I can’t believe it’s the long weekend in August already! This is my fave long weekend of the summer for a few reasons: it’s my birthday, we’re usually up at the cottage or camping, and I’m always with family & friends.
When it’s beautiful outside the last thing we all want to do is spend time inside cooking, but in our family, food is a huge part of gathering and celebrating. The challenge: healthy, delicious food that doesn’t take forever to prepare. If you don’t have a meal plan already, I thought I would share our long weekend menu ideas with you!
BBQ’d chicken breasts with Costco’s Kale Salad
Eggs, Plain Greek Yogurt with Whole Wheat Granola, Sprouted Toast and Fruit
Leftover Pulled Pork and Salad
Healthy Belgian Waffles with Greek Yogurt, Blueberries and Real Maple Syrup
Leftover Beef with Salad
A key lime pie is usually my go-to choice for my birthday cake, but this year I stumbled across a healthier version than the store-bought option. They were easy to make, and no baking required!
The pics above are from the long weekend in July – lamb, salmon and build-a-pasta: a few more ideas for your menu!
Have a great long weekend everyone!
