Hey Babe, Here's 3 Slimming Recipes for Fall!

So you are working on your goals, you are motivated, and you're ready to dial in on your nutrition, ...right? Well, we're here to help (Suppress your appetite with our Beauty Body Bundle Pack to truly get the best bang for your buck)! Here are 3 slimming recipes for Fall that taste delicious and make you feel amazing! 

1. Hey, Pumpkin

Pumpkin is not only delicious, but is also a nutritious food, full of vitamins and fiber! According to History.com, "Pumpkins are low in calories, fat, and sodium and high in fiber. They are good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, potassium, protein, and iron." Try this Pumpkin Oat Pancake recipe for a healthy, delicious breakfast idea!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup milk of choice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil 
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (about 1 small lemon, juiced)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup oat flour 
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves or allspice

Instructions:

  1. Stir together the pumpkin puree, milk, coconut oil, lemon juice and maple syrup (or honey). Beat in the eggs. 
  2. Whisk together oat flour, baking soda, salt and spices.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until the dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Lightly oil the surface of your pan with coconut oil. 
  5. Once the surface of the pan is hot, pour ¼ cup of batter onto the pan. Let the pancake cook for about 3 minutes, until bubbles begin to form around the edges.
  6. Once the underside is golden, flip it with a spatula and cook for another 90 seconds, until golden brown on both sides. 

2. Salad Makeover

Give that boring salad a makeover by adding some fall veggies like winter squash and beets! Try this beet salad for a great Fall option that won't hurt the waistline!

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium red beets, washed and dried

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 4 cups arugula

  • 1 Belgian Endive, chopped 

  • 1/2 cup diced walnuts 

  • 1/2 cup Feta Cheese crumbles, low fat or fat free

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Kosher or Sea Salt to taste

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Brush beets with olive oil and wrap individually in foil and bake for approximately 1 hour, or until tender.

3. Allow beets to cool at room temperature

4. Peel the thin outer skin of the beets and cut into 1/4" slices. Store beets in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. 

5. Layer salad ingredients by placing arugula and beets on a serving platter. Top with Belgian Endive, walnuts, Feta Cheese and top off with freshly ground black pepper and drizzle with dressing (we recommend using lemon and lime for dressing).

3.  Don't Kale our vibe

Kale chips are an amazing snack, side, appetizer, you name it! (PS- it's easy and quick too!)

  2. Remove leaves from the stems of the kale and tear into large pieces.

  3. Wash and spin the leaves until dry.

  4. Put kale leaves into a large bowl. Massage in oil until coated in oil.

  5. Sprinkle the spices/seasonings and toss.

  6. Spread the kale onto the prepared baking sheet into a single layer, being sure not to overcrowd the kale.
