Barbecue season is here! But wait, you’ve worked so hard these past several weeks on whipping your body into insane shape. Not to worry, you can still eat your favorite summer dishes and continue looking and feeling great. Sports Dietitian, Rebecca Scritchfield shares two of her healthy BBQ favorites.

Festive Red White and Blue Burger

Who doesn’t love an All American Burger? These days you can make one with lean ground beef, bison, turkey and more protein rich sources. Add a whole wheat or gluten free bun and the combo provides the perfect balance of carbohydrates to replace glycogen from your ride and protein to rebuild and repair muscles so you’ll be stronger for your next workout.

Healthy Summer Slaw

A slight tweak to the staple by swapping out the mayo and adding lime and cilantro turns cole slaw into a vegetarian side that’s both healthy and refreshing! Cabbage supports digestive health with fiber providing 1.5 grams of fiber per 1 cup serving.

Despite our best intentions, we don’t always get what we need through a healthy diet. For a great way to support energy metabolism through the summer, try vitafusion B12 – each serving of two delicious gummies provides an excellent source of this important nutrient.** A sweet way to kick off the season!
