It's fall...break out the pumpkin bites!

Pumpkin Bites (AMAZINGLY GOOD)

Makes 4 -6

-4 T of dry ingredients (with Arbonne protein powder, oats, coconut, almond meal or any combo of those.)
-2 T nut butter
-2 T pumpkin puree (store-bought or homemade)
-1/4 t cinnamon
-1/8 t nutmeg
-1/8 t cloves
-pinch of dried ginger
-pinch of sea salt
-splash of vanilla extract

-Sweetener of choice (I rolled with Stevia, but if you like to use liquid sweetener, you may have to add to the dry ingredients).

1. Pulse the dry ingredients in the food processor until you have a powder.

2. Add in the remaining ingredients and pulse to combine.

3. Taste a little bit for spice and sweetness- adjust as needed. (If you use honey as your sweetener, you may have to add more dry ingredients)

4. The mixture will be very wet. Do not be afraid- just roll into balls using your hands or melon scooper and store in the fridge to harden slightly. In the fridge overnight allows the flavors to mingle and they taste even better.

Clean Eating on a Stick

I think some people think I drink shakes

all day and don't eat real food.  

Beware of any quick fix weight loss/health scheme.  

Just eat REAL food.
I love food.

I love meat.
I love meat free of hormones and that was not fed GMO grains and corn.

Here is an EASY healthy dinner.

1 pound of grass fed beef sirloin
1-2 Organic Bell Peppers*
1-2 Zucchini* or Yellow Squash*
1 - Medium Onion
1 package whole mushrooms
1T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1T Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper
Mix and let it be all happy together in the bowl for 1-2 hours.
*These need to be organic because they are on the Dirty Dozen list 

 Kids like it because it is on a stick. 

Grill it and serve it up with some Lundberg non GMO Short Grain Brown Rice

28 Day Clean Eating Challenges usually start the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month.
