Clean Eating & Vegetarian Recipes for Labor Day

Happy Thursday everyone!

How is it the Thursday before Labor day?  Weren’t we just talking about Memorial day weekend?

I plan to embrace every last bit of summer while I still can.  Fall in the mountains is beautiful, but summer really has my heart.

It’s been such a great summer and I’ve simply loved some of the recipes I’ve shared this summer, so for Labor Day I thought I’d  do a roundup of the best clean-eating and vegetarian recipes from the past year.  It’s a great way to start your cookout plans for the weekend.  I know all things apple and pumpkin are just around the corner, but for now these are some of the recipes I’ll be working on through the weekend!

    Seriously, this entire list. Yes I’m just going to eat my way through this post this weekend. Starting with that watermelon salad. Gotta make my grocery list!

    Those stuffed cannolis are calling my name…we’re going to a BBQ at the lake this weekend. Hope to try and make these!

    I think this was a great idea to put these recipes together.
    I think it is good for your regular blog followers and for
    your newer followers.
    I like the picture of yourself that you chose to use for
    your opening page and for your blog responses.
    It’s a nice friendly ” Julie shot “

    GREAT round up of recipes. So fresh and delicious-looking. Not such a great idea for me to come to your blog when I’m feeling hungry, however! Haha!

      Haha! Thanks! I feel the same way about your blog!

    I want to roll around in these. OMG now I’m starving. Even more so. It is 10:40 AM. This is not good.

      Not good πŸ™‚ Happens to me all the time πŸ™‚

    These all look delicious! I still have my eye on that blueberry crisp!

    So yummy! Love the vegetarian ideas – so great and easy to bring to a BBQ! No big plans for me… just helping my boyfriend recover from shoulder surgery… but I plan on sneaking in some beach time πŸ˜‰ Have a fabulous Thursday!

    So many wonderful recipes in one post!! I really will miss Labor Day this year. I totally missed Memorial Day and 4th of July. British holidays make no sense to me. Also, they just get tons of Mondays off as “bank holidays” and when I ask what is the reason for observance I’m told, “it’s just a bank holiday.” So many differences!

      It is very strange! And I bet you never see it coming! You’ll have to have a little Labor Day party of your own this weekend πŸ™‚

  12. ooh some of my favorite recipes of yours! this summer did just fly by didn’t it?!

    • JulieWunder September 5, 2015 at 4:56 pm - Reply

      I did! The leaves are even just starting to turn here!

    As yummy as all these recipes look, you will find me eating nothing but burgers, ice cream and waffles this weekend ; )

      haha! I appreciate your honesty! I just wonder if I’ll end up at Olive Garden like the 4th of July… πŸ™‚

    Yum and yes, please! These all look delish and perfect for Labor Day picnics!
