4th of July Goodies

The 4th of July is the second best holiday to my family…first being Christmas (of course!). We LOVE red, white & blue everything! We noosh on tons off food coloring, bbq, play outside until we are hot and sweaty and then scream at the fireworks. I am always on the hunt for some new recipes and any way to turn our tongues blue. Here are some new ones that I am going to try and a few that we have to have every year.

Happy 4th of July 2016 to you and your family…hope it’s the best one yet!!!

Weekly Clean Eats ~ 2

I hope you are enjoying the weekly clean eats. I am having fun trying new recipes myself. What do you think? Are you trying some of them? Would love for you to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried any of the recipes I have posted or what looks good to you. Have a great week!

1With summer here this looks so cool and refreshing. Perfect for a casual evening. Maybe add a piece of grilled chicken. Then you have room for that dessert.

***photo credit & recipe3This looks perfect to keep the kitchen from heating up. Add a tossed salad and you have a complete healthy meal!

***photo credit & recipe4I love anything made with avocados and have recently become a fan of veggie noodles. This you can make using pasta or veggie noodles and both are a healthy option. Again, add some of your favorite meat on the side and you have a great meal. I’m thinking some grilled salmon would be awesome.

***photo credit & recipe6I am excited to try this one! I mean pasta and pizza…what a great combination!
