Plant-Based Memorial Day Round Up


Happy Friday y’all!! It’s Memorial Day weekend, and you know what that means!! Lots of picnic and BBQ blogger round ups 😉

Well, that and some actual picnics and BBQs.

How are you spending your holiday weekend? Typical picnic? Traveling out of town? Staying home with the fam? I’m heading to DC for the weekend to spend time with my fiancé’s family— but I don’t think there will actually be too much picnicking or barbecuing involved. But don’t worry, there will still be plenty of delicious food! I mean, it’s DC.

So in the spirit of the holiday weekend, I’m sharing with you some of my favorite recipes from the blogosphere— for basically any kind of event you’ll be attending— even if you’re just staying home and relaxing. Dips, sides, salads, burgers, desserts, we’ve got the whole shebang today!

Hope you have the most glorious Memorial Day weekend filled with good food, loved ones, and some good ol’ relaxation!
