Perfectly Pumpkin: Simple & Healthy Pumpkin Recipes
Happy November! With the pumpkin craze still going strong, I thought the best way to get back into writing would be to share tasty pumpkin recipes with you. The funny thing about my obsession with pumpkins is that I do not really like the flavor of pumpkin, except for classic pumpkin pie. It is the general obsession with pumpkin that intrigues me. It brings joy and excitement to others and I love being a part of that. So, pumpkin lovers, this post is just for you! It includes several simple & healthy pumpkin recipes that you are sure to love.
In addition to blogging, I work as an Independent Representative with Wildtree. I recently promoted to Team Leader and, because of the timing of my promotion, earned a FREE trip to Rhode Island to tour Home Office and meet our founder, Leslie Montie. I am super excited to witness firsthand where our amazing blends are born.
Before I joined the Wildtree family, I thought pumpkin was only used for flavoring coffee and desserts. However, I quickly learned pumpkin is used in many recipes, even in savory dishes. A great feature of the Wildtree website is that you can search recipes by product, meal type or ingredients. So, I typed in “pumpkin” into the search feature and it came up with these awesome recipes:

I love variety, although, I am the type of person that eats my meals one item at a time. First a salad, second is veggies, then the main dish and don’t forget about dessert! Now that we have the savory recipes covered, it is time to pick out some sweets. We are all likely coming off a Halloween sugar high, therefore, I’ve included some indulgent recipes from some of my favorite crunchy blogs that are healthy and simple to make:

Regardless of your level of pumpkin obsession, these recipes will jazz up your Fall cooking repertoire and give your body much needed fiber and nutrients. Remember to stay healthy and hydrated during the holiday season. Enjoy!
