Summer is here, and cookouts become a nightly experience. How can we make the best choices for a healthy cookout when we’re grilling out with friends and family?
Just in time for the 4th of July celebration weekend, Mamavation TV is going to talk about healthy cookout options.
What’s Mamavation TV?
Mamavation TV is a weekly show that is hosted by Leah Segedie that is broadcast live on Google+ and YouTube every Monday night at 6pm PST/9pm EST. Each week the show brings a guest expert, panel, or community theme that will encourage or educate in the topics of activism, food, fitness, sustainable living, life detox, and the Mamavation boot camp.

Our Guests This Week
Jasmine Jafferali — Jasmine’s passion for health and well-being stems from her own childhood. While her love of cooking and baking from scratch came from her own mom’s kitchen, Jasmine grew up drinking pop (soda, Cola, Coke, whatever) and hating her veggies. In 2006, Jasmine was diagnosed with a gluten, soy, and dairy sensitivity that explained a number of symptoms: weekly migraines, digestive problems, acid-reflux and fatigue. Freeing herself of medication and living healthy, she now makes it her mission to help others heal themselves through diet and lifestyle changes and has all kinds of healthy cookout ideas.
Liza Hawkins — Liza’s been blogging at (a)Musing Foodie for years with a goal of appealing to the everyday foodie. She encourages folks to learn more about making tasty recipes that are simple enough to throw together on a weeknight, but that are also made from scratch. Over the past two years, her point of view on the blog has changed a bit. Liza’s still focused on fitting from-scratch meals into her family’s busy lifestyle; however, she’s shifted towards food that’s local, organic and GMO-free (whenever possible) and has shared the journey on her blog along the way. Make no mistake, Liza’s a big believer in practicality. Their move towards this healthier lifestyle hasn’t been quick, nor has it been perfect – they’re about 65-70% organic/unprocessed foods over there, and she’s okay with that (for now). The key is making educated and informed decisions! When she’s not donning her foodie blogger hat, Liza is a full-time marketing analyst for a national brand and serves on several non-profit boards in her hometown of Frederick, Maryland. In a couple months she’s uprooting her husband and two young kids to a small farm in central Maryland (about an hour west of Baltimore), where they’ll live a mere 100 feet from her parents – a good thing. They’re looking forward to acreage, organic gardens and lots of chickens at their fingertips!
