for this healthier option:
No Potato Salad
4 cups fresh cauliflower
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
sugar-free sweet pickle relish
3 TBL. Real bacon bits
Salt and pepper (optional)
Steam the cauliflower until soft. Be careful not to overcook. Drain and remove as much water as possible. Set out on paper towel until dry. Chop cauliflower into small pieces and allow to cool. Place in a large bowl. Place pickle relish to taste. Add the Bacon bits. Mix mayonnaise and sour cream. More or less of the mixture can be used to suit your taste but make sure it is equal parts. Season with salt and pepper& refrigerate.
Skip the burger and go for the other meats. As long as you are not using BBQ dressings that are full of sugar most meats are great low carb options. Try using rubs in place of the dressing. One of my favorite ones for chicken is very simple and so yummy.
½ tsp celery salt
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp onion powder
Combine ingredients, rub chicken with a little Olive Oil and cover with the rub.
Afraid of missing out on all the yummy deserts? You can have yours to. This simple one will satisfy even the sweetest tooth.
2 1/2 cups your favorite fruit
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Sugar substitute to taste
Whip the cream then fold in the fruit and sugar substitute.
Once again the best thing you can do is experiment. Don’t let your diet kill your love of grilling.
