I get really, really, really into pumpkin anything…esp pumpkin.pie.oatmeal. Instead of whipping up the typical, boring, sugary pumpkin pie this fall, try using canned pumpkin puree in healthier ways.
Let’s all pull our heads out of sand & remember this fun fact: during the holidays it’s pretty common to pack on the pounds. So modifications/substitutions should be practiced on the reg. Personally I’d rather save my pie cals for wine cals.
Anyway, you can’t go wrong with this oatmeal- it’s full of nostalgic flavors that remind me of fall: cinnamon, pecans, pumpkin, all spice. Plus there’s only 267 calories + 8 grams of protein- perfect for a pre-workout snack. Hayyyyyy fall!
