I don’t know about you, but I’ve basically been addicted to cherries
all summer. So #1 on my 4th of July list of must have’s is going to be a cherry pie! Women’s Healthy shares their easy cherry pie recipe from Top Chef Just Desserts
winner Chris Hanmer here
. He even uses almond flour so if you substitute the puff pastry for a gluten-free version or alternative, the pie will be gluten-free!
Just because it’s a holiday doesn’t mean you need to throw your healthy eating lifestyle out the window. Why not indulge in heavenly but healthy holiday fare? FitSugar’s Healthy Red, White, and Blue Recipes to Salute the Fourth

Apartment Therapy is here to help with their piece – Not Just for the 4th: Red, White & Blue Goods You’ll Use Year-Round
Will the 4th mean grilling for you and your family or friends? Check out these healthy burger recipes and plan for a delicious but not overly indulgent holiday – Guilt-Free Burger Recipes

are my favorite part about dressing for the 4th of July! 🙂 But I am a fan of stars
as well so check out the festive pieces below that I put together to celebrate the holiday.
Or you could create an easy DIY crown to wear for the day – fairy princess style! 🙂 If you’ve got a garden or can pick up some fresh blooms try WhoWhatWear’s Beauty DIY: Floral Crown
And what treat will I be making for myself for this mid-week holiday? Since I have tomorrow off I’ll be trying out Gena from Choosing Raw
‘s unbelievable looking new recipe for Blueberry Ginger Ice Cream
. Raw, vegan, amazing. I’m so excited I might not be able to wait until Wednesday night and might just try adding a splash of protein powder and calling it breakfast! 🙂
