Loves! Hello! This is the one last little recipe I want to get out to you before the day of gratitude and feasting begins, and it is a GOOD one. This is a recipe for all my side dish lovers out there. The one’s who are into the vibrant colors of the season, and all the delicious flavors that exist on the other side of a hot oven. I see you and I’m here for you today with this recipe for roasted delicata squash stuffed with kale and maple cinnamon roasted mushrooms!
I know we’re a bit last minute with the whole turkey day menu conversation (ahem), but I’m betting there’s a least a few of you out there reading this still searching for that most delicious side dish to bring to the table.
Or maybe you’re reading this after the whole turkey day thing, and just looking for a crazy delicious stuffed squash recipe.
Either way, you’re in luck. Because this one, piled high with tender sautéed kale, maple cinnamon roasted mushrooms (YES!!), bacon (if that’s your thing), and topped with bright and sweet pomegranate seeds and toasty walnuts in all it’s colorful brilliance, is begging you to choose it!
If you listen closely, you might even hear the words…
Happy MONDAY friends! Hope your first few steps into the week are off to a great start. Too soon to tell? Well how about we seal the deal by adding this bulletproof pumpkin spice latte to your morning mix. A cup of this on a brisk October morning is BOUND to jumpstart a kickass week.
First, let’s talk bulletproof coffee.
Are you guys on the train yet? If not, boy are you in for a lovely surprise.
Creamy, indulgent, full of healthy fats, and the perfect fuel to start your day off right.
Here’s what you’ll LOVE about bulletproof coffee:
The solid boost of energy that it gives you. One cup and your morning energy will feel stable and steady all the way until your first meal of the day.
The indulgence of a rich, creamy coffee that gets more nourishing fat into your diet.
An increased level of mental clarity – our brains are made up of about 60% fat, saturated fat being one of the main components of brain cells, making healthy fats an important part of keeping them functioning at a high level.
I’ve been bulletproofing my mornings for at least a couple of years, but only recently did I start playing around with a variety of flavors to keep things interesting. I have a good solid 6 or so that I rotate to keep things fresh, and.. get excited! I’m planning on sharing them all with you over the next few months 🙌🏼
Bulletproof coffee = really good.
Bulletproof coffee + fun flavor combos = infinitely better.
Today’s particular bulletproof variety? Pumpkin spice – the flavor anthem of fall.
It’s officially that time of year where most of us are thinking about pumpkin everything. I even have those incredibly cute little pumpkins of various shapes and colors tucked into all the little corners of our house. You know, in case anyone forgot is was October 😉
And because I’m all about living in the moment – we’re drinking these paleo iced pumpkin spiced latte’s like there will never be another October again.
Originally I stocked up on organic canned pumpkin to put together a bulletproof pumpkin spice latte recipe for you guys, but since it was a particularly sunny and lovely day here in Seattle when I got to recipe testing, I thought – why not throw an iced version out there, too?
(don’t worry, that cozy bulletproof version is on the way, too!)
Because I know that a lot of you are pining for some cozy fall weather in the midst of an autumn heat wave (okay okay maybe I exaggerate, but warm enough where sweaters are not really an option) this paleo iced pumpkin spice latte is here to bridge that gap.
