I can’t believe that it’s already July and that summer is now in full swing! This time of year means so much to so many different people. To me, it means a schedule that is much more laid back,  days that last longer since the sun sets later, tree frogs and crickets that serenade us every night, fireflies that brighten the dark summer nights with little flashes of light, the feel of wet sand under your feet and the power of the waves as they wash over you during a day at the beach, the amazing taste of garden fresh fruit and vegetables, the feel of the warm sun on your face each day and of course, having a summer cookout with family and friends.

One thing that is so important when it comes to our food and cookouts, is to skip the store-bought, pre-packaged foods and opt for real whole foods instead. This allows you to skip toxic chemical additives and gives your body the nutrients that it needs to thrive! I’m making it just a little easier for you to plan your next cookout this year, by sharing this great collection of summer cookout recipes that will work for any summer gathering!

I’ve gathered these from some really great bloggers and you will find recipes that are grain-free and gluten-free as well!
