Keeping It Low Carb on July 4th

Colette's Blog

June 4, 2020

Here’s a 4th of July menu with plenty of low carb options that will take your backyard barbecue, picnic or potluck to the next level.

To start, you can hit the deli for easy appetizers, such as cheese and meat platters, veggie trays, relish trays or an antipasto tray with olives, peppers, marinated artichoke hearts and mushrooms, plus fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. These hearty snacks will keep your appetite in check when you’re faced with a bowl of salty chips, a serving of potato salad or a bite of a brownie.

Next, take your pick from these low carb burger, brat and rib recipes, as well as low carb salads and sides. Last, but not least? Dessert!
