Don’t you just love when something spur-of-the-moment and totally random comes together so perfectly? Let’s call this one a “Happy (Pumpkin) Accident.”
It all happened today when my tummy let me know it was ready for a mid-morning snack. I had woken up around 7:15 (I’m so used to waking up early during the week that this is sleeping in for me!) and spent the morning cleaning and doing some work. I hadn’t gone grocery shopping for the week yet, so my fridge was total randomness. Sometimes, the best things happen when you’re forced to get creative!
What did I end up with? A tasty protein packed fall snack – or breakfast!
Here’s what ya need:
1 container plain Greek yogurt
3 T canned pumpkin (not pie filling!)
1/2 t cinnamon
dash of pumpkin pie spice
1 packet natural sweetener (I used Truvia)
chia seeds (if ya fancy)
Mix up, and enjoy! Easy peasy, right?
*I topped mine with a spoonful of natural PB (’cause I’m a PB freak like that). Delish.
By the way, if you thought pumpkins were just for carving/smashing/decorating – think again! Pumpkin happens to be a superfood packed with nutrients . Read more about why your body loves pumpkin here.
Have a great week!
