One of my family’s favorite things to do during the warmer months is to pack up a cooler or picnic basket and head out on a road trip to one of our favorite outdoor spots.
We love spending days enjoying some beautiful scenery, fishing, or taking a nice hike. Although, I do prefer relaxing with family under a shade tree when the temperatures start reaching scorching, ha!
I mentioned packing coolers and baskets so what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t share some great Low carb and Trim Healthy Mama friendly recipes for your baskets, right?
Gone are the days of boring baskets and simple sandwiches for those of us that try to eat healthier! So below you will find an array of delicious recipes that will be a huge hit at any summer Picnic or BBQ.
