We’ve collected some of our all-time favorite recipes that are just perfect for your Independence Day get-togethers with friends and family. 


It’s a great time of the year for a celebration! It’s the middle of summer, the kids are off from school, the weather is warm, and the grass, trees, and flowers are in full bloom. It also happens to be the time when we, as Americans, celebrate our Independence Day—the 4th of July. And what do we do on that day? Most likely you will be entertaining or visiting with friends and family and feasting on wonderful food fit for a king.  


Sometimes it’s hard to come up with new or different menu items while keeping it on the healthy side. Sure, you’ll want your burgers, chicken, and veggies for the grill. Remember to get grass-fed and pasture-raised meat and chicken while choosing organic veggies to ensure you are getting the cleanest options available. But, what about side dishes and desserts? They don’t have to be your standard run-of-the mill options. It’s time to step outside the box!
