Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding

More pumpkin! This is kind of like eating a bowl of pumpkin pie filling, and everyone knows the filling is the best part!

Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding
adapted from Oh She Glows

3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (I use So Delicious)
1 cup organic canned pumpkin
2-3 Tbs chia seeds
2 Tbs vanilla protein powder (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbs maple syrup

Mix all ingredients together and chill in the fridge for at least an hour or two.


Paleo Pumpkin Bread

I am so ready for pumpkin everything! This bread is moist and delicious.

Paleo Pumpkin Bread

1 cup almond flour
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 rounded tablespoon cinnamon
½ cup canned organic pumpkin
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 tablespoons dark maple syrup (you could sub honey but the maple goes great with pumpkin)
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients until combined, then add remaining ingredients and mix. Pour the mix into a prepared 8×8 baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.

Great with breakfast, for dessert or with afternoon tea!


I made this last week and really liked it – the apple sauce keeps it really moist and adds just a little sweetness.

adapted from Mark’s Daily Apple

1 1/2 lbs grass fed ground beef
1/4 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp dried mustard powder
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 egg
Salt and pepper to taste
Organic ketchup

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the ketchup and mix. Either press mixture into a greased loaf pan or cover a cookie sheet with greased foil and form individual loaves (my preferred method). Drizzle the top of the meat with ketchup. For a loaf pan cook between 30-45 minutes (to your desired doneness). Mini loaves take 20-30.
