Monthly Healthy Recipes - All Things Pumpkin!

Hey, everyone!
As most of you who have followed my blog for awhile know, Fall is my favorite season and I am obsessed with all things pumpkin. So, all of the new healthy recipes I tried this month have pumpkin in them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! :)
Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse - I used regular butterscotch pudding (sugar-free stuff is awful for you) and low-fat cottage cheese.
Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes with Dark Chocolate Chips - I used regular flour because I don't have whole wheat. Still really healthy.
Reese's Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups - I omitted the first three and melted chocolate chips.
Pumpkin Nut Butter - I used natural peanut butter.

Here's a recipe I made up. I call it "Fall Yogurt":

Vanilla fat free greek yogurt, 3 tbsp pumpkin puree, 1 tsp natural pb (optional), 1 tsp honey, 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon and nutmeg (1 tsp mini semi-sweet chocolate chips optional). You can add more or less or all ingedients to suit your tastes. :)
PS: The pregnancy is going great so far. I'm loving every second of knowing a precious little miracle is growing inside of me. I decided to stop with the monthly weight-loss blogs that I was going to do the next couple of months and focus instead of continuing to eat healthy (not on losing weight ... being pregnant is not the time to try to do that ... I don't know what I was thinking). Anyway, so my monthly weight-loss blog will be replaced with a monthly pregnancy update and baby bump photos blog instead. :-D

Until next time,



  1. Love reading you recipes and hearing about your progressing pregnancy!

  2. Congrats on the pregnancy Amy!
    I think it's a great idea to do a monthly baby bump update instead of weight loss now that you are preggers :)
    Your gonna be a great mommy just as you are a great role model
