It’s (somehow) quickly becoming that time of year once again: the summer heat is cooling down, the leaves are beginning to fall already, and everywhere you go, some variety of pumpkin-flavored delights are popping up for sale. I know that those of you who most appreciate sweater weather and pre-holiday season cheer are already tingling with excitement! Fall has probably the best assortment of seasonal foods and flavor options, but the problem is that a lot of them are either pretty difficult to prepare, or loaded with excessive sugars and fats in the form of baked goods and enticing, flavor-abundant dishes.
So what can you prepare for yourself and your family this fall season that you’ll enjoy cooking, and actually feel good about eating? With all of the fruits, vegetables, nuts and gourds in season, there are limitless possibilities - you just have to know where to find the good recipes! Below we’ve compiled a small variety of harvest-style meal recipes that are relatively easy, and won’t cost you a fortune (especially if you already pride yourself on having a hearty spice rack in your kitchen). So allow yourself that pumpkin spiced latte, and sip with a smile as you read on to see how you can kick off the fall season at dinner time tonight!
Creamy Autumn Vegetable Soup with Easy Pumpkin Bread
For the soup recipe, you’ll need:
2 ½ cups peeled, cubed butternut squash
1 large sweet potato, also peeled and cubed
3 medium carrots, washed and sliced
¼ cup thawed orange juice concentrate (preferably one with no added sugar)
3 cups fat-free milk
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons minced chives
1 ½ tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
To get started on this hearty and colorful dish, you’ll want to steam the first three ingredients in a steamer basket over a large saucepan of boiling water. If you don’t have a steaming basket, don’t fret! Boiling your veggies works all the same, it just leaves them a little less firm and colorful. Whichever way you choose, cook covered for fifteen minutes - you may also fall over or under this mark by a few minutes, depending on how well your vegetables tenderize.
Once they’ve cooled slightly, transfer your ingredients to a food processor, and add in the orange juice concentrate. Again, no worries if you don’t have one - simply mash up your soft veggies a bit before taking them to your blender instead. Process (or blend) until smooth, and then transfer to a large saucepan, stirring in the milk, salt and pepper while still cool. Cook slowly over low heat while stirring, but do not bring the soup to a boil - simply allow it to heat the whole way through while you stir. This recipe is good for six servings of thicky, creamy, nutritious soup, each of which can then be topped with the sour cream, chives, and sesame seeds, if desired.
For the bread recipe, you’ll need:
⅓ cup melted coconut oil
½ cup organic honey
1 cup pumpkin purée (You can make your own with raw pumpkin and a food processor, or collect a can from the grocery store to make things easier!)
¼ cup low-fat milk
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour
Pinch of ground cinnamon, for sprinkling on top
If you’d like: ½ cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or raisins
This side of sweet pumpkin bread takes a bit longer to prepare than it will to get your soup together, so I recommend getting started on the bread first, and then letting it bake while you get to work on your main course. For starters, you’ll need your oven preheated to 325 degrees F and a lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. Then, grab a large bowl and whisk firmly together the oil and the honey. Blend in the eggs next, making sure that your coconut oil does not solidify - if it does, simply let it warm up in the microwave or on a warm stovetop before proceeding.
Whisk in next your pumpkin puree, milk, ground spices, baking soda, vanilla, and salt. Finally, with a large spoon, stir in the flour a little at a time until it is just mixed in - it’s fine if you have a few lumps. Fold in any extras now if you have them (I like to sneak in some chocolate chips every once in a while), and then pour into your greased loaf pan.
Sprinkle the top of your raw batter with cinnamon (if desired), and bake for 55 to 60 minutes until you get a clean toothpick when inserted into and removed from the center of the loaf. This recipe makes one loaf that will need to cool ten minutes before being removed from the pan, and then for 20 minutes on a cooling rack, all before slicing. And now you’ve got a lightly sweet, healthy side or dessert for your soup!
