Summer BBQ on Ideal Protein

Summer Barbecues while on Ideal Protein
There's no rule that says you can't barbecue while on IP! Here are some tips to enjoy your summer favorites while still staying on plan:
Bun-less Burgers and Grilled Chicken
Enjoy the barbecue classics without the guilt! On hamburgers, grilled chicken breast, or even portabello mushrooms, substitute the bun for a crunchy lettuce wrap and still load up on your favorite toppings.
Wood Chips
Grilling over wood chips will add a great smokey flavor to your vegetables and proteins. Soak a handful of wood chips in water for 15 to 30 minutes, wrap them in tinfoil leaving the ends open, and place under the grills of your barbecue before cooking. Mix it up with different woods (mesquite, hickory, apple, etc) for different tastes.
Herbs and Spices
Wake up your taste buds by loading up on lots of different herbs and spices. Create a new spicy rub for your proteins or try grilling veggies with sprigs of herbs like rosemary or thyme.
Water Enhancers
IP's Tangerine and Mangosteen water enhancers are great for when you're craving those fun, summertime drinks. It also replenishes electrolytes lost while sweating.
Ideal Protein Popsicles
Escape from the heat this summer with your own Ideal Protein frozen mango popsicles. We've listed the recipe for these popsicles on our blog in a future post, here's the link!
