With a day filled with outdoor festivities from parades and fireworks to barbeques and cocktails, this holiday screams summer. To get your day going fueled with gluten-free goodies, here are 4 red, white, and blue options that are perfect for a healthy 4th!
- Red, White, and Blue Potato Salad. Yes, blue potatoes really do exist. These tiny spuds have a blue skin and flesh, and actually provide more flavonoids than the traditional white potatoes.
