Between the heat and the upcoming holiday, nobody wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, right?
I thought it might be fun to pull together some easy recipes for you to enjoy this upcoming 4th of July.
Here are some of my favorites:
Lentil-Mushroom Burgers (to reduce the time spent in the kitchen, you can use canned cooked lentils and cook the burgers on a grill):
Homemade Vegan Fudgesicles (great for kids!):
Tahini Cherry Gelato (no ice cream maker required):
For even more easy ideas for the 4th of July, be sure to check out Vegan Delish, my recipe app for iPhones and iPads. I’ve even created a special category for Summer Recipes; you can download Vegan Delish here.
Dr. Fuhrman’s Annual Health Getaway:
Wow, what an incredible experience I have had at Dr. Fuhrman’s Annual Health Getaway this past week. I have tried to share as many pictures and videos as possible on my Instagram and Facebook Page accounts, but words really can’t describe how special it is to be here meeting everyone and feeling part of a health-oriented, motivated community.
It’s going to take a few days for me to process all of the information and inspiration I’ve gotten, but I will be sharing that with you soon. I do have some photos to show now (these were all taken with my iPhone camera, I can’t wait to show you the ones I took with my nicer camera):
Descriptions (clockwise from top left): one of the many breakfast salads I enjoyed this week, a picture from the healthy, vegan buffet line, one of my lunch salads that also included a variety of entrees, and the patio where we ate all of our meals.
Descriptions (clockwise from top left): we had a different green smoothie each morning with breakfast ( I topped this one off with some date-sweetened hemp-almond milk), the beach at Coronado Island, the Banana Flag Cake served one evening, and a watermelon gazpacho.
And, lastly, my favorite picture of the week because of my gratitude to Dr. Fuhrman for helping me take control of my health:
Thank you for reading! Have a wonderful holiday and week, and I’ll be back here on Friday.
