11 Labor Day Recipes

I can’t believe this weekend is Labor Day! My 3 kids are in full swing with school already, and football season is starts this weekend. In Alabama, people are traveling to either Dallas or Atlanta this weekend to watch Alabama and Auburn football. In our state, football is a religion, and saturdays are truly about football, food and fun. Here are 10 healthy and easy Labor Day recipes that I have my eye on for this weekend, starting with this Watermelon Slushy.┬áHave a great week ahead!

Grilled Ambrosia

One of my kids favorite things to eat is grilled pineapple. Recently, I made this Grilled Fruit Salad, and it was devoured before I could turn around. This is an ideal healthy dessert option for Memorial Day, Father’s Day, baby or wedding showers, brunches or a light snack or dessert. Adding the coconut gives it a new twist similar to ambrosia, an old Southern favorite. Tune in as I’ll be on WMJJ Magic 96.5 FM Radio on Thursday at 5:40 a.m and 8:50 a.m and Monday at 5:20 a.m and 8:10 a.m talking about how to make this Memorial day healthier so tune in.
