Healthy 4th of July Recipe Roundup

4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. Cookouts and fireworks. I mean, what’s not to like? In general most of the food served at 4th of July celebrations isn’t exactly healthy. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ve rounded up some healthy recipes for a July 4th celebration to share.

I love potato salad. But not that grocery store potato salad. I don’t know why, but those premade potato salads from the grocery store just never taste that great to me. This  Vegan Rainbow Potato Salad from I Love Vegan looks absolutely scrumptious.

You just gotta have corn on the cob at a 4th of July cookout and the best way to cook it is on the grill. Recipe by Nutritionist in the Kitchen


This Festive Fruit-and-Veggie Salad from Veggie-Quest just looks like fun to eat.

Grilled-Lemon-ChickenThis Grilled Lemon Chicken is simple, summery, and delicious. Recipe from Chef-In-Training.

Cabernet-Burgers-with-Blue-CheeseBurgers don’t have to be boring. This Cabernet Burger with Blue Cheese from Chew Out Loud gives a plain old burger some gourmet pizzazz.


Can’t forget dessert, right? With temperatures here predicted to be in the high 90’s all week, a frozen dessert is a natural pick. These Red White & Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles are patriotic as well as healthy.


These US Flag Pops from Super Healthy Kids are a fun way to get kids to eat some fresh fruit. They can help make them too.

 So there you have it. Hope you have a happy, healthy 4th!
