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?
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.
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.
