While I try to focus a whole lot more on clean eating and nutrition than anything else when it comes to food these days, there are just some connections I can’t help but ignore.
One of my fondest memories from this time of year is coming home to fresh baked pumpkin muffins on a Sunday morning when my dad had been staying with my grandpa after his stroke. We’d gather in the kitchen and enjoy them as a family as a fun way to reconnect and enjoy a little treat after having all gone our separate ways throughout the week.
Y’all! I’ve already told you I’m on the fall train over here! But I may not have told you I’m making it my mission to create as many new, delicious, AND healthy recipes as I can. But I am now!
Fall flavors and foods are part of what I love most about the season, but they aren’t always the most nutritious. I want to change that, so I’ll be sharing some of my favorite clean eating recipes with all of the yummy fall flavors. This breakfast recipe is a perfect way to start off the season!
I don’t know about you, but about the time I see the first leaf fall (okay, it’s really when everyone heads back to school), I’m ready to don my scarf and boots and start sipping my Pumpkin Spice Latte – the healthy one of course! I seriously love EVERYTHING about fall!!! You’re probably thinking, “So what’s the problem?” Or maybe you guessed it already…
As much as I love all of the scents and flavors and fun of fall, it can all wreak havoc on my nutrition and fall fitness routine! Although delicious, most of the flavors of fall are a bit decadent and less than nutritious. And with the extra busyness of the season (with after school practices and football games and harvest festivals…) who really has a ton of time to or wants to take the time to work out? So what’s a girl to do?!
I’ve already confessed my love of fall to you, but I just can’t contain my excitement any longer! I’ve been searching Pinterest boards high and low for fun fall projects and wanted to share. So whether you’ve already started your fun fall festivities or not, consider adding one (or two) of my fall favorites to your list.
We’ll start off with a few of my favorite fall décor suggestions.I love this Simple Fall Candle Centerpiece! I have a few leftover leaves from another fall project and may just have to use them up with this option.
These pumpkins are gorgeous. The vintage glamour of these would be perfect along my mantle! (No source found.)This vase of pumpkins and branches is darling. Hometalk featured a number of fast and frugal ideas that are fun and, obviously, easy!The rustic yet classy elements of this Fall Centerpiece are simply perfect.
