4 Fast and Flavorsome Fall Foods!

Who doesn't love a nice steaming bowl of CORN CHOWDER?? This delicious comfort food can be incredibly easy to make! How does 10 minutes sound? You don't have to feel guilty about indulging either, because corn is a source of potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. It's also low in calories. By using low-fat or fat-free dairy in the recipe and incorporating herbs for flavor, you'll be able to enjoy a much healthier version of this soup than you're likely to find in stores or restaurants. Did I mention it only takes 10 minutes to make? Yum!
Want to give your baked goods an extra special holiday blast? How about CRANBERRY PUMPKIN MUFFINS? They're tangy, they're beautiful, they're packed with Vitamins A, C, and K, as well as plenty of Fiber. These muffins are a triple threat!
When was the last time you purchased granola? It can be pretty pricey! Besides this saving you oodles of cash, making it will bring all kinds of pleasant aromas into your home. Getting a serving of whole grains doesn't get much more enjoyable than having a bowl of homemade CRISPY GRANOLA. And you can make this recipe your own by choosing your favorite mix-ins.
Can't get enough pumpkin? Me either! That's why I had to hunt down this recipe for delicious PUMPKIN SMOOTHIES. Everyone I have made these for raves about them, saying that having one is like drinking a pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. They really are THAT GOOD!! The best part? Well it could be that this recipe is so incredibly simple that you likely have most of what you need on hand already.... Or that it takes barely any time at all to whip up something this tasty.... MY favorite part is that something this sweet can be so incredibly low in fat and sugar. Let's not forget the fiber and vitamins A, and K that pumpkin provides! Enjoying this smooth treat is a WIN/WIN/WIN!!!

So, what's your favorite fall treat? We love to hear from you! Until next time...
