Are you sick of recipes that incorporate pumpkin yet? OK, good. I have a delicious one for ya!
I bought 5 cans of pumpkin that I plan to use, so I needed to get creative. What better way to celebrate the beginning of fall than warm, delicious, mouthwatering cookies? I’ll let that question sink in.
In the mean time…
I’ve officially decided to join into this What I Ate Wednesday that’s hosted by the beautiful Jenn! I think it will give you all a better idea of what I eat on a daily basis, since I’m a creature of habit and tend to eat the same foods (and leftovers).
Just a disclaimer: Everyone is different. Some days I eat more, some days I eat less. I listen to my body and eat when I’m hungry and (most of the time) stop when I’m full.
Not pictured below: 5,000 baby carrots. They’re delicious but not very photogenic. Sorry baby carrots 😦
Let’s start with breakfast, shall we?
What is life without coffee? A grumpy, miserable place I’d imagine.
This is the norm for me: oatmeal, cinnamon, unsweetened cocoa powder, strawberries, chia seeds and a few drops of Stevia. Gotta get my protein in, so 1 egg + 2 whites. Always satisfying, always delicious!
99% lean ground turkey topped with roasted wasabi seaweed, broccoli, nutritional yeast. Side salad with spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and strawberries.
My favorite snack
Dinner came together in a flash thanks to leftovers from Outback 🙂 Romaine lettuce topped with lean sirloin, strawberries, blueberries, carrots and drizzled with raspberry balsamic vinegar.
And the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Drumroll please…..
Dessert/Snack/Eat all day if you please
I adopted the idea for this recipe from The Detonxinista. And when I say adopted, I mean I copied it directly because it looked so good I didn’t want to change a single thing! They’re simple, grain-free, flourless and can be made paleo if you choose not to incorporate chocolate chips. (It’s OK, you can substitute tears instead.) All you need is almond butter, pumpkin, pure maple syrup or sweetener or choice, spices, sea salt & vanilla extract. You may click here for full recipe and baking instructions if you’re interested!
