Forget Cooking! 10 Choices to Order This Memorial Day Weekend

If your schedule is as crazy as everyone else’s right now, but you’d still like to make the most of the long Memorial Day weekend, restaurants can help.  Forget cooking this year; order up your Memorial Day BBQ feast from a local restaurant.  Whether it’s dining on the patio for two, take-out for the family or catering a backyard barbecue for all your friends, restaurants make it easy to enjoy the grilled barbecue flavor you love without the work.

When ordering from the catering menu, opt for choices that include lean proteins, fruits, vegetables and whole grains.  These might include:

  • Grilled chicken, boneless wings, sirloin or fish
  • Salads made from leafy greens like Romaine, kale and mixed greens (Request dressing on the side to add as needed for more control over calories, fat and sodium)
  • Fresh fruit salads and trays
  • Fresh veggie trays

Restaurants can help deliver the grilled goodness and BBQ flavor without the work!  How are you enjoying a healthier Memorial Day this year?