Harvest Nut Salad with Cinnamon Apple Chips
For the salad, you’ll need:
⅓ cup chopped walnuts
⅓ cup chopped pecans
1 bunch spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
For the dressing:
2 tablespoons red raspberry jam (with seeds)
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
⅓ cup walnut oil (extra virgin olive oil also works fine)
freshly ground black pepper to taste
salt to taste
This salad is simple to prepare and delicious to have! To get started, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F, and spread your walnuts and pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet to toast in the oven for about five minutes. While you’ve got that going, whisk together the jam, vinegar, oil of choice, pepper, and salt to prepare the salad dressing. Once the nuts are done and cooled, mix them together in a large bowl with the spinach, cranberries, blue cheese, tomatoes, avocado and onion. Toss in your salad dressing to coat, and you’ve got six easy servings of a deliciously nutritious fall salad!
For the chips, you’ll need:
3 large sweet, crisp apples, such as Honeycrisp, Fuji, Jazz, or Pink Lady
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
These apple chips are really as easy as it gets, and can be prepared on a lazy Sunday to have with your salad whenever you’d like throughout the week, since they need to bake for a few hours. To begin, spread your baking racks out on the upper and lower thirds of your oven, preheat to 200 degrees F, and line two full-sized baking sheets with parchment paper. Wash and core your apples of choice, and use a sharp knife to cut them into ⅛ inch thick round slices. Places the apple rounds in a single layer on your baking sheets and sprinkle with the cinnamon.
Bake for one hour, switch the pans on your oven racks, and then continue baking for 1 to 1 ½ hours. At two hours in, check the crispness of your apple slices by removing one and allowing it to cool at room temperature for 2 to 3 minutes. Continue baking for that last half hour until you are happy with the crispness. Remember that the total baking time will vary upon the thickness of your slices and the kind of apple you chose! Once you’re done baking, turn off the oven, but leave your pans in for 1 hour as it cools to set the crispiness of the slices, checking occasionally to get them just as crispy as you like them. When you’re finally done, you’ll have about three cups of apple chips, which also just make for a great fall snack!
Slow-Cooker Thanksgiving Casserole
For this recipe, you’ll need:
14 ounces multigrain ciabatta rolls (about 7 rolls), cut into 1-inch cubes
Nonstick cooking spray
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
1 pound turkey breast tenderloin, cut into 1½-inch pieces
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
¼ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon crushed Italian seasoning
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup turkey stock
This is probably my favorite one on the list, since it’s a full Thanksgiving meal, without all the hours of work! Lay out your ciabatta cubes in a single layer on a large baking pan and bake in a preheated oven (350 degrees F) for 20 to 22 minutes until they are completely dried, and let cool afterwards. As they bake, lightly coat the inside of your 4-quart crockpot with cooking spray and set aside. Get to work on the meat of this recipe by rubbing ½ teaspoon of the Italian seasoning onto the surface of the turkey with your fingers, and then melt butter over medium-high heat in a large, nonstick skillet.
Add the turkey to the skillet and cook for about five minutes, or until just browned on the outside, and then remove from heat. Once your ciabatta is done baking, toss the bread cubes and browned turkey in a large bowl, adding in the celery, carrots, onion, cranberries, parmesan, and remaining spices. (You can also add in some of the drippings from the turkey pan if you like, for an extra boost of flavor.) Once combined, drizzle in the stock over the mixture and toss regularly until the bread is lightly moistened (but don’t let it get soggy!).
Finally, spoon your mixture into your prepared crockpot, cover, and cook on low for 2 ½ to 3 hours (or until your turkey has reached an appropriate color, and your stuffing is warm throughout the casserole). Dish out up to eight servings directly from your crockpot for a delicious, easy, and early Thanksgiving dinner!
