Independence day is fast approaching and that typically translates to BBQs and picnics. If, “what should I make?” comes to mind next, here are some recipes to get you through the holiday.

I adore sipping on this Jasmine Lime Cooler on a hot day. Or a Summer Punch is always refreshing. Lavender Lemonade gives an old favorite a new twist. If you’re worried about overheating, an homemade electrolyte drink (page 177 in The SIBO Diet Plan) will keep you hydrated during the day’s festivities.

How can it be the 4th without Burgers?! The secret ingredient in these hamburgers is liver, a nutrient dense high protein food. Or maybe you’re more of a turkey burger kind of person? And why not your burgers with a homemade BBQ sauce? If you tolerate some spice, these King Prawns with Spicy Salsa might be calling your name! Or get creative and make up a new version of a chicken salad.

Minted melon salad is easy to make but the light dressing kicks it up a notch! This colorful Mediterranean Zucchini Salad won’t wilt and the zucchini noodles are fun to make. The Orange & Olive Salad on page 99 in the SIBO Diet Plan combines sweet and savory along with a delicious mustard vinaigrette. If you’re in a rush, buy some cut up veggies and throw together this delicious Probiotic Ranch Dressing. Or buy some hard aged cheese, grapes and make these quick, savory Herb Crackers.

Chocolate chip cookies travel well and are everyone’s favorite. If you’re looking for something more patriotic, what’s not to love about Red, White & Blue Popsicles? These Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes also look beautiful and delicious! And bars always satisfy – everyone will ask for the recipe for these nut butter blondies. Whatever you decide to make for your 4th of July I hope you have a fun, safe and satisfying holiday!
