ENOUGH ABOUT YOU
Let's Talk about MEAT
Fun fact--Americans spent $800 MILLION DOLLARS in the weeks leading up to Independence day last year...on BEEF.
It's true, Independence Day is the meat-eating capital of the holiday world...er, something like that. Let's just say Americans eat more meat than any other nation on earth and we eat SO MUCH of it on July 4th it kinda makes your head spin.
But here's the rub...and I don't mean, like, bbq rub.
BUT, BUT BUT.....
I know!!! Burgers are DELICIOUS!!!
I agree, it's just that my desire for a healthy planet for my children is stronger than my desire to bite into a big, juicy hunk of cow butt...
So with that in mind...I've rounded up some REALLY delicious vegeterian alternatives that you can serve at your July cookout this summer!
WHERE'S THE BEEF?
Vegan "pulled pork" sandwich made from jackfruit. WHAT?!!!
Classic AND healthy: Black Bean Burger recipe
Bring the heat: Cayenne grilled eggplant with tomato salad
Fire up that grill! Grilled veggie skewers with chimichurri sauce
A delicious twist on a classic Peach-Mango Salsa
Literally no one will notice there's no meat when you serve this Red White and Blue sangria
Don't know about you but I'm completely starving now. Oh--and one more thing...you are guaranteed to enjoy these recipes more when your child is wearing an adorable and ETHICALLY MADE outfit from Beya Made!SHOP 4TH OF JULY OUTFITS
That's all I got for today! If you have any other suggestions I should add here, SEND ME A NOTE!
