Makeovers for Cookout Classics
We Americans love summertime picnics and cookouts. In parks, on beaches, at lakes and reservoirs -- even in our backyards, we picnic as long as the sun shines.
When Europeans picnic, they pull out some fruit, cheese, wine, and a fresh baguette. Here in the States, however, we tend to go big.
At our picnics, you're likely to see jumbo bags of chips, pretzels, and cheese curls. Two-liter bottles of soda. Potato salad, pasta salad, and sandwiches and burgers on big, doughy buns.
If you have diabetes and count carbs, these summer eating fests can be nothing more than a test of your willpower. This summer, take charge and give your high-carb picnic favorites a healthy makeover....
