Welcome to Day 8 of the Summer Kick-Off Challenge!

There are only 2 days left of the sugar-free challenge, and a week until Independence Day (at least for the U.S.). Today’s sample menu will feature a few of my favorite patriotic Independence Day treats, full of red, white and blue!

Here is today’s red white and blue menu:

Breakfast: Patriotic Baked Oatmeal

Lunch: Heart Stopping Chicken Salad. Nothing like some old-fashioned chicken salad for a picnic on the 4th!

Snack: Cool off after the parade with some popsicles. Make them extra-patriotic by making blueberry, banana, and strawberry popsicles. You can layer them, too, by freezing one layer of fruit at a time.

Dinner: The 4th is nothing without a good barbeque! Grilled corn on the cob, fresh green beans, burgers, fries, barbeque! Serve it with a side of Sugar-Free Barbeque sauce.

Dessert: Patriotic Banana Cream Pie with Chocolate Crust.

Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:

What are your plans for Independence Day? Or if you live outside of the United States, what are your plans for the weekend?

Tweet or Instagram your sugar-free meals with the hashtag #sfchallenge. You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter, where I will be posting my daily sugar-free eats.

Also, post about some of your favorite sugar-free meals in the Sugar-Free Food Forum, and  chat with other challengers in the Free Thoughts Forum.

  1. Right now I’m enjoying the sounds of the fireworks. :) We had a BBQ with some friends earlier — it was a lot of fun. :)