Crockpot Cranberry Meatballs with Mashed Sweet Potatoes
For the meatballs, you’ll need:
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 pounds ground turkey
1 cup cooked long-grain brown rice
½ cup dried cranberries, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 to 3 teaspoons olive oil
1 (14.5 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
⅓ cup reduced-sugar ketchup
¼ cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
This one is a hearty, filling recipe that is still simple to whip up, and can be served as is, on meatball subs, or in whatever other way you can think of. Combine your eggs, turkey, rice, cranberries, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Using your palms (you can wet them if the mixture seems too sticky to work with), shape the mixture into individual meatballs, each being about 1 ½ inches in diameter, which should give you about 60 meatballs. Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in an extra large skillet over medium heat (use the last teaspoon if you deem it necessary as you cook), and cook half the meatballs at a time, turning each batch over once about halfway through, until just browned and slightly firm (about five minutes).
Once you’re done, immediately and carefully move each batch of meatballs from the skillet to a 3 ½ or 4 quart crockpot. In a separate bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, ketchup, and orange and lime juices with a whisk, and then pour that mixture over the meatballs in the crockpot (but do not stir!). Cover and cook on the low setting for 3 to 4 hours, checking occasionally within the last hour to see if your meatballs have cooked entirely through. For a quicker meal, you can also cook them on the high setting for 1 ½ to 2 hours, paying careful attention that the meatballs near the edges of your crockpot do not dry out or begin to burn. This recipe produces a lot of meatballs, so be sure to have friends or family over for this one to show off your seasonal chef skills!
For the mashed potatoes, you’ll need:
1 ½ pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 ½ tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
¼ cup low-fat milk
½ teaspoon salt
⅜ teaspoon black pepper
This is an easy mashed potato recipe with a seasonal twist that makes for a healthy, delicious side! Start by filling a large saucepan with your sweet potato cubes and covering them with 2 inches of water (meaning 2 inches from the surface of the water to the top of the potatoes). Bring the pan to a boil on high heat, and then reduce to medium-low heat and simmer for about 18 minutes until the cubes are tender. Drain the cubes thoroughly, and return them to the saucepan.
In a small skillet, combine the butter and olive oil over medium heat, and cook for about three minutes until the mixture browns and becomes fragrant. Remove this mixture from heat and stir in the thyme. Add your milk, salt and pepper to the sweet potato cubes and mash thoroughly, then drizzle with the butter mixture and stir gently to distribute the flavor. Garnish your potatoes with thyme leaves if desired, and you’re all set! This recipe provides four servings that pair perfectly with those cranberry meatballs above.
To wrap it all up…
… Yes, it really is that easy to create a variety of delicious and wholesome meals that contain all of your favorite fall flavors. Whether you whip up a light but tasty soup or salad, or a hearty and filling crockpot dish, you’ll love every step of the process, and every bite that you create as well. So, which one are you excited to try first?
Something I have struggled with since I was young is allergies to cheap metals. When I was three my mom took me to get my ears pierced. My very first pair of ear rings was real solid gold with my birthstone in them. I loved them and they stayed with me my whole life, until now they are missing. Anyhow, as a child I loved those first ear rings but as a girl you know girls want lots of different ear rings to choose from. However as I aged I remember by age seven I started getting other earrings and they were the cheap affordable ones. I would itch and swell turning red in misery I would go drying later to my mom. My mom soon realized I was allergic to cheap metals. Ever since it has truly been a chore to hunt for ear rings I could ware. Not to mention the extra cost they typically are.
Sadly I was one of the 37 percent of all women who have cheap metal allergies.
I wore these for seven days only to discover these truly work. I am very pleased at the quality of these earrings. I am so happy to of found a company that truly provides a solution to metal allergy sufferers. I have tried other types I have seen here of there. But they were not even close to the quality of these Studex. At their online shop in Amazon you can see the simple beauty of variety they offer.
At their website they even offer great reasons to start your own ear piercing business and all the supplies you will need, which was super interesting. You know I love small business and it is yet another great way to create local commerce. Go to Studex.com to see the video.
