Toast to a Healthy & Tasty 4th of July!

Summer holidays are all about spending time with friends, family, and celebrating our country. They’re also days of outdoor fun and grilling, which can often push our diets aside in lieu of exciting and filling dishes. But fear not! If you’re looking to surprise your guests–and yourself–with mouthwatering recipes in time for the festivities, here are the ones we’re planning to make this year: 

Black Soy Bean Burgers – What day in the sun is complete without delicious and juicy burgers? If you want to try something different this holiday weekend, give our vegan-friendly burgers a try. They look just like the real thing, taste just as satisfying, and will make your party guests rave about them long after the party! By enjoying these staples, you can cut down on cholesterol, unhealthy fats, and instead get delicious fiber and oh-so-much more.

But why stop there? We have even more surprising and inventive culinary twists. How about some side dishes you can whip up easily and take to your Independence Day pot luck or get-together? My favorite thing in the world is a good potato salad. But we all know what its mayo content typically is.  But, again, fear not! Give our vegan-friendly, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly Potato Salad a whirl! It’s creamy in all the right ways. And if you just wanted to make something simple–yet delicious–to make your guests ooh! and ahh!–check out our DIY Ketchup that’s packed with superfoods like chia seeds and uses maple syrup instead of sugar. 

And what hot summer day would be complete without that perfect swirl of ice cream? And you’ve guessed it! There’s more vegan-friendly goodness in store. Our vegan Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream is sure to hit the spot.
