Summer Healthy Party idea with Edamame and Roasted Corn Succotash and My Favorite Mock Cocktail!

I am super excited for this weekend! My little Sister Angie is having a baby girl and we are celebrating her Baby shower! 
Now since I am in charge of bringing a side and the drinks I am going to make a Ultimate Reset salad of Edamame and roasted Corn Succotash. It's colorful and packed full of protein for me to enjoy and hopefully others as well. 

I decided that since my sister can't drink and I can't drink that I would make a fun water bar and organic unsweetened iced tea! 
I am taking and creating a LaCroix Sparkling water tub with different flavors and ice and fun straws! 

Here is one of my favorite Mock Cocktails!! 
I love the Coconut Sparkling Water! It taste so good on a summer day!

Ok so enough about the drink! 
We are having a chinese auction so my two basket donation is going to be a cooler bag filled with my favorite clean eating snacks 

And a hanging "gardeners" Cherry tomato plant!

I figured it would be a great way to spark interest to 
clean eating as well as a healthy way to celebrate the season!

Here is the salad I am making for the shower! 

Edamame and Roasted Corn Succotash

Edamame and Roasted Corn Succotash 

  • 3/4 cup frozen edamame
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, cooked and drained
  • 1/2 shallot, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • Himalayan salt and herbal seasoning (to taste)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and arrange corn in single layer on baking sheet.  Roast for 10 minutes, or until caramelized and beginning to brown but not harden.  Remove and let cool.  Meanwhile, bring water to a boil and cook edamame for 5 to 7 minutes.  Drain and set aside.  Saute onion, shallot, and bell pepper in oil for 10 minutes or until soft.

Add corn and edamame to onion mixture, cook on medium for 5 minutes.  Add vinegar and remove from heat.  Stir in lime juice, cilantro, salt and seasoning.  Serves 1.
This recipe is great hot or cold and even better the next day! 

I am super excited for the weekend and I hope that everything goes smoothly and I can stay on track with the Ultimate Reset! Busy weekend! At least it will keep my mind off FOOD! 
I can't wait to meet Baby Bates!! I love being an Aunt!

  1. Thank you so much for these wonderful Summer Healthy Party ideas. All this party food is looking delicious and I’m glad that it is quite healthy too. I would love to host summer holiday party at some local New York event space and this party food would be best for my party.
