Healthy 4th Of July Recipes!
Yep, we’re already past the mid-point of 2010. It’s time to celebrate our country’s independence with food, drinks and general out door summer shenanigans. We can choose to go haywire or we can try to be as good as we can be by making smart food choices. Check out my 2008 & 2009 posts for some eco tips to enjoy your 4th as well as some healthy recipes to serve up this coming weekend.
Be sure to party smart but also, make sure you make the most of this summer holiday weekend! This year, I’ve put together a list of recipes that incorporate some of my favorite Sweet Leaf Tea beverages. Summer isn’t summer without some icy cold libations and Sweet Leaf Tea is a must have in your fridge as well as at summer festivities.
