You can take charge and be the change in your neighborhood - bring your own fresh chicken breast to grill or a fresh catch of the day. You do not have to settle for the status quo or whatever is served on Memorial Day.

4) Healthy Salads. Avoid the Chip bowls and the appetizers that are laden with cheeses and fats. Go for the fruit salad or the mega-garden salad bowl and know you are doing good things for your body at this Memorial Day picnic.

5) Zero Calories and Caffeine! Enjoy a little flavor. Now we’re speaking to the group. Want to mix up your drink selection and stay cool.
