We scoured the internet for some of our favorite summer recipes! So if you’re responsible for an appetizer, salad, dessert, or if you’re throwing the whole shindig this Labor Day - we’ll help you get ready!
These recipes are not only delicious, they are SIMPLE (we don’t like long lists of ingredients or lots of effort) and they’re pretty healthy too :)
Appetizer - Shrimp Salsa w/ Baked Chips
This is a protein packed, low-fat, and super easy recipe! We recommend Beanitos chips or a baked plain pita chip. You can find the recipe from Skinnytaste HERE with macro-counts included!
Side Dish - Kale Summer Salad
This kale salad is LOADED with nutrients. Fruit, nuts, kale, and a light dressing to top it off! We recommend omitting the dried fruit and keeping the nuts to a minimum to save some calories. You can find the recipe from the Balanced Berry HERE.
Main Dish - Sweet and Spicy BBQ Bacon Hawaiin Turkey Burgers
WHEW - that is a mouthful, but they are worth it! You want a turkey burger that isn’t dry, then look no further! They even have a little kick to them. Pair them with a gluten free bun or a lettuce wrap to keep it low-carb. You can find the recipe from Ambitious Kitchen HERE.
Dessert - Mini Individual Peanut Butter Cheesecakes
A big problem with dessert is taking a piece and eating the whole thing, am I right?? Well, we made it easy by finding a recipe that just makes the pieces smaller. Self-control solved! You can find the super easy recipe from Healthy Food for Living HERE.
