Now that I've gotten this off my chest, I can write about Halloween.
I think your Halloween day would be perfected with:
This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for breakfast
And some oatmeal with fresh fruit for you and your family. You probably are trying to pack as many health-giving nutrients into your child's tummy throughout the day, to prepare for the candy mania...
A quick and easy recipe of Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese for lunch.
With a very big "sanity salad" and oil-free dressing for Mommy. Or maybe you prefer a dressing and salad like this?
And an easy, (pictured) Golden, crowd-pleasing soup to bring to that Halloween potluck, or fuel those cute little fairies and puppy dogs on their nights' spook-fest. Paul and I also love this Hearty Vegetable Soup, and Coconut Corn Chowder is another favorite, crowd-pleaser.
With a side of scarily-delicious chocolate cookies (sans tummy ache!) so you don't have to feel deprived as all the donuts and other masses of junk food are served.
And, good news folks, I am starting to get into perfecting the oil free, whole food cake. Hope to see one around here, sometime soon.
Next up, is Thanksgiving. I am becoming a total believer in seasonal eating. I can't believe what a difference it makes to eat fruits and vegetables, in their season. Not only are the prices fantastic (my grocery bill has gone way down!) but I feel amazing when I eat food in it's season.
I will try to find and post as many seasonal recipes as I can, as Thanksgiving fast approaches. (No promises, though, cuz I don't do well with pressure.)
I hope you have a wonderful Halloween. Stay safe, and keep those kiddos warm. (And steal some of their candy, no Halloween is complete without imposing candy taxes!)
