Guilty of Being "Basic"? Get the Skinny on Pumpkin!

Pumpkin spice lattes, flannels, skinny jeans, boots. All of these things scream Fall, but  many would call them "basic". We say- embrace it! Here's why you should rock the Fall trends and obsess over pumpkin. 

1. The whole package

  • Pumpkin is full of vitamin A, which helps to improve eyesight.
  • Pumpkin is a great source of dietary fiber, helping to keep you full and allowing you to eat less (pair this with our Ultimate Beauty Body Formula for the perfect dynamic duo).
  • Pumpkin is orange and thus contains a lot of beta-carotene, which is known to fight against the development of cancer.  
  • Pumpkin is the new post-workout food! 1 cup of pumpkin has 564mg of potassium, that's even more than bananas! 

2. Skinny Pumpkin Recipe

While there are tons of pumpkin recipes out there, here is one of our favorites! 

Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Shake


  • 1/4 c. pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup or sweetener of choice (optional)
  • 3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 c. milk (any milk works!)
  • 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 small banana, frozen
  • sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

    Instructions: Blend and sprinkle with cinnamon. So easy, so delicious! 

    3. Be Basic.

    Bottom line: embrace the pumpkin. Embrace the flannels, the beanies, the boots. Add your own little flair to your outfit to make it you and unique.
