Fourth of July is my favorite Summer holiday and the perfect time to get together with friends and family. My favorite 4th of July holiday tradition is eating a casual BBQ, then heading off to watch some fireworks. If you’re anything like me, you haven’t put one thought into the food yet! No worries– I’ve pulled together Healthy 4th of July Recipes, in this roundup, to bring to your BBQ this weekend!
Healthy 4th of July Recipes
Red, White & Blueberry Kale Salad:
This salad from Confessions of a Mother Runner looks so refreshing! She added large pieces of parmesan cheese on top, so you really can’t go wrong. It’s the perfect light salad for 4th of July!
Strawberry Lemonade Scones:
Taking advantage of the Summer’s fresh produce is an awesome way to add color to your recipes. These strawberry lemonade scones look like a great side item to accompany a main dish.
Vegan Watermelon Cake:
Surprise everyone at your get-together with a light dessert that doesn’t break the calorie bank. This Vegan Watermelon Cake will impress everyone and bonus– it’s vegan! I love making vegan recipes to accommodate all of my guest’s diet needs.
Chipotle BBQ Chicken Skewers:
For the meat eaters in your life, and the main course, these Chipotle BBQ Chicken Skewers are a great twist. Sometimes chicken can be boring on the grill, but I love the unexpected chipotle heat.
I like to make fun table setting with flags, cute Summer drinks and activities for the kids. You can even get creative with decor that lights up! Your table setting will look great into the night.
These recipes are great for indoor or outdoor gatherings and your guests will love them! Wherever your holiday adventures take you, I hope it’s a fun and safe one! I’ll be making some of these healthy 4th of july recipes and spending time with my family.
