Fall is here! I have already fully embraced all things fall starting by switching out my summer clothes for a warmer, fall wardrobe and purchasing fall fruits and veggies. Fall is my favorite season for many reasons: scarves, riding boots, blazers, no humidity, football, my birthday, squash recipes, apple picking, and pumpkins – everything pumpkin!
My pumpkin obsession
Like so many people, I’ve become a bit obsessed with all things pumpkin the past few years. The day Wawa started serving pumpkin spice coffee made me so happy; I even ordered a few bags so I could make my own at home. Have you tried it with vanilla almond milk? It’s simply scrumptious! Pumpkin is not only tasty in every variation — from bread to ravioli to beer — it’s also high in vitamin A and fiber and low in calories.
So why not add some new recipes incorporating this powerful vegetable into your diet?
Ever make overnight oats to enjoy for breakfast? They’re quick, easy, and filling. Well, Skinny Pumpkin Overnight Oats in a Jar adds a pumpkin twist to classic oats that’s beyond delicious!
Most of my friends love football and since I love social gatherings, having people over for a day full of games is a frequent occurrence throughout the fall. Everyone brings a snack or drinks for the group to enjoy. I try to incorporate pumpkin into my snacks — my go-to is this Pumpkin Dip, which is not only tasty, but healthy too. It’s a hit with everyone and can be paired with apples or graham crackers. I think it’s nice to have some healthier options next to the wings and cheese dips.
There are so many healthy and delicious fall pumpkin recipes, what’s your favorite?
