Last-Minute Memorial Day Recipe Roundup

Spiralized Recipes for Memorial Day

As you probably know, tomorrow is Memorial Day. Who doesn’t love Memorial Day? It’s the unofficial start of summer – pools open, weekend barbecues begin and it’s socially acceptable to wear white.

Last summer was the first summer Lu and I lived together. Bless his heart, he spent every weekend with me holed up in coffee shops, working on my Inspiralized business plans, while everyone else was outside enjoying the gorgeous summer weather. He kept me company while I blogged all day long on a Saturday, when everyone else was out having drinks on patios, swimming in pools and on the beach.

Now that I’ve found my groove, my weekends this summer will be more free and I’m excited to drive down the shore (yes, we call it the shore) and finally enjoy the beautiful pool our building has.

Most importantly, I’m ready to throw some barbecues, full of Inspiralized food!

If you’re last-minute like me and still need to plan your Memorial Day spread tomorrow, why not impress your guests with some of these healthy, spiralized recipes that are group-friendly.


If you’re serving a spiralized pasta dish, make sure it doesn’t have a heavy sauce (like a tomato). Serve pastas with light dressings or olive oil-based sauces.

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? #liketkit

I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
