I love the Fourth of July! I love the U.S., I love bar-b-ques and I love the summer!!!
Plus, I love cooking and I love that I’m now close to family, so I have people to cook for (and I’m not left eating everything myself)! I really want to make something festive for the Fourth!
I want to make something that screams “Easy!”. I mean, “Fun!” right when people see it.
Today is a rest day and I have yet to find a KB class around here (boo), so I just took a walk and did 8 min Abs.
Then, it was smoothie time! My recipe is pretty much always the following:
– Protien Powder
– Chia seeds
– Xantham Gum
– Water or Almond Milk (depending on what I have)
And now I’m chomping on some watermelon and blubes…
Questions: What are your plans for the Fourth of July?
What are you going to be eating? Share any must have food ideas!
Me: I think we’re barbequing with family and watching a fireworks show from their backyard. No comment on whether or not this is an “official” show 😉
Additional question: Anyone racing this weekend?
Me: I think my friend Susan and I are doing a local 5K! I have actually only done one other 5K in my life, so they make me nervous!!
There are tons of local races on holidays like this. Look around and I’m sure you can find one within driving distance 🙂
