Happy Happy Thursday everybody!!! I’m sure some of y’all are feeling the same stressors that I am this time of year. It’s the juggle of wanting to enjoy all of the delicious Fall & Winter recipes that are being offered, yet still trying to
squeeze into your clothes look cute at all of the Fall & Winter functions. Maybe because it’s sooo hot for sooo long here during the summer that I do as little as possible outside and go to as few a functions as possible during the summer months.
Sounds weird, but if you’re outside for more than 2 seconds around these parts then, profuse sweating is inevitable, I’m not a hermit or anything I swear haha, but dripping in sweat outside of the gym while trying to look cute gets annoying. Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that I feel like my calendar is filled completely for the entire end of the year (which I love btw), of which most functions are also filled with delicious food that I cannot allow into my healthy diet.
I have added a few things into my arsenal to help in keeping me from caving into my cravings, of which most are pumpkin related because yum. My One Carb Snickerdoodle Waffle from the other day is a big help and then there is this smoothie. I’m honestly so proud of this recipe, I feel like it ended up even tastier than I had anticipated. It really just tastes like a rich milkshake that you wouldn’t guess to be on the healthy side. I’m telling y’all this recipe is a keeper 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!
