Wanted: Pumpkin Lovers

I'll warn you, if you hate pumpkin, you can skip this post right now. (Go ahead & take a tool around while you're here, at least. Enjoy.) If you're on the pumpkin fence, so to speak, stay with me. If you're a pumpkin lover, I've got a winner for you.

I have this as part of my breakfast sometimes. It's also a nice snack with my afternoon coffee. (Mmmmm ~ afternoon coffee......) Plain, fat free yogurt is certainly a staple in my refrigerator. We eat it with fruit, sometimes mixed in with cereal as well. It can be great for cooking & baking, but I have come discover the wonderful effects of sour cream in baked goods. (Another day, another post.)

If you aren't used to the lack of ALL THAT SUGAR in regular yogurts, I still encourage you to try this. If you start with mixing the plain yogurt in with vanilla yogurt, you can surely make the switch entirely at some point.

Key ingredients:

Plain, fat free yogurt

Canned pumpkin

Nuts ~ Pecans lend a nice, sweet flavor, but walnuts are yummy too. Don't forget to toast them in the oven! For a delicious variation, instead of raw nuts, I'll mix in peanut butter. Now that's good!

Flax ~ You had to figure....

Cinnamon ~ ....these would show up again.

Golden raisins ~ Yes, golden. Regular ol' raisins are ok, but there's something about the golden variety. It adds a special sweetness.

So now you've got crunchy, you've got chewy, you've got sweet, and you've got healthy!

So you just mix it all together and eat, right? This looks perfect for breakfast. I've been in a breakfast slump for about a year. I have to eat it, but I'm so sick of my regular options.

And thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.

Also, after reading through some of yours, I will go to bed singing S,s,s,s-A,a,a,a-F,f,f,f....So thanks for that :)

Ok, YUM! This is what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow, but I'm going to add flax oil and some wheat germ, too.
