Memorial Day is just around the corner! This special day marks the unofficial beginning of summer and honors those who have served and lost their lives for our country. Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite healthy Memorial Day Recipes, like guilt-free burgers and hot wings, that you can whip up and enjoy outside in the warmer weather as you celebrate!
De-Bloating Turmeric Lemonade
Regardless of what you’re eating today, you’re going to want to sip on this refreshing De-Bloating Turmeric Lemonade Elixir! Whether you choose to indulge with a burger or munch on a salad for Memorial Day, this lemonade is sure to keep you hydrated and feeling great. Plus, ginger and turmeric keep your digestion strong, for minimal bloating – no matter how much you indulge 😉
Roasted Vegetable and Purple Potato Salad Recipe
This Roasted Vegetable and Purple Potato Salad recipe is a light and fresh take on a classic potato salad for your healthy Memorial Day meal. Here’s the gist: more fresh, clean ingredients with none of the heavy, clogging ingredients like mayo or sour cream. This salad will have you filled up on hearty veggies and beautifying healthy fats, that won’t leave you weighed down or sluggish. So you can enjoy your Memorial Day barbecue and feel great all day long!
Vegan No-Fry Cauliflower Hot Wings Recipe
Hear me out, Beauty: these Vegan No-Fry Cauliflower Hot Wings are a must-have for your healthy Memorial Day menu. They’re the perfect finger food to enjoy while you’re grilling up veggie burgers or sipping on lemonade. There’s so much flavor packed into these little healthy bites, complete with a vegan ranch dipping sauce on the side. Not to mention they’re made with cauliflower (not fatty chicken wings) so you get cleansing and detoxifying compounds and enzymes in these saucy flavor bombs!
Feel Like a Fungi Mushroom Burger
What’s Memorial Day without burgers? I’m referring to my vegan Feel Like A Fungi Mushroom Burgers, of course! Trust me, this recipe has all the satisfaction of a delicious, juicy burger without any of the guilt. Enjoy your healthy Memorial Day recipes and feel good knowing that you’re treating your body with the best ingredients on the grill. If you’re trying to limit or replace meat, you can totally treat yourself to this heartier, denser option instead. Opting for my Fungi Mushroom Burger means you won’t have to deal with the digestive distress or loads of acidity from breaking down that traditional meat burger. And who wants that? No thank you!
Feel Cool Cucumber Lime Jalapeño Ice Pops
Every cookout needs a little something sweet, if you ask me! And nothing tops off a big Memorial Day meal better than these refreshing Feel Cool Cucumber Lime Jalapeño Popsicles. Straight out of the freezer, these green goodies will cool you down and quench your thirst. Even better, these tangy popsicles are something the whole family will enjoy, but without the sugar crash. Instead, they’re sweetened with coconut nectar and provide hydrating and immune-boosting properties from lime and cucumber. Yes, please!
Well that’s it! Easy, delicious and healthy Memorial Day recipes that can be prepped in no time. Have a fabulous weekend and be sure to enjoy yourself!
Sending you Lots of Love,
Why do you usually eat for lunch ? Any animal protein or lentils and quinoa ?
Hi Viauroux and thanks for your question. I typically will eat a wrap filled with hummus and veggies and dinner time I will make salads and/or veggie stir-fry’s with quinoa, which provides healthy plant-based protein. I’m vegan and choose to not eat animal protein. Please visit my Recipe section for more information around plant-protein vs animal. Sending you lots of love! xo
