Fire up your Fourth of July

Today, there will be MILLIONS of backyards filled with MILLIONS of hungry mouths to feed. After all, the 4th of July is about being with family and friends and eating hamburgers right? ...and maybe a beer or margarita too. I don't know bout you, but I've been salivating over one all week. My goal for the holiday is to take this heavily desired and longed after meal and add a little something...well, healthy.

So...we're talking cheeseburgers. Why not add some tasty sautéed mushrooms? Not only do they provide you with essential vitamins and minerals, but they have a meaty texture which makes the perfect pair. If you're feeling exceptionally daring, replace the beef patty with a grilled portobello mushroom. (I doubt you'll be disappointed).

Ditch the cheese and pick up a succulent slice of grilled fruit for your burger. The sweetness of the fruit paired with the savory piece of beef all wrapped in a toasted bun will leave your mouth watering. Try grilled peaches with an onion Bubba burger. Your taste buds are in for a real treat!

For all you hot dog lovers, don't be afraid to try these same tips. Add sliced vegetables like, peppers and onions for a semi-sweet crunch. Be creative! It's Independence Day so, make it your own.
