5 Healthy Recipes to Try this August

Summer is NOT over yet! Celebrate the last month of the season with this unique and tasty twist on summer classics.  All these recipes are healthy and delicious.


Hello! Hello!

August is my month.  It’s hot, I often get to go to the beach and it’s my birthday.  I love the long days, eating outside and hang onto every last minute of the season.  The recipes I’m sharing this month celebrate NOT bringing fall and all things pumpkin on too soon.  I’m sharing recipes using lots of fresh summer veggies, shrimp and even bbq flavors.   This collection of recipes will have you enjoying every last day of the season to the fullest.  Let’s all agree to put off pumpkins until September 1st… ok?

In case you are just joining me, this post is part of a series where I dig through the 8 years of Running in Skirt archives to find some new recipes for you to try.  Even with this blog, I know I can get in a rut and make the same thing week after week.  So once a month I put together a list of 5 EASY new recipes to try.  I always include a couple of great dinner ideas in the mix so you can finally serve something new.  It’s only 5 recipes because I feel like that’s a pretty attainable list for most of us.

If you are getting bored with making the same things… START HERE!

Cajun Shrimp Burgers

This recipe is a fun twist on a recipe from one of my favorite Hilton Head restaurants, Red Fish.  It’s a super delicious shrimp burger topped with a  healthy cajun sauce.  If you haven’t jumped on the shrimp burger train yet… just do it!

Vegetarian Zucchini Lasagna

Did you end up with a bunch of extra zucchini in the garden?  Try my No Noodle Vegetarian Zucchini Lasagna which uses zucchini instead of pasta making it low carb and gluten-free.



BBQ Chickpeas

Is there anything more summery than BBQ?  This recipe uses that classic flavor from chips and put in on healthier chickpeas.  It’s surprisingly tasty and easy to recreate.
