Seasonal Recipes to Fall in Love

Happy fall y’all! I’m pretty sure the fall season makes just about everyone happy! The chill in the air, the tree leaves starting to change color, and pumpkin spice everywhere, all the time!!! Fall is such a fun, cozy time to gather with friends and family for a yummy meal. The Autumnal harvest provides a beautiful array of color, and plentiful assortment of squash, potatoes, pumpkins, apples and more!  There has never been a simpler time of year to eat the rainbow!!

I’ve put together a fall inspired recipe list that will motivate you to use some of our glorious, seasonal produce… And then relish in how amazing your house smells!! 🙂

Pumpkin Spice Latte by Detoxinista

What signals the arrival of the fall season MORE than a PSL?! Starbucks put this drink on the map in 2003, and I’m not sure there has ever been a coffee drink with a greater impact on popular culture! If you are looking for a version that won’t set you back 50 grams of sugar, try Detoxinista’s Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe. I’m all about enjoying life, especially during fall and winter.  If I can find a treat that tastes as good as the original, without refined sugar and artificial ingredients. I’m all in! This PSL is made with real, whole ingredients, is dairy free and delicious! Blend it up in minutes and enjoy on a crisp fall morning.

Turkey Chili By Happy Dinner ATX

Nothing screams fall more to me than Chili! I love switching it up and varying my chili recipe. Sometimes I use chicken, other times grass-fed, ground beef.  If you are in the mood to move away from your traditional “go-to” recipe Give this one a try! It’s really healthy and anti-inflammatory but also delicious! I love using Eden Organic Kidney Beans in my chili recipes! Eden Organic Beans are the best y’all!! They are Organic, Non-GMO & PBA free. Plus Eden washes, soaks, sprouts and pressure cooks all of their beans before they are canned! This process inactivates the lectins making the beans easier to digest! They are the only brand of beans I will buy!!!
