Memorial Day weekend is coming up fast. Which means it’s almost time to plan your cookout menu!
As you know, we LOVE to eat. But over the years, we’ve realized indulging in our old favorite foods just doesn’t make us feel good. Heavy-hitting allergens like gluten, dairy and sugar impact our vibrancy the most, so we like to find ways to up-level our old go-to foods so we don’t miss out on the fun.
We’re by no means perfect — but we’ve realized that we don’t miss the “real thing” because our healthy swap is just as tasty! This makes it a no-brainer to go for the allergen-free option.
And our kiddos love these recipes just as much as we do, which is a huge bonus!
For this holiday weekend, we put together a collection of recipes for your Memorial Day cookout (all our go-tos) to make your meal planning easy and delicious!
Download your FREE copy of our ecookbook, The Conscious Cookout: 13 Recipes for Clean Eating.
This collection contains all of our favorite cookout-friendly recipes including our best grillables, veggie side dishes, conscious cocktails, and desserts. All of these recipes are gluten free, dairy, free, low sugar and range from vegan to paleo!
To take more of the decision fatigue out of planning, here’s a sample menu:
Consciously Creamy “Potato” Salad: This cleanse-friendly spin on the classic uses turnips instead of potatoes. Turnips contain more fiber, vitamin C, and calcium than potatoes, with a texture that makes them a perfect dupe! Add in a delicious creamy and punchy sauce made with avocado, mustard, and lemon juice, and you’ve got yourself one tasty, cookout-worthy side.
Buffalo Kabobs with Beet “Pesto” Dipping Sauce: If you love beef, you’ll love its healthier cousin: buffalo. These buffalo kabobs are hearty and super tasty on the grill. The beet “pesto” sauce adds the perfect herby complement to this meaty main.
Vanilla Custard Fruit Tart: If you’re looking for a show-stopping dessert for your cookout, look no further than this gorgeous fruit tart. This tart is the perfect rich, delicious indulgence. Plus it’s gluten-, dairy-, and grain-free and made without refined sugar!
All of these recipes plus 10 more, can be found in the The Conscious Cookout Ecookbook. To get your copy, simply sign up below and you’ll get instant access to download it to your computer or mobile device.
With love and lots of grilling,
