I am your cliche fall-loving, pumpkin-obsessed, sweater and scarf-wearing lady 😉 I am ALL about those fall vibes! With Thanksgiving LITERALLY around the corner, I wanted to share 3 of my FAVOURITE fall pumpkin recipes! They are gluten free, dairy free, low sugar or sugar free and taste delicious as always!
The first recipe is a delicious pumpkin pie dip that will be a crowd pleaser! You can serve it with pretzels (gluten-free of course), cookies, use it as a frosting, etc!
The second recipe is this creamy soup recipe that is loaded with nutrients to fight candida, nourish the spleen, help seal leaky gut and of course, make you feel oh so cozy! This soup is alkalizing and great for reducing #inflammation too! I love soups and smoothies because they are “pre-chewed” and therefor easy to digest! They give your body nutrients that are easily absorbed and assimilated without having to stress your stomach to breakdown the proteins, stress your liver and pancreas to secrete large amounts of enzymes and stress your GI tract to breakdown the food and move it through to the large intestine. If you consume at least 1 of your daily meals in puree form (preferably warm) your digestion will GREATLY improve!💙
The third recipe is, of course, a pumpkin pie! It is dairy free, gluten free, lower sugar than most other pies and is PERFECTLY balanced in flavour, spices and TEXTURE! I promise, its the best pie you will ever make!
