April showers bring May flowers, and May flowers bring more time outdoors, camping, family get-togethers, and picnics. May also brings Memorial Day, a time when many family and friends gather to honor those who gave their life serving our country and fighting for our freedom and way of life. This Memorial Day, when you gather with family and friends, take along not only a heart of gratitude, but also healthy snacks from Dippin’ Stix for your cookouts.

 

Memorial Day weekend, weather permitting, seems to be the start of barbecuing outdoors, gathering with family and friends, and taking in the savory flavors of food on the grill. Incorporate healthy foods and snacks into your summer barbecue menu and have fun doing it.

  1. Warmer temperatures. Let’s face it, in some of the mid-western states, the winter and spring season can be pretty chilly. When Memorial Day rolls around, typically temperatures are rising, making it the perfect opportunity to enjoy the sunshine, fresh air, and time outdoors.
  2. Fun food. Picnics are a time for fun foods such as kabobs, watermelon, and fresh vegetables. Additionally, having picnic tableware such as a red checkered tablecloth, a picnic basket, and coolers, makes the event even more festive and fun.
  3. Grab-and-go food. Finger foods and munchies such as fruit kabobs, low-fat cheese trays, and crackers and dips are always popular and easy to grab and go, especially for any younger children in attendance. Portable snack packs such as snacks from Dippin’ Stix are convenient and easy with no preparation needed.
  4. Fruits, vegetables, and dips. There’s no easier way to incorporate healthy foods and snacks into your summer barbecue menu than fruits, vegetables, and dips. They are not only easy, but popular too. Make your fruit and vegetable trays appealing and fun, and they are sure to be a hit.
  5. Sparkling fruit water. Instead of loading up your guests with soda and sweetened drinks, consider sparkling water with fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, oranges, or lemons. What a healthy and fun alternative to soda and sweetened juice drinks.

 

When you are preparing for your upcoming Memorial Day weekend get-together with family and friends, incorporate healthy snacks and foods, particularly fruits and vegetables into your summer barbecue menu with apples and caramel, yogurt, peanut butter, chocolate, or caramel fruit dips, and fresh, crisp baby carrots with premium ranch dip from Dippin’ Stix. Find Dippin’ Stix at your local retailer and enjoy healthy eating this Memorial Day weekend.
