Celebrate Your Freedom with Healthy Red, White and Blue Recipes

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Fourth of July is a day to celebrate freedom with loved ones. We gather to watch fireworks in remembrance of past battles and to look forward to a beautiful future together. It is also a day when many American's default to unhealthy food choices. Why not express our freedom this year by saying "bye, bye, to that American pie," and replace it with healthy SparkRecipes that taste great without the added fat, calories, and sodium.
