4th Of July Round Up

Independence Day is one of my favorite because I LOVE fireworks! There's something so magical about watching them under a blanket of stars. It can be easy to derail on the 4th because there is so much food around, but you absolutely can eat healthy and still enjoy the day! I've rounded up a few easy meals and snacks that are delicious, filling, and healthy so you can make the most of the 4th of July! 

It's berry (pun totally intended!) easy to be patriotic with these delicious breakfasts! 

It's peanut butter AND banana, need I say more? 

Beat the heat with a patriotic açai bowl that will transport you to the tropics.

I love açai and açai oatmeal with a blob of nut butter and loads of fruit, hello beautiful! 

My absolute FAVORITE pancakes!! If you follow me on instagram you know that I'm slightly obsessed...or a lot obsessed :)

Stress free holiday dinners are my favorite kind of dinners. Easy breezy to make and ready in a flash now that's my kind of 4th of July dinner!

Who says you have to have a traditional burger? Swap out beef for lean turkey and ditch the bun for a portobello mushroom cap for a healthy and delicious alternative!

Nothing screams summer more than lemon so say hello to this lemon chicken! It's amazing pan seared and I can only imagine how AMAZING it would be on the grill!

Don't feel like having a heavy meal? No problem! Try this light, yet filling salad packed with berries and guaranteed to make you berry happy (hehe) :)

No cooking required with this bad boy! Whip out that crockpot and ditch the apron to go enjoy a day in the sun! A few minutes of prep and the crockpot does the rest of the work for you. Instead of heavy pasta lighten things up by serving the turkey meatballs over spiralized zucchini. 

Make room for dessert because these healthy treats are sure to make your mouth water!

Apples may be seen as a fall thing, but apple chips are great any time of the year! Plus apple chips are much healthier (and way tastier) than regular potato chips, and they're totally perfect for a picnic! 

Need something a bit hardier, but don't want to go overboard? Try this double chocolate peanut butter microwave cake for one that is sure to satisfy that sweet tooth! Not to mention for only 105 calories feel free to add some yummy toppings!

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!! God Bless!!
