How To Conquer A Family BBQ, No Questions Asked

One of the greatest challenges most people face when eating clean is maintaining a dietary lifestyle while trying to maintain their social life. So many of us run into this!

If you know you’re going to be attending a family or friend BBQ, what do you do? Let’s just say you’re new to not eating meat, your newly plant based, and you’ve just read all this science that backs up why you shouldn’t be torching meat over a flame. You don’t know what to eat, what to bring, or how to support yourself with your differentiating health views…
