Never Miss a. A Main Course That Makes You Happy From hot dogs and hamburgers to steaks, chicken, bratwurst and ribs, meat is pretty much a given at any barbecue. Here’s What To Eat At The Backyard BBQ If You’re Trying To Eat Healthy 1. Choose a lean protein..

If it’s available, grilled, skinless chicken breast beats out barbecued chicken, because the 2. Fill half your plate with raw veggies and fresh fruit.. Before you. If you’re the cook, consider Ground Sirloin Sliders, tasty bites that deliver only 283 calories and 2 grams of saturated fat in each serving (two sliders).

Or. For calorie-appropriate portions, look for Applebee’s Lighter Fare, which are all under 700 calories per dish. Among the options are Cedar-Grilled Lemon Chicken and Thai Shrimp Salad. Your best bet.

But loading up on lots of red meats, creamy side dishes, and decadent desserts during outdoor grill season isn’t the healthiest way to spend a weekend. That’s where these lightened-up summer. Find out what BBQ dishes to eat at your next cookout and which BBQ foods to skip. I love the traditional BBQ foods of summer: burgers and dogs, creamy salads, yummy desserts. While BBQ foods tend not to be the stuff that’s going to win any nutrition award.

Here are a few you can whip up in a matter of minutes: Carrot and Radish Salad Carrot and Raisin salad Avocado and Grapefruit Salad Bacon and Avocado Salad. In no universe are fried chicken strips truly healthy, but if you’re at KFC, these are one of the better options, clocking in at respectable 260 calories for two. These lighter BBQ dishes are perfect for a weekend feast. Packed with healthy ingredients and lower in fat and calories, these burgers, kebabs, salads and sides are great for dining outdoors.

Ideal food to share is honey, fresh vegetables, citrus fruit, summer fruits, summer squash, salads, herbs (such as basil, fennel, lavender, lemon verbena and thyme), ale and mead and of course if the weather is good … anything you can chuck on the BBQ.

  • Nothin’ but love bro, but hopefully living in Texas will teach you how to grill properly. Buy a Thermapen and please stop cutting food open to see if it’s done, that’s a culinary sin, bud. Google “cross contamination” as well. Lock it up, bud.

  • Made the veggies with only peppers and green onions, had to substitute lime for lemon, but tasted great. I had a couple of small ribeyes I grilled with and made a sandwich with thick slice of big boy tomato, lettuce, steak and grilled veggies, sauce on everything
    It was awesome! I’m now in a food coma!

  • Hey Rem, you should definitely invest in a grilling thermometer cutting your meat while still cooking really does dry it out. Try it out it is a game changer when it comes to the juiciest pieces of meat.

  • Your cooking is really good. Your presentation sucks!:p I guess is about getting things done!:D. Love your video! Keep it up bro!

  • Try using a meat thermometer to check to make sure your food is done so that way you dont cut in to it while cooking. If you cut into it unless its cooked and rested then it drys out.

  • Hey Remington, love the content. However you usually don’t want to buy pre-marinated meat from grocery stores as many of them take the old past expired meat and cover them with sauces and spices.

  • Chef rem with the pot boy!!! Great video man gonna grab some chicken sausage something new for my rotation maybe put a mission carb wrap on the grill for your burger ����

  • Dude, you’re supposed to get the grill hot before you put the food on. Adds a nice sear. Also if you want melted cheese, add the cheese on the burger about a minute before you take it off the grill.

  • Hey just wanted to let you know that you’re one of my favorite fitness YouTubers. Your videos are really great and your personality is wonderful. After watching the video of your fitness journey, you’re really inspiring, a truly great man.

  • Remington, I’m opening a martial arts school in a month, and you are TOTALLY FUCKING KILLING it with these videos. Fitness is my main thing and you pump me up and push me to my max. Absolutely love the content. Keep rocking dude.

  • Yo Remington, you ever meal prep off the grill for the week? I’m all about the oven and crock pot grind but my chicken is super dry once I eat it days later. Love your videos man, always coming in hot with the new creative ways to keep the macros in check while keeping the taste �� at the same time!

  • So I’m trying to burn fat in build muscle I already lost 35lbs I’m trying to get shredded do I burn off all my calories or what do I do please let me know

  • Remington, is it possible to cut fat while gaining muscle and getting stronger? I’m asking cause my current diet is leaving me in a caloric deficit.

  • Did you drop the “perfect diet” idea? No judgement if you did, just curious if these were recorded before you started that or if they’re new.

  • Hey Rem, good vid as always. Maybe you could do a 3-way icecream taste test? Not sure if you have heard of Thrive Ice-Cream? Its for people trying to watch sugar in-take while hitting that sweet-spot. I had the chocolate one and it was yummy!

  • I’ve been watching your videos for a few weeks now man and they have definitely help me. I’m losing body fat week after week. Thank you for doing these! ��

  • I’m so glad that I stumbled onto your videos. Now I can take my meal prepping skills for my husband and myself to the next level! You are awesome RJ!

  • I’m always game for an ice cream taste test. Also maybe a video on doms and what you recommend for getting through the soreness after a workout.

