Joy shares healthy versions of classic BBQ recipes


That usual potato salad lurking at your family BBQ is undoubtedly loaded with fattening mayo and calories. Instead, give these perfectly-portioned potato salad bites a try. And definitely top them with my lemony dill yogurt for a ridiculously delicious treat.


Thinking about downing that entire rack of ribs? Think again. You’d be overloading your system with more than 1200 calories and 70 grams of fat. Instead, enjoy the same tasty flavor without any guilty aftermath.


Coleslaw, starring cabbage – one of the cruciferous vegetable superheroes – is a perfect addition to any meal. My low-calorie version uses low-fat mayo plus scallions and dried cranberries for color, flavor, and cancer-fighting nutrients.


Need a last minute side dish for a weekend BBQ? This flavorful and fiber-filled recipe can be whipped up in no time. Using just 4 ingredients, these Better Baked Beans are tangy, sweet, and surprisingly low in sugar.
