2. Skip the mixers: if your going to drink alcohol skip the sugary mixes like soda and fruit juice. Stick to soda water as a mixer. Click HERE for some healthy 4th of July Cocktail RecipesIMG_6116_1-1024x980

4. Leaf the bun: yes pun intended. Use a lettuce leaf as a bun instead of bread. Here is Pioneer Woman’s Version

6. Get sweaty: Burn some calories. Play pool or beach volleyball or any other game that gets your heart pumping.

Most important is to enjoy this wonderful holiday with family and friends but don’t use as as an excuse to overindulge
