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

When dining in or ordering take-out off the regular menu, search for dietitian-recommended menu choices like these:
  1. Little Less Dinner - Tri Tip Dinner at Black Bear Diner
  2. Veggie Kabobs at Zoës Kitchen
  3. 6 oz. Sirloin with Grilled Avocado at Chili’s
  4. BBQ Chicken Taco & Tangy Tomato and Cucumber Salad at Cowboy Chicken
  5. Single Lobster Dinner at Weathervane Seafoods
  6. Jack's Barbecue Trout at Fiorella’s Jack Stack BBQ
  7. Chicken Breast Shish Kebab Doner Box at The Kebab Shop
  8. Tri Tip Salad at Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ
  9. Boneless Wings and Fresh Steamed Broccoli with Pita Bread at Quaker Steak & Lube®
  10. Medium Whole Wheat Hawaiian Pizza (2 Slices) at Seasons Pizza

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