Independence Day, or the 4th of July, is a celebration of the United States: Its independence, its heritage, and its people. However, the United States was not built with the help of hot dogs and potato chips. Native Americans and settlers relied on whole foods, such as melons, squash, beans, and pastured animals, to fuel them. This Independence Day, celebrate tradition; celebrate with native, seasonal foods!
