Pumpkin Spice Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone’s favourite cookie gets a makeover for Fall with my Pumpkin Spice Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’ve got the perfect not-too-cakey, not-too-crispy consistency that you love in a chocolate chipper, but with a touch of pumpkin and fall spices. Get my recipe here.

Stuffed PeppersTomato, Tofu, & Feta Stuffed PeppersNot only are these stuffed peppers super tasty, clean, and filling, but they’re vegetarian (and easily made vegan), full of fibre & veggies (and easily made gluten free), and are super duper easy to make. What more could you ask for in a dinner?! Get my recipe here.

Skinny German Apple CakeSkinny German Apple CakeA good low-cal dessert is hard to come by, but look no further than my Skinny German Apple Cake. It tastes rich and decadent and naughty…but at only has 125 calories a slice, it makes a satisfying guilt-free Autumn dessert. Get ready to peel some apples, and click here for my recipe. 

Spicy Butternut Squash SoupSpicy Butter Squash, Kale, & Black Bean SoupThis very autumnal-tasting soup is exceptionally filling, beyond tasty, vegan, & 110% clean. Full of superfoods, fibre, and protein, this squash-based soup is far more exciting than your average, ho-hum butternut options. It’s also very low glycemic index, and is great for virtually all dieters (Paleo and South Beach-friendly, gluten free, etc etc.) The only things it doesn’t have? Animal products and extra calories/fat/badness.

My Pumpkin Spice Protein Muffins are a little, protein-packed, 76 calorie tastes of fall, and make a great afternoon snack or breakfast on-the-go! Get my recipe here. 

ChiliHearty Vegan ChiliNormally, chili evokes images of huge pots being stirred by hunky firefighters, large amounts of ground beef, and big dollops of sour cream. Not exactly super-duper-healthy. Forget all that. My Hearty Vegan Chili is jam-packed with superfoods, protein, and fibre– but stays low cal, low fat, and guilt-free. It’ll warm you up and keep you satisfied, without breaking the caloric bank. It’s the best of both worlds! Hunky firefighters not included. Click here for the recipe.
