Clean Eating Pumpkin Muffins

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.

Spice Up Your Fall Fitness

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?!

Struggle sticking to your health and wellness goals this time of year? Spice up your fall fitness with this fun, effective option!
