Fourth of July, 2007

Next week is the Fourth of July and time to celebrate. These are the days to splurge a bit and maybe eat too much. Not a big deal -- that's a HUGE part of eating healthy. It's really important to give yourself permission to cut loose now and then.

That said, you don't have to eat food that's not great for you when you're eating too much. Today's Salmon Salad with Roasted Tomatoes is perfect if you're having a few people in for a dinner party. You can do the whole thing in advance and finish off with the Strawberry Shortcake (maybe throw a few blueberries on for that red, white and blue look).

If you're having a large spread or need something to take to a pot luck buffet, here are some ideas for your Fourth of July menu that are great recipes that are great for you. One of my favorites is Salmon Steaks with Caper Mayonnaise. The recipe calls for this to be broiled but these are fantastic on the grill.

People love this Lemon Basil Orzo Salad and it's perfect for your contribution to the buffet table.

For dessert, check out these reviews of frozen yogurts or make yourself the easy Strawberry Shortcake.

Here are some other ideas for your Fourth of July:

Grilled Sage Lamb Kabobs or

Mike's Lamb Burgers or

Southwestern Venison Cheeseburgers or

Barbecue Chicken with

Roasted Corn on the Cob

Cornbread Muffins

Cole Slaw

Potato Vinaigrette Salad

Eat well, eat healthy, enjoy life!
