Labor Day Party Menu Ideas for a Summer Labor Day Party

By Gail Leino

Labor Day is one of the last chances you and your family will get to enjoy a summer barbeque, and it really is a nice way to celebrate all the hard work you and your loved ones put in for the rest of the year. It was created by the Central Labor Union to give working men the day off; now, many people see it as a paid opportunity to enjoy spend time with loved ones! Here are a few catering ideas:

A menu you may create for Labor Day is barbeque ribs, potato salad, coleslaw, watermelon, and cupcakes for dessert. Any simple, tasty, picnic-friendly food that your family loves will be suitable though.
Broccoli salad is another healthy dish you may find for Labor Day. All you need is a 1-2 large heads of broccoli, ½ red onion chopped, 10-12 slices of cooked bacon broken up (substitute bacon bits), ½ cup of raisins, 1 cup of mayonnaise, ½ cup of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of vinegar. You just combine all of the ingredients and you have a salad to eat along with your barbeque.

Another great recipe is ham and cheese salad. You take 1 cup of chopped ham, 1 cup of chopped cheese (preferably to types of cheese, any kind), ¼ chopped onion, ¼ chopped red pepper, and 1/2 cup of mayonnaise. You may need to add more mayonnaise to make it creamier, but that will be your choice. You combine all the ingredients in a bowl until the ingredients are well coated with mayonnaise.

Dips and other salads work great with crackers or chips depending on your preference for Labor Day.

It’s a good idea to keep your food options for Labor Day simple. And just because food is fairly quick and easy to make, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t taste good too. Before you know it your guests will be coming back for more.

Budget Meal Plans

By Rachel Cotler


For most Americans, juggling life can be very difficult. First you have to contend with long hours at work, endless laundry, dishes,paying bills and of course your children who ask the popular question, "What's for dinner?". Grocery shopping, planning meals, and the preparation of meals take a lot of time, and usually by the end of the week you are so burnt out you end up feeding your dear family hot dogs and mac-n-cheese. Did you know that 63% of Americans are overweight and many people suffer severe health problems because of the food that they eat? There are several ways to cut back on the time spent cooking and preparing food for your family without denting your budget or preparing less than nutritious meals.


The first important step in starting anything new is to have a plan. First things first, decide how much money you can invest every month on groceries. Make sure you take in account all of the extra items you need for breakfast, and lunch. The plan I have in place is simple. The basic ingredients you should always have in your kitchen should be purchased from a bulk retailer like Cosco, or Sam's Club, where you can purchase large amounts of certain ingredients for a fraction of the price.

For all of your fruits and veggies, try shopping at your local farmer's market. You will save a ton of money and you are supporting your local economy. Now take a look at all the meals you would normally make in a month and find all of the common ingredients. You will probably see, to list a few, Chicken, Pork, Beef, Olive Oil, Garlic, Rice, Pasta, Corn, Green Beans, Cheese, Eggs and Milk. Then you must decide which items will store for a long period of time, that can be bought in bulk, that you can save money on. Shop once a month for these items. Why go to the store several times a month for groceries.


Write your recipes in chronological order. I'm sure you are wondering " What does that mean?". I mean write your recipes down in an order in which one recipe could flow into another recipe. If your going to have Sausage and Peppers over Rice tonight, you should make 3 x the amount your family would consume. When everyone is finished eating dinner you simply throw your Sausage and Peppers into a blender and turn it into a sauce, then split it 2 ways. The first portion left over can be frozen for a quick pasta dinner some other time when your in a hurry, and the second portion can be saved for chicken Parmesan for another meal.

Now for the rice, save the first portion for a chicken and rice dinner and the second left over portion for a quick soup made with left overs. Did you notice the mention to the chicken? This is where time is your friend. When you prepare the chicken for your "chicken and rice dinner", you can prepare the chicken for your chicken Parmesan as well. Then you can just freeze your preparation for a different night. There are so many ideas you can come up with by making a simple list and finding common trends. With a little time and effort you can be feeding your family homemade, quick dinners, that are healthy, every night of the week.

Alkaline Diet Recipes

By Micah Kurz

Welcome to an article about alkaline diet recipes. First, a little background info on the alkaline diet and then we can get into a few recipes. The alkaline diet was discovered by Dr. Robert Young. Through his study of the blood he found that healthy blood was a direct reflection of a healthy or alkaline diet. So he basically determined foods to be either alkalizing or acid causing. He found that when a person eats foods that are primarily alkalizing the body as a whole runs at an optimum level.

The Alkaline Diet Recipes are recipes that are designed to alkalize the body and therefore would consist only of food that is alkalizing to the body.

