Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!! In my home, pumpkin pie is a staple at Thanksgiving. Nothing beats a truly good pumpkin pie filling. My dad only ate the best of the best pumpkin pie... he was a bit of a pie connoisseur. He knew when someone got the flavors just right. I'm sure he would agree with my household that these tarts make the list of pumpkin pies to eat. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Did you know that pumpkin seeds contain cucurbitacin, which is a unique amino acid that helps in hair growth. More commonly know is that pumpkin seeds contain zinc and zinc helps your skin heal and offers UV protection. Can you see why I love pumpkin seeds so much. Just 30g will give you protein, healthy fats, fiber, zinc, selenium, magnesium..., But enough of the boring stuff... let's eat. I love a good granola... and tis the season to be all about pumpkins. Enjoy this pumpkin spice granola recipe! Another one of my favs.
Welcome to the first full day of Autumn where we can "officially" start our pumpkin spice consumption. Well really, who am I kidding, I started a few weeks ago. But now that the weather is cooler and the days are shortening, we start to get into the warm flavors of fall. Hello, pumpkin everything!!🎃 This ain't no traditional smoothie recipe... this will warm you from the inside out. Jennifer says "The perfect transition from cold smoothie season into fall... it was magical."
Happy Friday. Pumpkin Spice and everything nice. Boy, do I love this time of year. Here in Newmarket, we are still experiencing some really hot days, wow is it a hot one today. Big difference from the chill this morning. Today I am sharing with you a Chia Seed Pudding recipe, similar to overnight oats, except we use these high fibre seeds to thicken up this pudding. Add in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice… and you’ll be in heaven (for all those pumpkin spice lovers)!! Visit my website to learn about the amazing health benefits of this tiny super-food and to grab the recipe. Have a fabulous day everyone!
