Happy and Healthy July 4th! Grilled Blackberry, Strawberry, Basil and Brie Crisps

Happy 4th of July! As you head out on your travels this weekend, don’t forget to plan your contribution to the cookout! I’m crazy about this Independence Day Inspired appetizer – Grilled Blackberry, Strawberry, Basil and Brie Pizza Crisps. Yum! As far as preparation is concerned, it won’t take long plop these healthy pizza crisps down next to the grill master’s spread! One suggestion – be sure to pick a gluten free or whole wheat pizza dough as your base for the crisps! Altogether, this dish makes for a patriotic and yummy statement for your holiday celebration! Enjoy and Happy Cooking!

Patriotic Fruit Parfaits

While crafting menus for next week’s big celebration, consider topping off your July 4th picnic with a patriotic dessert to stun the crowd. Red, White, and Blue never looked so tasty! Better yet, these desserts can be served ready-to-eat in mason jars, making them the perfect portable party treat! My only recommendation is to make a few healthy swaps as far as ingredients are concerned. You’ll get your fair share of Vitamin C with the berries, but the heavy cream and angel food cake may be pushing it a little… Opt for greek yogurt instead of the cream, and consider a healthy recipe to make your own angel food cake to crumble as the base of your parfait. These little swaps will slash the calories without it sacrificing it’s status as a crowd favorite. Enjoy the glow of the fireworks next week and time with family and friends!
