How to Make Summer Barbeques Better!
Your summer barbeque can be a lot better if you just follow these tips. I will continue in other posts to give you recipes for barbeques.
You can play a game of basketball if you have a hoop, or maybe even a game of badminton (not me I can’t pitch as the thing always falls down before I can hit it.) or even a game of Twister which if you are my age you will remember from your childhood. My mom told me they still sell it. As long as it is physical and moving. This is good because when you get active your body will release some endorphins which will increase your mood. And if the game is teamwork, that is even better as it will cause you to get closer to your family and friends. Just thought of an activity. If you have a pool get in a swim.
Do you want to put your guests in a better mood without outright telling them that is your goal, make your guests happier and have them have more fun and this will make for a better barbecue. What does the University of York in England say? They say to serve leafy greens such as a spinach salad or romaine lettuce as a dressing if you are serving burgers. The way this works is leafy greens have a lot of folate and that helps raise your brain chemicals that increase good moods.
Leafy greens aren’t the only food to serve that will make your guests happy and give you more energy for games. Serve up plenty of hamburgers and cheeseburgers, or even steak. Last Independence Day my sister served us filet mignon steak. (Hey, she’s the best sister alive!). It makes your dopamine and norepinephrine go up and these two chemicals causes you to be in a better mood and increase your energy.
