WIAW: Labor Day Eats

Happy Wednesday, already? I guess having a Monday that felt like a Sunday, means the week goes by quicker. Fine by me! This week, instead of taking pictures of what I ate yesterday like I normally do, I decided to document all the delicious meals I ate on Labor Day.

Monday was also my first day back as just a vegetarian, and not a vegan. I’m proud to say I made it the entire seven days with no eggs/milk/cheese/ice cream. If I could do it, anyone can ;)

Monday I opened up my first can of pumpkin. I made myself wait until it was officially September to buy a can, and it was so worth the wait.

pink lady apple with pumpkin dip (1T almond butter, 2T pumpkin, 1T almond milk, heated up for 25 seconds)

Salads like that I could eat every.single.day. And just to clarify, that bowl is actually a serving bowl, not a cereal bowl. Go big or go home ;) I was going to just have almond butter with my apple, but saw that can of pumpkin staring back at me from the fridge. Combining them both was a pretty good decision :)

After finding out I didn’t have to work my call-in (yay!), and finishing my homework, I headed to the kitchen to make a few things for dinner that night. First up: dessert. Emily invited us over to her and Jordan’s apartment for dinner, and I offered to make something to bring. After browsing Pinterest and some recipes I bookmarked, I ended up choosing Alyssa’s vegan golden oreo blondies

And I licked that bowl clean since I didn’t have to worry about raw eggs (but let’s be honest, I still always lick the batter when I make non-vegan baked goods).

I also volunteered to make a salad, and chose Jessica’s triple berry kale salad. I only used strawberries and blueberries, and it was delicious. The avocado is what makes that salad in my opinion. So good :)


chocolate-covered raisins

After arriving at Emily and Jordan’s, I stole some of Jordan’s chocolate-covered raisins. He just a little bit obsessed with them.


kale salad, sweet potato biscuit, corn-off-the cob

Since Emily was making steak for everyone else, I went back for seconds thirds on the salad ;) But I still managed to save room for dessert.


blondie with vanilla bean frozen yogurt

Slightly under-baked = perfection. I suggest you try making those sometime. Vanilla ice cream or froyo optional ;)

Have a great Wednesday! Let’s hope the rest of the week goes as fast as it already has :)

Peace and Love,

  1. You are quite the baker! All of that stuff looks fabulous. I loove that oreos are vegan…hehe:)

    I’ve actually never put roasted veggies on my salads! Do you put them on cold or warm?

  2. I’ve been thinking about those blondies ever since I saw your post on instagram! I seriously cannot WAIT to make them. Yeeee!
    And I love that kale salad recipe. It sounds like you all had a fun night together. (:
