Happy Halloween!

Do you ever feel guilty at Halloween handing out complete junk to little kids? I know I do. I would totally hand out apples…if I didn’t want to keep them from being thrown at me by disappointed children ;)
I just discovered UNREAL candy unjunked – no artificial ingredients, no hydrogenated oils, no corn syrup, no preservatives, and no GMOs! Not that this is to be considered “healthy”, but at least it’s a better alternative to what I was handing out before. I bought in bulk at BJs! The peanut butter cups and chocolate caramel peanut nougat bars taste better and fresher too!

To learn more about them or to order, visit their site at http://getunreal.com  Available at large store like Target, Giant, Amazon.com and BJs!

 

Pumpkin Seeds

Carving a pumpkin? Don’t throw those seeds out! Did you know pumpkin seeds are high in protein, reduce inflammation, prevent kidney stones, are high in zinc and more! Simply rinse and place them on a cookie sheet with a sprinkle of sea salt and a spritz of coconut oil. Bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes. Yum!

Pumpkin-Raspberry Muffins

I will try almost anything to get my kids to eat as many fruits, vegetables and whole grains as I can during the day.  And, what’s more fun in the fall than baking with pumpkins?  Here’s a fun recipe you and your little ones will LOVE!

Pumpkin-Raspberry Muffins

Serves 12

1 cup quinoa flour

¾ cup whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup coconut milk

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 tablespoons agave

1 teaspoon vanilla
