Celebrate The 4th of July With Our Favorite Recipes

Celebrate The 4th of July With Our Favorite Recipes

July 4th is one of our favorite holidays because it is communal and free of typical holiday stress. You are there to enjoy company, share stories, eat delicious food, and watch the nighttime firework shows.

When it comes to most BBQs or family cookouts on July 4th, a lot of meats, fatty foods, and carbs are par for the course. Let’s change it up this year, so that we aren’t contributing to the country’s growing obesity rate. Not to mention, it’ll be nice to take it easy on your digestive system. There are many healthy dishes that boast tons of bold flavors, and we’ve got the recipes.

If you make the following recipes, let us know how they turned out for you. Tag us on social media so we can see how you celebrated your Fourth of July.

Grilled Vegetable Medley


The char from the grill adds another level of flavor to this dish. The basil vinaigrette helps to bring out the inherent flavors of each vegetable.

Grilled Eggplant Tacos


When you make this recipe, make sure not to slice the eggplant too thin. If the slices are thin, they cannot support the toppings.

Grilled Vegetable Kabobs


These grilled vegetable kabobs have everything that’s great about summer. Colors, bright flavors, grill marks, and some great summer produce items like mushrooms and zucchini. The herbs that coat the kabobs heighten the flavor profile and make for an aromatic dish.
