Memorial Day Getaway Essentials for Mom-To-Be

Memorial DayMemorial Day means a long weekend filled with family, fun, and food! This year, my husband and I decided on taking a few day trips; we will be checking out the Frida Khalo: Art, Garden, Life Exhibit at The New York Botanical Garden and then heading to Margate, NJ for a relaxing beach day. There will definitely be a requisite BBQ (or two!) in between. Whether you are getting out of town, heading off to the beach or planning to lounge pool side, it’s important to look great AND feel comfortable. With just a few maternity pieces like a caftan maxi, boyfriend jean and tankini, you can have a holiday weekend wardrobe that is versatile and totally on trend. Don’t forget the suncreen! -Olivia

Memorial Day Weekend Barbecue Recipes

What is red, white & blue all over?  Hopefully it’s your diet this upcoming Memorial Day!  Memorial Day is the unofficial beginning of summer & whether you’re celebrating it by hosting a barbeque, going to a friend’s, family’s or just spending time with your loved ones, we’ve got you covered on some delicious (& pregnancy friendly!) recipes you can serve up so everyone can enjoy.

This grilled guacamole is a new take on an old classic!  Aside from being delicious, avocados are loaded with folic acid, potassium, vitamin C & vitamin B6 which are all great for that growing baby inside of you.  It’s the perfect starter for both you & your guests this Memorial Weekend, as well as the best way to get that grill fired up!

Pasta Salad is always a good choice when having guests.  This healthy version, made with whole wheat pasta & lots of veggies is the perfect side dish to burgers, grilled chicken & more!

What is a barbeque without a burger?  This recipe is a different spin on the seasonal staple.  It’s made with chipotle chili pepper & cilantro, which are sure to satisfy those spicy cravings.

It is easy for everyone to save room for dessert when they see these bite-sized treats, sure to gratify, without any of the guilt!  These mini blueberry-lemon cheesecakes are made with Greek yogurt, making them a little lighter without losing all of the taste!
