Hot Tips for Staying Cool

Hot Tips for Staying CoolWith summer comes some inevitable changes in our diets – we get grilling, we get chilling – but sometimes our food choices are just too filling.

If you’re looking for some staying cool food rules, check out these summer nutrition tips from dietitians at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center:

  • Ditch the beef – go for bison, turkey or vegetarian burgers
  • Quite the mayo – use mustard or low-fat plain yogurt instead of mayo in potato or pasta salads
  • Try nonalcoholic spritzers – forget the empty calories and blend frozen berries or fruit for a refreshing drink
  • Focus on vegetables – make vegetables the center of your meal and minimize your meat and animal protein
  • Grill to get the fat out – grilling does let some fat drip off, lowering fat and calorie counts
  • Figure in fruit – forget fattening desserts and go for fruit to satisfy your post-meal sweet tooth

Bottom line? Just because you’re on vacation – doesn’t mean your diet has to be too!
