30 Memorial Day Weekend Recipes

Memorial Day is upon us which means we are officially springing into summer! Can you see it? The succulent burger BBQ’s, the trips to the beaches, slurping juicy popsicles as quick as you can (before they melt all the way down your arm) and hammock lounging with a mystery thriller in one hand and a fruity cocktail in the other?!

Aaaaaah yes, those are the memories that stick out in my mind when the begging of summer rolls around. 

However, with those memories also sometimes come the worry of “what the heck am I going to cook/bring/eat at my family/friend’s cookout this weekend?!”. I know it can be easy to get stressed out and anxious about having to navigate the nutritional waters whether you’re at home or away, but the truth is, it doesn’t have to be a crazy struggle. Sure, you’ll be facing gobs of ice cream, wonderbread hot dog buns and gobs of questionable grilled meat that might be a little bit of challenge to turn down, but once you feast your eyes below and check out the incredible resource we’ve put together for, you’ll be brimming with easy recipe ideas that you can’t wait to make and share! And, that anxiety you were having earlier will be a thing of the past 🙂

Raw Paleo Granola

Raw Bowl’a Paleo Granola

Aaaah the Raw Bowl’a Paleo Granola. Has such a nice ring to it, don’t it? Well there’s more to it than that, actually. Did you know that…

When I’m feeling like lazy bum in the morning, my #1 go-to is THIS recipe? 

Why? Because this – every now and then, I get up in the morning, and I feel just sooo incredibly lazy. It’s like, I just can’t even muster the 60 seconds of effort it takes to grab a pan, turn on the stove, and dump in some coconut oil. It’s true! 

Last Monday was one of those days.

Sakana Bliss Bowl – A One-Skillet Meal

Cooking is easy.

Did you just quizzically raise an eyebrow and think “Yea right!” to yourself?

Ok fine. Let me rephrase that for you. Cooking CAN be easy.

Better?

Look. I know it might not be inherently easy because, well…there are the ingredients to consider, and then the chopping and the roasting, the boiling, the steaming, the sautéing and of course…the mountain of dishes left over after each kitchen escapade. Whoo! That was a mouthful (even for me).

Plantain Chips Recipe

Aaaah plantains. How I adore them. “…I would eat them in a box, I would eat them with a fox…”, I do so like them Sam-I-Am (Dr. Seuss, anybody?). No, but on the real, baked, fried, boild…I love it all. I grew up in a Colombian-American household (plantains are a staple in Latin & Carribean Cuisine), so they bring back memories of my Pops cooking up delicious Colombian staples likes Sancocho (Ox-tail soup with plantains in it), Tostones (double fried green plantains), and Maduros (pan fried, ripe, sweet plantains…basically, one of natures gifts to your taste-buds).

Crunchola Granola Recipe (Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Paleo & Vegan Friendly)

Cereal…something that even in my youth, I have never loved. If you offered me a choice between an omelette and a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the omelette would win every time, without fail. But granola, now that’s a different story! I remember waking up to the smell of my Mom’s freshly baked granola. Once my nose alerted my brain that the heavenly honey and almond doused air floating through my nostrils meant home made granola, my sleep-deprived, teenage body had a renewed purpose to quit pressing snooze and hop out of bed. READ MORE
