For the Love of Pumpkin!

Why do we have such a fascination with pumpkin every autumn? Whatever the reason, pumpkin is a delicious and versatile addition to your meals and snacks. And I’m not just talking baked pumpkin deliciousness like pumpkin pie or pumpkin breads… I’m talking some new ways to add pumpkin to your plate with a Pumpkin Vinaigrette, a Pumpkin-Nilla Chai Smoothie, and Pumpkin Power Bites!

Recipe: Spicy Mexi-Bowl (Gluten-Free!)

This spicy Mexican-inspired quinoa and beans bowl is a quick to prepare, heart-healthy, and nutrition-rich meal that can be made ahead for take-to-work lunches or mix up a big batch for a family dinner.  You could even top it with an over-easy egg and make it a breakfast.

Recipe: Coco-Choco-Chia Pudding (Gluten-Free!)

This Coco-Choco-Chia Pudding is one of three gluten-free, treats (snacks or desserts) we are showcasing at our next Make & Take Meal Prep Workshop but we love it so much we are sharing it with you here too. By the way, this recipe is also dairy-free and vegan! And yes, it can be all these things and still delicious!

Vitruvian Man Logo

The Vitruvian Man is a sketch done by Leonardo Da Vinci which represents the “perfect proportions.” The circle and square surround the man providing touch-points for the arms and legs as they move.

Why we chose it?

It’s an art and a science: Leonardo’s new twist – to place the circle and square on top of each other – combine science and art. This is similar to our approach.

Many body types can fit. We like that a body with little fat and a body with lots of fat can both fit into the circle and square.

HelloFresh Meal Review: Sweet and Savory Plum Flatbreads with Ricotta, Charred Onion, and Arugula

HelloFresh categorizes this meal as a breakfast according to the recipe card. I think this would make a divine breakfast but it is just a little too much work for me to do while on my first cup of coffee. Don’t get me wrong, I love a hot breakfast. In fact, I have a hot breakfast pretty much every day! I can cook a veggie omelet with one eye closed and one hand on that coffee mug; but this recipe was just a bit too involved for that level of attention (or rather that lack of attention…).
