One of the best parts about summer is getting your friends together and firing up the grill. Barbecues are almost as common during the summer as sunburns (don’t worry, there’s a fix for that!), but loading your plate with potato salad, ice-cream sandwiches, and burgers slathered with condiments made with sneaky sugar can make you feel bloated later. (Total buzzkill.)
Rounded up here are all-time summer faves—and easy food-swap ideas for keeping your plate full of good-for-you ingredients and not something that will make you feel gross later. And don’t be surprised if what you bring to the table disappears first; everything included here is delish.

If you want something to sip on while you soak up the sun, try this blackberry basil summer mocktail. Plus, what a dermatologist wants you to know about grilling.
