Summer and Trouble Spots

Summer finally decided to show up in New Jersey. As thankful as I am for longer warmer days, I'm also more acutely aware of my thighs. Between shorts, skirts, and bathing suits there is a constant reminder of my trouble spots at all moments.

And there's ice cream. All summer long. Yet another trouble spot.

OK. Enough of trouble spots.

Summer also means lots of fresh veggies. It also means grilling and barbecues with family and friends. Don't stay away- it's good for the soul to be around family and friends and enjoy the time together. But yes, there can be temptations and trouble spots.

Here's how you survive and keep up the progress so those trouble spots don't become too much trouble.

  • Use sugar free spice rubs and sauces. Here are some we like.
  • Bring your own protein (B.Y.O.P.) to throw on the grill.
  • Grill your veggies, and don't be afraid of the grill grates. Slice your veggies according to whatever phase you are on and place in the center of a large piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning. Fold sides of packet together and then fold edges. Grill for about 40 minutes, and you will get this. YUM!
