6 Amazing Pumpkin Recipes To Make This Fall


Fall has become one of my favorite seasons since it involves everything pumpkin. Saying goodbye to summer isn't easy, but the crisp autumnal breeze and festive aspects of fall make the transition easier. From watching the leaves change color, to apple picking, pumpkin patches, and making seasonal fall foods, there's so much to enjoy this season. I love pumpkin recipes as much as the next person but would rather stay away from the high-calorie pumpkin pie.  Here are some true and tried recipes to get your pumpkin fix with these low-calorie but high nutrient foods. Did you know that pumpkins are high in fiber and contain the antioxidant beta-carotene which keeps your eyes sharp? This week on my blog will feature fall themed foods you need to add to your list to try this season.

Last week I baked a sugar pumpkin to have fresh pumpkin puree. With it I made Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal for breakfast all week, it was delicious!


Sugar-Free Pumpkin Bread  check out the calorie comparison I did between my recipe and Starbucks pumpkin bread.

Overnight pumpkin oatmeal - if you're not ready to turn the oven on yet.

Pumpkin curry - if you love Thai food, you'll want to try this.

Pumpkin soup with tofu croutons.

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake - Last Friday I went out to lunch and saw on the menu "Pumpkin Pie Smoothie" which I'm sure would be delicious but made with ice cream which is just way too much sugar for me. It reminded me I had a delicious but low in sugar protein shake made with pumpkins. Watch the video of me mixing it up.
