Pumpkin might be the most relatable food item when it comes to fall forward cravings. However, it is a squash, and that’s rarely thought of as a good base for a smoothie! However, with it’s smooth texture and heaps of health benefits, it’s a worthy addition to your smoothie meal plans.

A smoothie bowl is a relatively new way to enjoy smoothies, as you pour your thick blended smoothie into a bowl, and top it with complimentary ingredients.

We wanted this bowl to be packed with flavor and nutrients, all differently benefitting the body. From skin and hair to your tummy and metabolism…this breakfast/lunch/snack is everything your body is going to be craving this Autumn.

Plus, it might keep you away from all that sugar filled pumpkin pie…

(or at least satisfy the craving for a while!)

I grew up with an amazing Mother who would do everything with themes. From birthday gifts, to seasonal decor, and even meals.
We've all been there, buying a whole can of pumpkin puree for a recipe that requires maybe half a cup of the stuff.
When carving pumpkins, it's an absolute disgrace to toss all those pumpkin seeds with the guts. A DISGRACE!
Pumpkins are a wonderful ingredient. They are good in both savory and sweet applications.
Spring has finally sprung and we are all about it. While winter had us craving hearty, comfort food-esque dinners, springtime...
Are you tired of making the same meals over and over again? Perhaps you're feeling uninspired in the kitchen.

Granola bars are perfect for so many moments: breakfast time; an at-work or school-safe snack; a picnic, playground, or...
While I don't love all vegetables, I am definitely up for trying new things (at least once).
After trying the plant-based diet, my biggest struggle was being able to feed those in my home that are still meat loving humans.
