The 15 Best Healthy Memorial Day Recipes are absolutely delicious and perfect for your weekend BBQs! Each of these BBQ recipes are easy to make and healthy!
The unofficial kickoff of summer is here: Memorial Day Weekend. Are you excited? I am so happy that the warm weather is here to stay. I have so much planned for the summer and a lot of it involves BBQs and summer parties!
But, I have to stay on track with my health. The summer has a way of making me gain weight and at the worst time! It’s the extra beers in the beer garden or rooftop bar. It’s those super delicious s’mores. It’s all of the summer parties—some formal and organized and some last minute get-togethers. Summer is a social time but we can still eat healthy without sacrificing flavor.
I’m all about making recipes count and saving room for all the fun stuff. The 15 Best Healthy Memorial Day recipes have you covered for summer entertaining and weeknight grilling. The side dishes are amazing in the summer and we have a bunch of great recipes. We even found a healthy alcoholic beverage!! So my new summer goals include drinking it as much as possible and responding that it’s healthy so I need to have it as often as possible!
Memorial Day isn’t all BBQs and parties though. It’s also a time to reflect and be grateful to the men and women who have given their lives for their country.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend with friends and family around your table, grill, pool, or front porch. And, when you head to the grocery store, pick up the ingredients for a few of these recipes. You won’t regret it!!
