CELEBRATING THE 4TH THE ALTERNATIVE WAY

I have been busily perusing the Internet for some alternative ideas for the 4th of July.
Why do holidays have be food disasters.. or rather why do we let them be food disasters.. why not find alternatives for exciting recipes and ideas. I know folks have family favorites and that is well and good.. but by adjusting a few ingredients perhaps one does not have to sacrifice taste for calories. So I went on my little journey starting here.. BEYOND THE BURGER and there is normally a caloric disaster .. but here is a recipe I am sure that will delight..POTATO SALAD and how about this for an alternative for dessert.. RASBERRY-BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE PIE all it really takes is a little creativity.. and the most amazing thing is .. people usually enjoy the healthier choices as opposed to the not so healthy ones.. I seriously doubt people notice the difference and I dare say they enjoy the lower calorie versions better than the goey fat laden original ones.
Will post more 4th of july recipes Tomorrow.
If you check out the award post below..Cammy who I awarded .. got awarded twice she made a good suggestion... I am going to award 5 more of my blog friends listed in this post.. for all information please refer to the post titled THIS IS SO NICE
