We finally have cooler weather in Colorado that should stay with us for awhile…until the cold, snowy weather hits. The leaves are changing colors and coming down in droves. The urge to walk through the crunchy leaves is strong! The urge to relax on the front porch with a cup of tea is equally as strong. And all the pumpkin foodstuff in the stores is plentiful!
In addition to beautiful leaf colors and the crisp morning air, fall is a time of renewal, a time of change and a time to slow down. Slowing down during this season does wonders for our health.
Now, about all those fall pumpkin treats in the stores…I’m still doing Whole30, so I’m abstaining from treats for now. But I’ve found that there are plenty of Paleo versions of some yummy-looking, pumpkin-rich recipes. These recipes use unrefined sugars like honey, coconut sugar and maple syrup. As I looked for some pumpkin recipes to share with you, I also came across some delicious-looking fall-inspired Whole30 and Paleo. Then I found some Paleo and Whole30 recipes for Thanksgiving (you could have an entire Whole30 Thanksgiving this year if that’s where you’re at!)
We hope you enjoy these recipes!
