Pumpkin Pie Vegan Overnight Oats

Overnight oats have been all the rage these days.  I have Fall-ified this popular and speedy breakfast solution by incorporating pumpkin, October’s favorite vegetable.  I figured the only thing that could make vegan overnight oats healthier would be adding a vegetable.  It isn’t always easy incorporating vegetables into a busy day so why not start with […]

Garlic Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus is already a super healthy snack option that can be served as a spread or dip with just about anything.  To make this plant-based protein snack even healthier, I’m adding fall’s favorite vegetable, pumpkin.  It works so well in this dish and adds a subtle orange hue that whispers, “I’m festive” when set out at a […]
