Four Perfect BBQ Sides

Memorial Day is almost here. It’s essential to remember that Memorial Day is a time to honor and remember the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. It is a day to reflect and give thanks.

While Monday is a day for solemn reflection, the weekend before it has become the second most popular grilling holiday of the year. The weather is beautiful, and it’s a three-day weekend. We know so many of our customers will be joining friends and family to celebrate the unofficial kickoff to summer. With that in mind, we are sharing four great low-carb side dishes for your cookout!

Keto Cobb Salad On A Stick


We love the very concept of a salad on a stick! It’s a great idea to have a salad at mealtime. But eating a salad at a cookout can be a chore. More than any other food, salads seem desperate to fall off your plate. By skewering lettuce, tomato, cucumber, blue cheese and eggs onto a stick, you can enjoy your salad with ease! A serving has 125 calories, 3.1 grams of carbs, 0.8 grams of fiber and 8.4 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

The Best Grilled Sliced Zucchini


The first thing we adore about this recipe is that it calls for you to cut the zucchini into strips. Many recipes tell you to cut veggies into rounds and call for a special grill basket. Because of the long strips, you can cook these directly on your barbecue. We also love the marinade that adds wonderful flavor to this vegetable side! A serving has 93 calories, six grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and eight grams of fat. Get the recipe.  

Cauliflower Potato Salad


Potato salad is a staple of any good summer party. However, if you have blood sugar concerns, you know you shouldn’t indulge in it as much as you would like. This copycat recipe lets you enjoy the salad without worrying about spikes. You can get the same mouthfeel as a potato by cutting the cauliflower into cubes and cooking it until it’s softened but still firm. Then, all the other ingredients are the same. It’s an old-fashioned potato salad without the high carb count! A serving has 302 calories, seven grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and 27 grams of fat. Get the recipe.  

Grilled Spaghetti Squash Rings


This dish isn’t just tasty. It’s visually appealing and is portioned out perfectly. Cooking rings of spaghetti squash on the grill allows you to season and caramelize each portion with butter and BBQ rub. Then, add sauce at the end to finish them off. It’s a tasty, healthy side that few people think to make but could become a staple at your cookouts. A serving has 116 calories, 10 grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and eight grams of fat. Get the recipe.

We hope you enjoy grilling this summer and all summer long!
