Well, it is officially fall! There is nothing quite like snuggling up in a blanket, with a hot cup of tea, watching a movie on a chilly Sunday afternoon. That is of course, after you have gotten to your workout, and have enjoyed a healthy breakfast and lunch.

Often times, people fall into the trap of “FALL”. It starts to get cold, and we crave comfort food. We aren’t showing quite as much skin, so it is easy to cover up a couple of extra pounds with a chunky sweater. Of course, we can’t forget the Holiday goodies that start to pop up. It is really easy to forget about our health and wellness goals, and to just give into temptation.

Make it your choice this year not to “FALL” backwards, but to keep moving forwards. Chose 3 goals for the next three months and REACH THEM. They can be as easy as getting rid of soda, eliminating artificial sugar, introducing kale to your diet, applying to a new job, or cleaning out that closet of yours. Goals don’t need to be wild and crazy, but they have to exist. They need to be REAL to you.

So, FALL=Pumpkin

Here is my favorite Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie recipe!!!


I know, it’s a little green…I add spirulina to all of my smoothies… but it tastes amazing!!!

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling!)
  • 1/2 half banana (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or other non dairy milk substitute)
  • 1 mejool date
  • 1 TBS chopped raw pecans
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • stevia to taste
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1 tsp spirulina powder
  • 1 TBS Vanilla protein powder
  • ice

Blend all ingredients and enjoy!

Tomorrow I will post an incredible Pumpkin Soup recipe!!! The answer is yes, I have eaten it for both lunch and dinner.
