Wellness: 9 Delicious & Healthy 4th of July Recipes

At Visual Therapy, we’re all about Mind, Body, and Soul. As we work with clients to line up their optimal wardrobes and help them to be the best version of themselves, we’re huge believers that it’s not the dress, but what’s in the dress that matters. And even though clothes can help you feel like a movie star, there’s something that needs to be taken care of first on a deeper level. Welcome to “Wellness Wednesdays”: our weekly feature to bring you tips for a healthy, whole and fulfilled life.


The Fourth of July doesn’t have to be the kind of a holiday that leaves you in need of a juice cleanse. Here, we put together a list of our favorite healthy, seasonal recipes perfect for a weekend of grilling, tossing and blending (with no “I-can’t-fit-into-my-Mary Katrantzou-dress” aftermath).
