In honor of America’s birthday, it’s time to salute our favorite red, white, and blue foods. Each of these colorful dishes contains a variety of vitamin, minerals, and phytonutrients that can help keep you healthy and protect against disease.

Many red foods contain antioxidant vitamin A and C, while many white foods contain potassium and the plant chemical allicin, which may help lower blood pressure. And blue-colored foods get their gorgeous hue from the phytochemical anthocyanin (also found in red foods), which has been associated with a decreased risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer.

Celebrate this Fourth of July—and your health—with these scrumptiously patriotic recipes, many of which pair well with these low-calorie Backyard Burger Recipes Under 500 Calories.
