Schools are out, work has slowed down a bit for many of us, and it’s a great time to do picnics or barbecues with friends and family.
But at the same time, we want to stay SLIM, to FEEL and LOOK our best.
If you’re trying to stay healthy this summer (maybe you’ve even committed to doing a detox, or are trying to do a low-carb eating plan like Keto or Paleo, or just cut back on gluten and refined sugar), then making your own compliant dishes is the easiest way to enjoy eating out with friends while having food you can eat!
Plus, it’s a great opportunity to have fun in the kitchen, and impress your friends!
So I’ve put together some of my favorite “summer picnic” recipes, which are mostly detox-friendly, or adaptable, and free of processed sugar, gluten, grains and dairy. At the same time, they are crowd pleasers!
Chicken Zucchini Burgers
Kale & Avocado Pancakes
Simple Holiday Salad (great for ALL holidays and large meals!)
Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad
Sweet Potato Tater-Tots
Crispy Roasted Chickpeas
Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Brownies
*see below for recipes
In addition to being DELICIOUS, these recipes are easy to make, and extremely healthy (no gluten, no grains, no junk!) to keep you looking your best in your bathing suit all summer!
Give them a shot and please SHARE your thought/comments, or maybe share your own favorite healthy picnic dish(es)!
Love, Healthy Gatherings and Happy Summer!