1 in 3 women suffer from metal allergies and will have discomfort wearing cheap store earrings. Studex is truly the right choice for me after all these years. They offer earring studs for men, women and children. If you want to pierce your childrens ears I highly recommend you start with Studex as their first pair of studs, why risk giving them discomfort.
I am so happy with these. I have two ear piercing. You can purchase different size studs to create your look you desire. Studex I believe would make a great gift as well! With that said why not enter their contest from a company I now trust that has been in business since 1976.

There is no shame in admitting to yourself if you are struggling and seeking help. I used to be embarrassed with admittance of such things but not anymore. I like to be transparent to help others.
We all know the simple things like praying, breathing, eat well, exercise, sleep to help the issues. But what do you do if your doing all that and still struggle at times?
Recently I was at my natural foods & remedies store. I spoke with a homeopathic Doctor about anxiety and stress. They suggested this product I had never heard of before. I don't like taking prescription medicines if I can help it. But she spoke to me how she takes this herself and it is all natural and can help avoid a prescription. I truly prefer natural ways to handle stress and anxiety. I have been having a major life shift and was struggling. To be honest it was time to do something for myself to feel better. So I took Theanine Serene. I had tried other things briefly in the past with no results. With this I did! Same day!
It gives such a sense of balance, calm & relaxation not only for my body but mind. I could tell such a major difference in my day. I only take this on days I am struggling, however it is safe enough to take daily. It works best in the early am on an empty stomach but you can take anytime. Some people take this to sleep better at night successfully.
Theanine Serene with Relora from Source Naturals contains the amino acid L-theanine to support relaxation and focused attention, and the calming neurotransmitter GABA.
The Relora is made from philodendron & magnolia to calm anxiety. Also has Holy Leaf extract to help calm.
Suitable for vegetarians. No yeast, dairy, egg, gluten, soy or wheat. Contains no sugar, salt, preservatives or artificial color, flavor or fragrance. Only one g of carbs.
This is working wonders for me. I highly recommend it. If you click my link above I do get a small commission. However I myself now buy this online because I can get it so much cheaper this way than in the shop. I am saving 70%!
Recently I was sent a skin cleanser product called Cliradex Light and was asked to provide a review. I had never heard of Cliradex before but, after using the product for some time, I am now very grateful I did. Talk about perfect timing. My eyes have been suffering for two years--yes, you heard that right--two years of constant irritation. I could not for the life of me figure out the cause of this daily redness.
The typical culprits for eye irritation did not apply to me. I don't suffer from allergies and I don't have dry eyes. The thought never occurred to me that the redness could be caused by the four different types of facial cleansers I used every day. I wanted to test this theory and try Cliradex around my eyes for a week.
Before I tell you my results let me tell you the facts about Cliradex Light. It is an advanced foaming cleanser with 4-Terpineol. 4-Terpineol is the most important component of Tea Tree Oil. It will in fact do many things for your skin, but it also kills Demodex mites. In case you do not know, Demodex mites are tiny mites that can live near your eye lashes and cause itchy red swelling and crusty skin. Simply, yuck! Fortunately 4-Terpineol can treat and rid you of that condition if you ever find yourself with it. Cliradex Light is easy to obtain because it does not require a prescription. The product is also non-toxic and preservative-free, which especially appealed to me.
I first needed to test whether my facial washing products were causing redness in my eyes in the morning. I used Cliradex Light both morning and night for one week and these were the results:
1. I no longer needed to use eye makeup remover, because Cliradex gently washed my face and eye area.
2.My eyes and surrounding skin were no longer irritated.
3. Cliradex Light did not dry out my skin.
4. Cliradex helped to wash my eye area without causing redness! I was thrilled.
This was an interesting find. According to my week-long test, my other cleansers were indeed causing some of my daily eye redness. I will admit that not all of my eye redness went away, but my eyes looked at least 60 percent better daily! I was very pleased. Who knew my eyes had been sensitive to my facial products? Sadly, I had been putting in high-strength, chemically laden eye drops on a daily basis to counter eye redness, only to find out that long-term use of drops like that were not good for my eyes. Now with Cliradex Light, I will not need my eye drops as often and this makes me very happy.
