100 Calories of Picnic Foods

[ article under review ]


Shopping for picnic food for a weekend bash? The burgers, hot dogs, and other items on your grocery list may be higher in calories than you realize. But that’s not the case with all picnic foods, and some may have health benefits.

““We normally don’t think of picnic foods as being good for you, but many of them are,” says Amy Keating, R.D., a Consumer Reports nutritionist. “For example, watermelon is a source of potassium and the heart-healthy antioxidant lycopene. Corn on the cob is a good source of magnesium and potassium, and supplies vitamin A in the form of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are antioxidants important for eye health.””

So that we walk honestly, as in the day:
not in gluttony, and drunkenness,
neither in chambering and wantonness,
nor in strife and envying.

Romans 13:13
