Memorial Day is a day to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Many spend the day celebrating with family and friends and spending time in the great outdoors (plenty of hot dogs and hamburgers included). If you are trying to eat on the healthier side, this holiday can prove to be a challenge. Save your diet and give these healthy Memorial Day picnic recipes a try!
Seafood, veggies, potatoes, sausage; what more could you ask for! This easy and delicious recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Your family and friends will love sharing this family-style meal. The best part? It only requires one pot. A great tip from Eating Well is, “For sustainably raised shrimp, look for shrimp that’s certified by an independent agency, such as the Marine Stewardship Council. If you can’t find it, choose wild-caught shrimp from North America—it’s more likely to be sustainably caught.”
