Fall is here and soon it will be time for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! Did you know that pumpkin is high in vitamin A and fiber, and low in calories and carbohydrates?! Check out the website below for a healthy pumpkin soup recipe that includes steps on how to make your own pumpkin puree!  I also love to sneak pumpkin puree into my chili during the fall! Check out one of my favorite pumpkin chili recipes below.  When you pick up a pumpkin to carve this year, be sure to scrape all the insides out and roast the seeds for a low calorie snack. And don’t forget the pumpkin pie…protein shake!! Yum!  Happy Fall Yall!
