This month's menu will convince you that pumpkins can be refreshing and delicious anytime. Pumpkin recipes aren't just for cold weather! And they are a super food, with “substantial medicinal properties" says the NIH.
Start your day with lemon juice & water, then followup with Green Drink. Breakfast is a yummy Pumpkin Protein Smoothie and lunch is a filling Pumpkin Squash Salad with Quinoa. For an afternoon snack you get my Spicy Pumpkin Hummus, and dinner is Curried Pumpkin Soup.
First Thing in the Morning
I have lemon water in the morning and then I wait until I'm hungry to have my Green Drink.
For Breakfast – Pumpkin Protein Smoothie
This smoothie tastes rich and decadent – but it is vegan and gluten free as well. I use raw cashews and my own Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend to make this a healthy, delicious treat that won’t make you bloated. – Veronica
Lunch – Warm Pumpkin Salad
Warm pumpkin salad: this is a delicious fall treat for those first cool days that signal the end of summer. It’s very filling and makes you feel full even though it’s a salad. It’s also very healthy and vegan.
Afternoon Snack – Spicy Golden Pumpkin Hummus
This treat is so yummy you can eat it with gluten free crackers, veggies, on a veggie sandwich. For a party or everyday, I know you’ll enjoy it. make it with my Organic Pumpkin Purée.
Dinner – Creamy Curry Pumpkin Soup
The only thing more comforting than a bowl of soup is a bowl of homemade soup that is both vegan and gluten-free. There’s something special about cooking comforting meals like this during the Fall that will warm you up and have your kitchen smelling festive.
Cozy up with someone you love and enjoy this delicious pumpkin soup on a cool fall night!
