Happy July!

Hey hey, Happy July! Did you know July is my FAVORITE month?? Why you ask? Well its my Birthday month! And I love my birthday. In case you were wondering.

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love July. Independence Day, Pool parties, beach parties, BBQ parties. ITS FRIGGIN JULY!  Unless you are a miserable bum. In that case…discontinue reading here. For you funbag party-goers, here’s a healthified potato salad to bring to your non-healthy friends and they will never know it’s healthy-ish. Or just make it next week when your back to reality because it’s good. I also added a super sweaty 4th of July at home workout (AHWO<–see that, acronyms are cool) for you to hit up before you hit up those fun beaches and BBQ’s.

 

Healthy-ish Potato Salad

20140702_073410

Ingredients: Makes about 6 cups

  • 2 pounds unpeeled potatoes ( I used Trader Joes, red, yellow and purple-so festive)
  • 1 cup (8 oz) plain Greek Yogurt (2% or non fat)
  • 1-2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 3 green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)*garnish optional
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •  4 slices of crumbled bacon(yup, bacon). Totally optional but, I mean….bacon, duh.
  • 2 boiled eggs, chopped

Steps:

  1.  Steam or boil whole potatoes until fork tender in center (leave skin on). Let cool. Chop into 3/4″ to 1″ pieces. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl mix greek yogurt, mayo, mustard and seasonings. Add remaining ingredients, leaving out potatoes.
  3. Add potatoes and stir to combine. Cover and chill at least 4 hours. Best if chilled overnight.
  4. Eat up!
