In the 6th episode of the Mile Markers Show, Mike and Derek serve up some tips for having a healthy cookout that extend well beyond just the food.  Memorial Day weekend is coming up, which means cookout weather is upon us and many truckers will be working the grill very soon.  This episode will make sure you get the most out of your next cookout without derailing your health goals for 2013.

During this podcast, Mike and Derek review some healthy substitutions you can make without straying too far from the traditional burgers and dogs cookout theme.  They also dive into other things that come along with cookouts such as safe driving habits during holiday weekend travel and making the most of your time with family/friends while home. 

After listening to this episode, you'll be armed with tips for sharing the road with semis from our friends at Driver Solutions that will help you make it home safely.  And once you're home, you’ll be ready to take charge of the next cookout menu with some healthy options that you know will still taste great. 

Thanks again to Driver Solutions for sponsoring this special Memorial Day episode.  Again, be sure to take a moment to check out this awesome inforgraphic they put together on sharing the road with semis.
