How to Avoid Overeating at a BBQ
I don't have a magic solution. We're in Texas. We LOVE our BBQ and when the dinner bell rings, we come a runnin'! Nothing beats the smell of smoked meat and laughter at a BBQ and like a lot of y'all, I rarely pass when invited to one. Here's a few tips to help you not OD on all those wonderfully prepared animals.
Have a snack before you go... just enough to knock the edge off should suffice. Eon't just show up with a gnawin' in your belly! It's not an eating contest.... right? Definitely not!
Skipping meals leads to overeating later in the day. Don't "save" your appetite for the Q.
Put down the shovel! Your brain is 15 minutes behind your belly so take the time to savor all that smokey goodness & you won't get to that, "Oh my gosh I ate too much" moment.
Load up your plate with veggies! This is also a great way to cleanse your palette so all the different types of meat don't start tasting the same.
Skip the bun and wrap your burger in lettuce. We're here to eat MEAT! That bun is taking up valuable real estate in your stomach so why not skip it and have another rib!
