Cinco de Mayo: 5 Healthy Recipes To Kick Off Your Weekend

Everyone knows what this Saturday is correct?  Cinco de Mayo!  To kick of the holiday early I found some healthy recipes that I thought everyone might enjoy.

1) Edamame Guacamole

 Not only is guacamole nutritious for you, but it also comes with a ton of health benefits as well.

2) Mango Salsa

 Mango salsa is vibrantly colorful and rich in vitamins and minerals, which means it looks good and is good for you.

3) White Sangria

 Livestrong tells us that even though sangria is alcohol, it is low in fat, high in vitamin C, and has a source of B Vitamins.  Surprised?

4) Yogurt-Salsa Dip

 I know what you are thinking, yogurt mixed with salsa? It is a twist on the regular salsa we know, so why not try it?  It is also healthy, so if you really want to go bold and try this dish try using greek yogurt!

5) Spicy Lime Pork Kebabs

 Who wouldn’t want to kick off their weekend with some pork, vegetables, and lime juice and hot sauce for some flavoring.  Sounds good to me!

Earth Day: Healthy Dirt and Worms Sundae

Dirt n’ Worms Sundae

Everyone remembers making Dirt and Worms for Earth Day in middle school and how delicious it was, am I not right?  Mounds of rich vanilla ice cream and hot fudge topped with whipped cream, Oreos, and gummy worms.  Does it not get any better than that?

Earth Day is this Sunday and I thought that I would find a healthier version of what we all know and love.

DietsinReview came up with a healthier version of this delicious dessert.  Their version features non-fat chocolate greek yogurt, Newman’s O’s for the ‘dirt,’ and mini gummies as the ‘worms.’  The calories, carbs, and sugars are cut in half.  So why not give it a try and celebrate Earth Day this Sunday.
