The 7 Best Healthy Memorial Day Recipes

The 7 Best Healthy Memorial Day Recipes

The unofficial start of summer is nearly here! Memorial Day is the first long weekend just before the summer solstice and now that the country is emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, people are ready to gather and celebrate. There’s no better weekend to socialize outside and make delicious food than Memorial Day Weekend. That’s why this article brings you seven amazing, healthy recipes that will surprise your taste buds with bold flavors. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expressed optimism about the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend in regards to COVID-19. Health experts believe that there won’t be a massive surge in COVID-19 cases, given the current vaccination rates in America. Previous holiday weekends, however, brought large surges and endangered the lives of many.

COVID-19 isn’t the only worry over Memorial Day Weekend. Most people will abandon their diets and wolf down all sorts of unhealthy foods. According to statistics, there are roughly 800 hotdogs eaten every second on Memorial Day. That means that about 72 million hotdogs are eaten on this day alone. Perhaps this is because roughly 57% of people engage in barbecuing, but maybe it’s because Americans are inherently unhealthy. 

If you are looking to stay on track with your health goals, however, there are tasty recipes you can make that won’t cause a caloric overload. Make the following recipes this coming holiday weekend and let us know how you like them. 

Cowboy Caviar

The name most likely comes from the fact that cowboys live in Texas and this is a common side dish/dip in the state. The black beans represent the “caviar” in this dish. We apologize that there isn’t a better explanation.