It is recommended that you start of your day with alkaline diet recipes that can be blended into a drink. The idea behind this is that the liquid form of these nutrients is more easily assimilated by the body. One of the alkaline diet recipes is as follows:

Super Alkalizing Green Smoothie

1 Cup of Good Water: alkaline water if available(fresh spring water is typically alkaline)

1 cup of organic blueberries

2 large unripe bananas

2handfuls of spinach,kale, chard, or some dark green leafy vegetable

seaweed-arame, kelp, dulse

1 shot of wheat grass juice

Combine the ingredients in a blender with some ice cubes. Mix thoroughly, and enjoy. A delicious start to your list of alkaline diet recipes, this smoothie will supercharge your day.

The next of the alkaline diet recipes is my personal favorite. It is very simple to make and quite tasty.

Spring Salad

Organic Spring Salad Mix

Add whatever greens you lie (kale, chard, spinach, collard)



Summer black radishes

Toss the salad how you like and use this dressing.

Olive oil

fresh squeezed lemon juice

table spoon sea salt

dried crushed basil

dried crushed oregano

The amounts for the above recipe can be adjusted to your liking. The dressing tastes best when it is allowed to sit a day before you use it. Both of these alkaline diet recipes are extremely alkalizing. They contain very alkalizing ingredients.

Another thing that I like to to with my salads and other recipes, is to add freshly sprouted sprouts to them. Sprouting is an easy and extremely cheap way to add super alkalizing and biogenic foods to your alkaline diet recipes. Mung beans, broccoli, and lentils are all very good choices for sprouting. To sprout all you do is soak seeds in a jar overnight. Then you rinse the seeds and drain them 2-3 times a day for around 7 days. Keep the sprouts in a dark room or covered with NO light until the last day. Then set them in a spot where they can get moderate sunlight for about six hours. You will notice that they start to turn green from as they begin to produce chlorophyll. Finally, add the sprouts to your favorite alkaline diet recipes and enjoy!

The Pleasure of Grilling Rib Eye Steaks

By Richard Calvin Myers

Ask anyone you know about what he would like to eat on his next night off and for sure, you will hear one answer -steak. And ask any steak lover about what they think is the best steak and around 50% of them would tell you that it's none other than a grilled rib eye steak. Are you surprised? You shouldn't be because after a tiring week of working, every one of us craves for a delicious yet easy dinner. Especially in summer, there is nothing as fulfilling and as sumptuous as a beautiful rib eye steak grilled on hardwood fire. The habit of building a fire, the tempting aroma and the delightful flavor of grilled rib eye all contribute to the simple pleasure of the tradition of grilling rib eye steak.

If you have already had the experience of grilling rib eye steak on a live fire, for sure, you have already felt that pleasure mentioned above however, if you haven't, just read on and take advantage of the few guidelines that will help you get the delight of grilling rib eye steak as well as the great results you are looking for, for that sumptuous dinner anybody would want to have.

How to Have Succulent Grilled Rib Eye Steak:

Grilling rib eye steak is like grilling any other type of steak. You should begin with the quality of meat cut the right way. If you are able to do this, your grilled rib eye steak will certainly shine without the need for elaborated tenderizers or flavorings. How would you assess the quality of meat you will be using for your next grilling rib eye steak agenda? Remember that prime meat is superior, choice meat is just a runner up and select is third placer and you shall never choose "select" meat for a steak. The grading system of meat especially the rib eye is based on the amount of the visible fat that shows throughout the muscle tissue and this is called marbling. The meat for your grilled rib eye should be richly marbled and when this is the case, it gets higher grade because it is juicier, more flavorful and tenderer. This is because of the intramuscula fat that bastes and melts while grilling it. Also, because the fat in the meat insulates, marbling can provide the prevention of the meat being overcooked.

Planning on Grilling Rib Eye Steak? Try the recipe below:

Grilled Rib Eye Steak


2 20 oz boneless rib eye steaks (about 1 ½ inches thick)
1 tbs. of fresh thyme leaves 2 tbs. of black pepper (freshly ground)
1 tbs. of extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbs. of course salt

Cooking Directions

1. Mix the thyme, olive oil, and black pepper in a dish and make sure to rub both sides of steak with an equal amount of the mixture. Set aside while preparing the grill.
2. Make sure that the fire is hot enough to cook the steak. Sprinkle a small amount of salt on the sides of the steak. Grill one side for 5 or 6 minutes and another side for 3 or 4 minutes.
3. Serve the steak on a serving platter. Have it rest for around a minute or two for the juice of the steak to settle.

Now that you know how to grill a rib eye steak perfectly and you've got one great recipe, you are set to have that sumptuous dinner brought to you by grilling rib eye steak.
