For all of my American friends, I hope this is your last day of work/school before the holiday weekend! If not, I hope you’re at least feeling slightly in the holiday spirit. :-)I have next to no energy at this point (after a long week of babysitting and a long, busy weekend), so instead of my usual WIAW post, I decided to do a recipe roundup to get us all prepared for the 4th!
Thanks as always to Jenn for hosting!
Holiday picnics, get-togethers, and BBQs are classic American events in my book, but a lot of times, it’s challenging for people with allergies or intolerance to be able to relax and enjoy themselves at such events. With that in mind, I decided to put together a list of allergy-friendly foods to make and take to your 4th of July celebration!
My Berry Breakfast Quinoa – that counts as red, white, and blue, right?
Martha Stewart: Firecracker Ice Pops – replace the sugar with honey, and you have yourself a healthy and fun breakfast!
The Daily Meal: fruit flag waffles – use this as inspiration and make your own or find “friendly” waffles!
My Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers – allergy and vegan friendly!
How Sweet It Is: Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken sandwiches
Taste of Home: All-American Bacon Cheeseburgers (leave off the cheese for a dairy-free version!)
Southern Living: Best Fried Chicken
Chocolate Covered Katie: Totally Addictive Cornbread (egg, nut, dairy, and gluten free!)
Lucy’s Friendly Foods: Rainbow ‘Slaw
Party City: Fruit Flag
PETA: Baked Onion Rings – baked, not fried, and vegan!
Happier Happenings: Red and Blue Ice Cubes served in Sprite. Kid and adult friendly!
Southern Living: 19 Recipes for Sweet Tea
Guy Fieri: Fourth of July Cocktail
In Katrina’s Kitchen: July 4th Layered Drinks – for kids! Ok, so there’s a lot of sugar…but c’mon, it’s a holiday!
My Key Lime Sorbet – for something refreshing!
And there we have it! I hope this post gave you lots of ideas for your holiday celebrations!I probably won’t be posting tomorrow, so please have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
