Autumn is a special time of year. The kids are back in school, football is in full swing and you can find PSL (pumpkin spice lattes) everywhere! All of these things and the upcoming holidays often center around the menu and typically as we start to feel cooler outside many begin bundling up and adding layers to their wardrobes. Heavier soups and comfort foods are often being made for dinner to keep us feeling cozy. Fall is the pre-party to the holiday season. Many times this means our healthier state of minds fall to sideline and sometimes add to our waistlines.
In an effort to sustain the healthy eating habits many have adapted for summer we have compiled some recipes on Pinterest to help you put together a menu for any of your fall festivities.
Tailgating and Game Watching – Football is equivalent to good finger foods that are not only easy to eat but easy to prepare that way you can enjoy the game too! Some delicious game day options are Teriyaki Chick Wings with Hot Mango Dipping Sauce, Skinny Cajun Shrimp Skewers and a slow cooker recipe for Pulled Pork.
PSL Please – Pumpkin Spice Lattes are everywhere and beyond a latte there are plenty of pumpkin spice whatever you like recipes from cakes to oatmeal to cocktails! Want to get that pumpkin spice coffee taste minus the long lines? Here’s a recipe for a Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer, which is dairy free and sugar free as well as a Pumpkin Spice Latte here and here. There are plenty of uses for that pumpkin spice flavor such as this Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie, Hazelnut Coffee Crème Brulee, and of course the traditional Pumpkin Pie.