  • Love to see the ice cream test!! Love watching your meal prep ideas they help so much, can you possibly do meal prep ideas for woman? Around 1200 1500 calories a day?

  • I would personally love to see a VS Halo Top because whatever major ingredient in their ice cream isI’m sadly allergic to. I’m limited to Arctic Zero and I don’t mind it sometimes but it can be to watery some days. I’m also allergic to chocolate so.. lol I’m screwed.

  • Oh wow, I just looked up what the striped pepper was and apparently they’re called striped Holland bell peppers. I’ve never seen them before but they’re so cool-looking.

  • Its a good thing I am watching this while doing my cardio because if I was home all this food would make me too hungry to resist eating a bunch of food.

  • Another great video! You’re great man, such a genuine and happy guy, one of the main reasons I love your channel! Here in Australia chicken sausages are everywhere!! They are so amazing!!!!! Great work Rem! Would love to see the ice cream vid

  • I love it you have no idea what subreddit is. this is the first vid of you i see, awesome stuff mate! no clue what subreddit is but i’m gonna be fucking making the burger (no anjofish paste, fuck that)

  • Your father i think is more ADHD. hes always bouncing around topic to topic yes, but in that topic, there are 10 other sub subtopics, and he is really happy during the whole thing. And the sub topics is what Sam talks about. Max you are the one who makes this, THIS. and then your dad finally realizes “heY iLl put some Av0caD0 oiL oN iT”

  • “Squirrel” D| Uuugh have exes who did that and sometimes it was funny but holy crap was it demeaning. Not everyone’s gonna be put off by it, sure, but damn if it didn’t stack up with all the other neurodivergence-related friction and hostilities.

  • I am so glad I found your channel a while ago. I just love your attitude and happy vibe. I was cheering for you from Australia when I was watching Olympia. Hoping to meet you next year when I am heading over to compete in the Amateur Olympia. You keep being YOU.

  • I would like to commend you on trying to watch the language even though it got worse atleast you acknowledged that it is a poor taste and a waist of words so thank you for that.. carrot # 4 what happened to the rule no man left behind

  • Hi Ashley great job on the video and everything looks delicious and I like your outfit cute and I like your hair style and lovely nails and have a great day ��

  • Dont change anything especially the cursing, its what makes the videos real. That’s one of the reasons I joined is that you talk like a regular guy in his backyard cooking.

  • I haven’t sausage in such a long time, even chicken sausage I find the sodium quantity to be to high. Have you found a brand that is low in sodium?

  • Not sure if you realize this but the audio gets pretty frustrating at times because the quiet parts are too quiet and we can barely hear you even after cranking up the volume. Other than that great video

  • I’ve been watching your channel for a couple of years now, and have discovered your vegetable recipes. BUT, dude, you don’t have a Playlist for vegetables or salads!

  • You make living a healthy life style sooooo easy! Your videos give me life! When I feel like binge eating I watch your videos instead for encouragement & support!

  • Where can I park to go to one of your restaurants? If little Italy is like Old Town parking is a problem. PS my wife really wants a California Burrito.

  • if you wouldn’t have mentioned about using F$§*! I would have never noticed since I use it more than you. Big ass carrots, nice touch

  • Sam the cooking guy drinking game!
    Take a shot for every F**K, every ASTRO!, every time a plane flies over, and every time Sam complains about Max.

  • Since when is bbq suppose to be healthy/low calories? This vid shows grilling not bbq, either way its not suppose to be for the calorie counters.

  • Hey Rem, we have a big camping trip planned for August long. Thanks for the informative video man. Helps lots. Keep them coming bro!

  • While visiting Tuscany, a few years ago, the side dish that was served with my Bistecca Alla Fiorentina, was grilled asparagus. To this day, it’s one of my favorites when grilling meat. I use extra virgin olive oil, fresh ground black pepper and pink Himalayan salt. Oh, it’s so good, even if my pee stinks for the rest of the day.

  • I just got a wood pellet grill today!! Can’t wait to get started. Gotta keep those fats down. I hope I can find those seasonings!!

  • Fuck that shit at a bbq I’m going all in did you really say veggie burgers get the hell out of here I want some kind of dead mammal on my plate or yard bird.

  • Love that you share things like this on your YouTube videos it’s awesome I should have you cook healthy foods for me but am a good cook my self I went to culinary school for 2 years but didn’t finish it but for nine years now still working on my goal to be a bodybuilder and compete

  • Nutrition is probably the most important in the construction of a healthy and beautiful body.
    Thank you very much for sharing this with us, as it is.
    I have not eaten anything after training.
    Aaaa, this is not bearable)))

  • Brad, I’ve been married 36 years. My hubby is a wonderful man with many admirable qualities, but he doesn’t cook. At all. I do the grilling even in the winter in Maine.

  • Listen up’s all about diet. Get that shit down by crash dieting if you have to or use a low-key but very effective fatburner like Ephedrine (Bronkaid) plus caffeine. Great appetite suppressant that strips water and fat..

  • Hey, thank you so much for my live lean starter guide, I’m so excited to do this, everything has been made so simple & easy to understand, thank you:-)
