So, July 4th falls on a Thursday this year. Most everyone has to work Friday, so it can’t be a late night.
We’re just going to hand around and swim. Eat something on the grill, and maybe a great salad from the salad recipes. And watermelon of course.
Then we head to a local fireworks display. We usually get ice cream and walk around town if its nice out.
I’m betting we’ll end up doing something like shish-kabobs. I’ve been looking for a vegetable basket for the grill ever since my daughter’s boyfriend told me that his mom just throws all the stuff into the basket instead of putting it all on skewers. Isn’t that a great idea? Except everyone is sold out of vegetable baskets. Never saw that one coming!
You know what else I’ve noticed? You don’t see as many ‘big’ people. I don’t know if its just my area, but it seems like people really are getting thinner! Have you noticed a change by you?
For a great red, white, and blue dessert – just put a mix of strawberries and blueberries on vanilla ice cream.
Ice cream you say? Of course! Its National Ice Cream Month 🙂
You know, eating healthy doesn’t have to mean giving up special foods. Its all about learning to eat in moderation. Eat healthy 90% of the time. Have one scoop of ice cream, maybe 2, but not half the carton. Eat responsibly!
We eat mostly fruits, vegetables, and protein. I guess that is considered Paleo. But we don’t do a strict formal diet. We do eat some bread, and yogurt and cheese. You don’t have to be so strict that you don’t enjoy eating. That’s no fun! We love good, fresh food. Its one of life’s great pleasures. And apparently, more people are catching on!
Have you tried any of the recipes inside the Free Members Area? Unlike most of the healthy fare you see around, these recipes are actually good. What’s your favorite so far?
Anyway, Keep it simple, be safe, and enjoy your day!
