Happy (Healthy!) Birthday, Brooks
When I was planning for Brooks’ birthday party, I made sure we had all his favorite foods on hand. Typical pool parties have hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, potato chips with creamy dip, and a sweet, sugary cake — I’m sure you’re thinking, YUM! I was, too.
But this was Brooks’ day, and I wanted to celebrate him and his healthy lifestyle. So instead of the typical fare we grilled steaks and salmon while snacking on great veggie-based salads. And you know what? It was still delicious. Who knew?!
In lieu of a frosted fluffy cake, we went the extra mile and built a veggie cake out of celery, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and some cream cheese!
We all had a great time and most importantly, Brooks had the best day!
