Fall is here which means it’s time for all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pancakes. Pumpkin bread. Pumpkin crepes. Pumpkin lattes (oh how I miss Black Bird Cafe in Port Angeles! Starbucks has NOTHING on them!). Pretty much if I make it, I add pumpkin. We buy the puree by the Costco size. Which makes eating right a bit difficult. Pumpkin goes really well with cream cheese, after all.
It’s a constant battle, this whole being healthy thing. Like, I know it’s a lifestyle change, one I’ve done before and am working on again, but still-it’s HARD. But things like painted on jeans (see yesterday’s post) just hammer down more conviction to get a changing. (that and the chex mix I consumed last night)
Like I said, I’m taking this one day, one meal, one work out at a time. And today has been a good day. The babe and I went for a run and I’ve fed my body well. I’ve kept my coffee black and had a smoothie for breakfast. Seriously yummy. Full of berries and goodness. And today I’m having pie for lunch. Well, sort of. I found a pumpkin smoothie that I thought I’d give a shot and it’s not to shabby! I’ll share the recipe with you as best as I can. For those that know me, this is a challenge. I don’t really believe in measuring. At any rate, throw some stuff together and enjoy!