If you struggle with sensitive eyes or other skin conditions such as Anterior Blepharitis, Posterior Blepharitis, or more, then I highly suggest trying this product. And to make things better, Cliradex always offers free shipping.
You can find Cliradex by visiting their web site here.
Fuel to fight. Nutrition to win. It was created by Marine Special Operations Forces in Afghanistain.

Ok the taste to me is so much better than the energy shots you get at the gas station. And we all know those are not good for you any way. I love they offer different flavors. They offer two different levels of natural caffeine. Focused ... this product really is focused on doing what you really need or ever wanted an energy shot to do. I do not normally take energy shots but I simply had to support this veteran owned business and see what they had to offer. It really is as good as they claimed on the show Shark Tank. I loved seeing them on Shark Tank and was happy the Sharks did a deal with this company. Head on over to check out their site to see all they have to offer. They have more products than just energy shots! They keep manufacturing here in the USA supporting our economy.

I just love summer. But I also love being a Jennie-O Switch Circle Blogger. May's shipment brought a lot of joy to my family and others. I received these three turkey breast. Cajun Style, Oven Roasted, and Sun Dried Tomato. I did not want to keep all the Jennie-O goodness to myself so I gave two of them away to other people to try Jennie-O for themselves. As for myself I kept the Sun Dried Tomato turkey breast to create a brand new summer sandwich salad. A cool dish with a new twist. This was so much fun to think up and make.
I call it Summer Jubilee Turkey Salad. This was fun to create and simple. I wanted it to be bright, fresh, tasty and very easy to make. In the picture below is everything you need. Adjust the amounts of everything you use based on how much of course you'd like to make. I made a large bowl to share with others.
That's it. No other seasoning needed. It is low fat to the max. No mayo needed. This Summer Jubilee Turkey Salad is simple, easy, low fat and fantastic in taste. It is a great tribute to summer and it's colorful abundance. It is great for dieters yet perfect for anyone in love with flavor. Good clean eating at it's finest.
Have you ever stopped to think about ph balance for the human body. Most of us do not. I know for most of my life I didn't. But somewhere along the way on the information highway I learned of pH balance. My knowledge of this topic has grown a little more than I used to. But I still have so much to learn. I will share with you today tidbits of information I learned. Also I will share how to test your pH at home yourself.
If your body is to acidic it will reek havoc on your health. It can come in the form of: 1. cancer 2. fibromyalgia 3. diabetes 4. MS 5. heart diseases 6. brittle bones 7. arthritis if it continues over the long haul and possibly more. If your new to being to acidic, it can affect your immune system in so many ways. Just think about any uncomfortable health alignment and it can come from to much acid in your body.
But how do you know what level is right? If our level is off, how do we fix it?
First to see if your pH is on target simply purchase these Health Wiser pH Test Strips. You can use these for urine or saliva testing. You hold the strip in your specimen for only 15 seconds. Then you have to wait 15 more seconds for the test to fully develop.
Below I shared my test.
After the test is developed you compare it to the pH chart provided. A reading range of pH 6.5-7.5 is perfect. pH below 6.5 is acidic. If that happens then you should test at least three times in a day to get your average reading so you know what your dealing with. If it is over 7.5 then being too alkaline can also possibly be a problem. Balance is key. You should not eat two hours before the test.
Try to avoid acidic foods and drinks if your having an issue. Do some research to find out what foods your eating that are to acidic. Educate yourself.
Some ways to alkaline your body are:
I am not getting any younger. As I age I have noticed slight changes in my vision. I am not yet to 5o but getting closer everyday. This year it has opened my eyes to eye health. Why do I try to keep my body healthy but forget about my eyes? I think most people actually do this too.
