Creamy Dairy Free Pumpkin Turkey Chili {paleo + dairy free}

Ahhh I’VE MISSED YOU! How did we go from rocking it out with easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese last week to not talking until now?! It’s my bad, I know. Somewhere in between travel and catching the worst head cold I’ve had in forever I just sort of lost some traction.

It happens, sometimes.

The season change struggle is real.

But it’s nothing we can’t fix with some creamy pumpkin turkey chili. Don’t ya think?

This creamy dairy free pumpkin turkey chili is a dream! Easy to make, dairy free, incredibly healthy and delicious!

 

I’ve been thinking about making this soup for a very long time. Dreaming of it’s creamy, cozy pumpkin perfection. And last week, mid-cold, post vacation vibes, it was time to bring it to our dinner table.

And it it was literally perfect. 

Like a so-totally-november-I-can’t-believe-it’s-already-snowing-luscious gift to ourselves. Because we all know the power of coming home to a delicious bowl of soup when the temperature starts to drop and changing leaves turn into falling flakes. I know Seattle might be a little ahead of other parts of the country on this one but I know you still feel me.

Soup = the best part about cold weather. Especially when it involves pumpkin.

Easy Dairy Free Cauliflower Mac and Cheese {vegan + paleo}

YOU. GUYS.

Easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese is in the HOUSE and it has got me all 😭 over here cuz I’m so excited to share it with you.

Because a good recipe for mac and cheese is never something you should keep to yourself.

I mean, you can MAKE mac and cheese and keep it for yourself – that’s pretty standard practice around our house. But the recipe, well that’s something that get’s better the more you spread around the cheesy-comfort-in-a-bowl LOVE.

Easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese is the healthiest and most delicious way to satisfy your comfort food cravings without any regrets!

I have to be honest with you, this is not reaaaaal mac and cheese. Like the kind with noodles and actual cheese. But I’m guessing you already figured that out cuz you guys are smart like that.

I just knew you would get understand where I’m going with this one 😉

This is a cauliflower dish dressed up like mac and cheese for those days when you just really neeeeeed some comfort food in your life, but wanna keep it healthy and guilt free.

And also spoiler alert – the sauce doesn’t taste exactly like cheese, really it’s more reminiscent of cheese. But I’m pretty sure it’s about as cheesy as you can get without being actual cheese. And it does satisfy exactly the same thing that real cheese does.

Is that weird? Maybe. Awesome? Absolutely.

Especially when draped over tenderly steamed cauliflower and loaded up into a bowl for all the comfort and zero regret.

Like literally none. Says the girl who has eaten three (small…ish) bowls of it in one sitting.

This is, essentially, a mac and cheese for everyone.

My dairy free / gluten free / keto / paleo / vegan / health minded peeps – I have definitely got you covered with this one.

😍😍😍

watermelon strawberry quencher {vegan + paleo}

I’m a little embarrassed to admit how long I’ve had this simple recipe floating around my summer. Landing itself after workouts, for friend-loaded-out-of-state-brunches, and introducing it to tequila before YOU!! It’s a shame, really. Not to mention the fact that the weather is already cooling down and we’re all thinking more about sweaters and soup (ahem like me, who’s going to be making one later today) than we are the necessity to cool the EF down IMMEDIATELY.

My timing may be a little off, but you’ll have to accept my sincerest apology. Because all of these reasons aren’t enough to keep my from introducing you to the summer beverage love of my life, – the watermelon strawberry quencher.

Watermelon strawberry quencher! The most hydrating watermelon drink you've ever had! Made with only fresh watermelon, frozen strawberries, and lime juice.
 
Literally a perfect summer drink – this watermelon strawberry quencher is icy cold, refreshing, hydrating, and sooo mega easy to make.

And has proved itself to be a hydration savior throughout the warmer months.

It got it’s start, when for some reason I decided in the middle of Seattle’s massive (for us, okay? Don’t judge me!) heat wave, I took up RUNNING. Running, guys! This is kind of a big deal for me.

Cuz for as long as anyone has known me I have been the professed “I will never be a runner” .. and “it’s just sooo boring” type of a lady. But then I discovered this awesome app called aaptiv, and things will never be the same. Hellllo endorphin high!

They create running, strength training, yoga and even meditation programs that are led by fitness professionals and backed with music to keep you motivated and up to speed. And with their help, running suddenly became… fun. Something I nevvvvver thought I would say. If you need a mix up in your exercise routine I definitely recommend checking them out.

And that’s how in the midst of the heat and sweat the crazy in me thought… why not sweat some more?

LOL GOOD IDEA, NYSSA. Until your face is beet red and you can’t stay hydrated to save your life.

At least not until you discover things like this watermelon strawberry quencher.

Also known as a icy blended beverage lovers dream.
