Pulled Pork Dinner to Please the Crowd

You’re probably wondering what healthy sides for pulled pork you should serve with your next cook out. Before we get to some tasty sides to serve with your pulled pork dinner, let’s talk about cook outs.
When you have summer cook outs and parties planned, you may feel a sense of dread. How am I going to eat healthy with all this party food? First and foremost, I would challenge this belief that healthy eating must look a certain way. Having a good relationship with food is just as important as what you eat. Believing food is “healthy” or “unhealthy” or categorizing it as “good” or “bad” is not helpful. Instead, I would focus on thinking about what it is that you want to eat. What sounds good? What would be satisfying in this moment? How can you balance your plate to be filling, satiating, and delicious?
Let’s start with the protein. Any protein can work for a cookout, but today we’re throwing a party with pulled pork. If you’re making your own and need to watch your sodium intake, make sure to use our favorite no sodium BBQ rub!
