Memorial day is the kick off to summer. And what a great way to celebrate by setting up the deck furniture, firing up the grill and enjoying some tasty bites.  You can stay healthy while still having great food.  I'm torn between the Chimichurri Steak (my new obsession) and the Tequila Grilled Shrimp.  But I'm sure the White Sangria Recipe with Strawberries are on my menu!  Check out your healthy options and let me know what you tried for your Memorial Day celebration.
