Dear Friends and Family of LapSF and The Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii,

Spring has finally arrived and we are very much excited to start spending our weekends outside being active. There are so many activities that you can do outside from hiking the trails, going to the park to play soccer or basketball, or possibly going swimming in the lake. All these activities are not only fun, but can also help you burn calories without thinking of it as a "workout".


With good weather also comes outdoor parties and barbeques. Have no fear friends, you can still partake in outdoor grilling parties, you just have to smart about your food choices.


Great Outdoor BBQ/Party Tips:


-Come prepared. Bring your own meat such as skinless chicken thighs or breast or ground bison to make a bison burger.


-Kebabs are a great way to cook small portions of meat and vegetables. Load up skewers with your choice of meat, onions, mushrooms, peppers, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, or yellow squash. Use small peices of your choice of protein for easy assembly.


-Steer away from pasta salads, potato salads, chips, and bread. Bring fresh vegetables with a greek yogurt dip as a healthy appetizer alternative.


-Make a refreshing non-calorie punch to bring to the party so that you can sip on something other than carbonated beverages and alcohol.


As you can see, you can still go and socialize with friends at a barbeque, just be conscious of your surroundings and bring food so that you are prepared for any situation.


LapSF Made a Pinterest Account!

We have created a Pinterest account to pin everything related to weight loss surgery from recipes to our favorite bariatric products.


Pinterest is a virtual pinboard where you can pin anything on the internet and organize them in a way that is easy to find and logical. For example, if you see a recipe you like, pin it for later use.


Check our page out today and Happy Pinning!
