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!

Kale Slaw

I am such a huge fan of kale. It’s truly so versatile and filled with so many health benefits. Check out my recent article on MindBodyGreen on the “Top 10 Health Benefits of Eating Kale”. Spicy Kale Slaw was on the menu last week at Award Winning Chef, Frank Stitt’s, Highland Bar and Grill┬árestaurant in Birmingham. It was so fabulous that it inspired me to come up with my own. I use a Dijon vinaigrette to flavor mine and added shredded carrots, broccoli and toasted walnuts.
