Fireworks, the hot sun, and if you’re lucky – a barbecue and freshly made ice cream. But hold up now, no need for meat or dairy at this holiday celebration! Summer is one of the easiest times to eat a plant-based diet due to the wealth of fruits and vegetables available. You can grill any of these, pair them with some plant-based ice cream, protein options, and snacks that can be thrown together in a flash! Even if you’re going to a party and not sure what to eat, these meal and snack ideas will help give you some ideas.
