Healthy July 4th Recipes

Check out these lovely and gluten free July 4th recipes. My favorite is the star spangled cream tart.


What are your plans today? I have friends coming over to BBQ. One of my buddies is following a paleo diet so I made sugar free ketchup for her burger. Also on the menu Laura’s Sour Slaw, vegan and paleo friendly.

Here is her recipe…

Sour Slaw


  • 1 head green cabbage, 1/4 slices
  • 4 sprigs fresh oregano (or 2 tsp dried)
  • 1 Jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste


Put all ingredients in a pot and cook over medium-low heat, no lid, for 20 minutes. Serve warm or cold. Delicious by itself or on a burger or baked potato.

Happy 4th of July!
