Memorial Day picnics are an American institution, but they can be a speed bump in your quest toward a healthy summer lifestyle.
We set out to give you some menu items that will fill your belly with delicious flavors without making you feel like you have to leave your party early to get a three mile in before bed.
So, without further ado …
There is nothing like a good burger at a cook out, but let’s face it, traditional cheeseburgers are terrible for you. The answer? Our Citrus Pesto Turkey Burger is short on unhealthy fats without sacrificing taste. In fact, we practically guarantee that our citrus pesto spread will light up your mouth with so much flavor that you’ll be looking for other things to put it on.
Yam Fries are a great side to serve up at your cook out. They elevate the traditional french fry to something sweeter, more flavorful, and far healthier alternative. If you want to take them to even more memorable levels, put out a myriad of different dipping sauce—something to please every palate.
Nothing says the kick-off to summer like a juicy corn on the cob. What you might not have thought about changing the experience by changing up the seasoning. Sure, salt and pepper are classic and never go out of style, but do something different this Memorial Day and add a little Italian Basil Seasoning to the mix. You won’t regret it.
Healthy doesn’t mean you can’t indulge your desire for some sweets this Memorial Day. Our Fresh Fruit and Lemon Curd Tart with a Shortbread Crust will satisfy that craving while throwing in a complex texture and flavor profile just for fun. But here’s a quick tip from us, you might want to grab a piece early on. It won’t last long.
