WIAW – Fall eats + pumpkin pie & chai smoothies

Happy Wednesday! If you’re new to the blog, on Wednesday’s I join in on the WIAW fun and share some of the things I’ve been eating lately. WIAW is hosted by Jenn of Peas and Crayons.

I’m off to teach PiYo for the fist time (eek!), so I’m keeping this short and sweet.

For breakfast, I’ve been adding in pumpkin pie smoothies and pumpkin chai smoothies. I froze pumpkin in our ice cube tray (I was super pumped this actually worked).

A few chunks of pumpkin, a few frozen banana slices, almond milk, chai latte mix (for the pumpkin chai), vanilla protein power, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Fabulous!

This weekend during our shopping adventures, John and I stopped by my favorite salad place and I got a ginormous spinach and kale salad with a million toppings. So good.

At home, I made Alexis’s pumpkin pasta with gluten free noodles – amazing! If you haven’t made this yet, I definitely recommend it.

So many delicious fall eats! I love this season! Time for PiYo, cross your fingers for me that I won’t forget the moves!!

      Thanks lady 😉 It is canned pumpkin. I never thought of freezing my leftover smoothie, that’s such a good idea! Thanks for the tip 🙂

    I had never heard of freezing pumpkin until just the other day. I’ll definitely be giving that genius idea a try. Your chai smoothie sounds fantastic! I’m not sure if you’ve heard of CLICK before but it’s a protein powder. They have both vanilla latte & mocha flavor- so good.. and esp with banana & pumpkin =)

      I hadn’t heard of CLICK but Vanilla latte sounds heavenly! I hadn’t heard of anyone freezing it, but I figured it was worth trying and, success!

      Oh a muffin tin is so smart! PiYo went well, small class but I didn’t forget the moves so I call that a success 🙂