Did you know that you can get Age Related Macular Degeneration? What is this condition? An eye condition associated with ageing in which the yellowish spot macula in the middle of the retina breaks down or becomes damaged as a result of leaking blood vessels. Symptoms include blurry central vision and diminished color perception. Scary.
But thankfully this can be treated and maybe even reversed with emerging treatments! It is most common in ages 55 plus.
I wanted to get this FREE information booklet into your hands today so you can read all about Age Related Macular Degeneration or give it to someone you love.
I am so thankful to get this for myself. I am more empowered now so as I age so I can stay on top of my eye health. I want to see brightly into my future!
I love Chinese egg rolls they are simply fantastic to me. But lately I have to watch my carbs. This month I set out to fix this problem and I did. As a Jennie-O Switch Circle blogger I was sent their all natural turkey sausage. I tried it out in making a egg roll in a bowl. It really took me away!
What you need:
Ok the great thing about using Jennie-O's all natural trukey sausage is that is it only has 5 grams of fat! It is zero carbs and has 13 grams of protein. The sodium count is much lower than other sausage brands that I have compared it too.
This dish is so simple and a serving is only around 6-9 carbs depending on if you add a few frozen sweet peas for color.
This is enough to serve a large family or save for other meals during the week. Or you can cut the tube in half and the bag in half and make a smaller amount.
This fresh dish is healthy and fast. You just can not beat the flavor and the time it takes to prepare. Amazing.
I love mineral and powder full coverage foundations. You can layer them as little or as much as you want. Your totally in control. But the price of our favorite powder or mineral foundations are just to much.
In order to preserve your makeup investment you can make it last longer. Or take some of your old compacts that have a little left and grow it to make that dollar go further.
What you will need:
I can not tell you how much corn starch or cacao powder to use in this because each persons blend will be different. I would start with what is left of your compact or all of it if it is full. Start maybe adding a full heaping table spoon of corn starch.
Actually add as much powder as you want to make the size batch you desire. Start adding the cacao as you think you will need last. Go light on it you can always slowly make it darker as needed and build it up to your skin shade or desired glow. Sample a little as you blend each shade until you get what you want. If your testing it as you go you will get it right! Do not worry. Just make sure your sampling a tiny bit thats been blended well.
As you see next the colors all stand out at first but you must grind and mix well until you see no other color run. Take a look at how dark the below picture is compared to the next one where the powders are all well blended. Do you see all the colors running? At first your mixture will be darker but do not fear it will lighten as you blend.
Now look at the finished product! It was my perfect shade. You should apply your makeup as you go along and test it until it is built up to your desired shade. You will be surprised even if fair skinned how much cocoa powder you will actually need. As you grind it together It will blend well and give you such a fantastic natural glow.
I have found that this blend helps with oily skin. It also does not dry out the face. I have combination skin so I was a great tester! This will be perfect for summer too. It is build-able on your face and as light or heavy as you wish. I have sensitive skin and this does not break me out. Just simply clean makeup.
I suggest storing it in a small glass bowl to keep it clean from plastics inevitable toxins.
This will transform that expensive compact to a much high volume longer use. Your in control and it feels great to make your own makeup and save so much money.
Be frugal and look good while doing it!

BMI is short for body mass index. It is a measure of body fat based on your weight in relation to your height. Knowing what your weight is and what it actually should be for your height and build is good information to know. It will help you in monitoring and helping to ward of cancer, heart deisese, diabetes, and many other hosts of health problems that can arise by to much weight. Most say I want to loose weight or I need to gain weight but do not know a healthy target to shoot for. The body mass index is your guide to tell you just that.
Recently I was given a Blue Tooth Easy Home body fat scale. It is supposed to measure body weight, body fat, body water, muscle mass, BMI, BMR, bone mass and visceral fat. I received it free to review. Here are my bullet points on the product.
In summary I think the scale is still a great scale even with the app issues. It will do the job you need it to do. And if a scale could be handsome.... this one is in looks.
