Healthy Memorial Day Recipes

Slide 1 of 66: Whether you're hosting a cookout with friends in the park or in a backyard this Memorial Day, you'll want to make sure you have a menu that's filled with impressive, good-for-you dishes and beverages. It's quite easy to end up overindulging and derailing any weight-loss goals you may have during a holiday, but armed with the right recipes, you can stay right on course.Samantha Cassetty, MS, RD, and nutrition and wellness expert, even offers up some better-for-you dessert tips that you can employ this upcoming holiday weekend. One easy way to make sure that you and your guests don't go overboard on sweets is to prepare mini portions of your favorite treats. For example, Cassetty recommends making mini brownie cupcakes instead of making a pan's worth of thick, calorie-rich bars."Just use mini muffin liners and bake until a toothpick comes out clean. When the brownies are ready, frost them, and then place a sliced strawberry on top," she says. "To make these mini treats healthier, use a brownie mix with almond and coconut flours, which have more protein and fiber than a typical mix made with regular flour."From small bites to start with to burgers, cocktails, and even dessert, here are 60 healthy recipes you can use at your cookout this Memorial Day weekend.
