If you missed National Hot Dog Day on July 19th, you can also celebrate it today. Phew! But if you're gluten-free, paleo or on a detox, your food choices can sometimes feel limited when a meal includes a bun.

Try this healthy version of the traditional hot dog meal. Use a chicken sausage instead of the typical hot dog, a sweet potato for the bun and bake up slices of rutabaga for your fries. Have you ever tried rutabaga fries? I was a little suspect but amazed at how satisfying and tasty they were.

And Instead of feeling left out of the celebration (or guilty about your indulgence), you can nerd-out about your veggie intake. You'll get up to three servings of veggies and a super dose of beta carotene and vitamin C.
