The fourth of July is a HUGE food holiday. Today on ABC’s Lowcountry Live, I covered all your bases with an appetizer, entrée, dessert and a patriotic drink to celebrate!
When it comes to your appetizer, keeping it simple is the way to go, especially if you are expecting a lot of people. You can’t go wrong with your chips, dip and sliced veggies. Opt for quinoa chips or bean chips for extra plant protein and fiber.
It’s not the 4th of July without getting our grill on- try veggie kabobs. I make mine with zucchini, onion, red bell pepper and lean protein of choice. Throw these on the grill and they are ready to serve!
Serve up desserts with benefits using better for you sweeteners like maple syrup, dates and raw Manuka honey.
Finally, we ended with a patriotic toast. I shared my Sparkling Watermelon Mimosas – so refreshing and easy to make!
