What I Ate Wednesday… WITHOUT the Pumpkin

It may be hard to realize, but there are foods other than pumpkin to be excited about come Fall. I really do understand the appeal of the orange squash; however I know of at least one blogger out there who is probably getting a little tired of the pumpkin-all-the-time mindset.

Today I’m here to remind you that there are many other awesome Fall foods that can be enjoyed WITHOUT pumpkin.


There are apple recipes…

Apple Pie Granola from Meghan at Clean Eats Fast Feets


Apple Chunk Cinnamon Rolls from Me


Apple Crumb Bars (with Salted Caramel) from Davida at The Healthy Maven


Also delicious cinnamon concoctions…

Cinnamon Vanilla Roasted Chickpeas from Jessie at Jessie Loves to Run


Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal from Lori and Michelle at Purely Twins


Cinnamon Roll Bread from Me


And let’s not forget Cranberries, which can be used in more than just Thanksgiving Dinner…

Cranberry “Banana” Ice Cream from Me


Cranberry Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies from Jenna at Je Na Sais Quoi


Cranberry Whole Wheat Muffins from Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean


I hope these recipes have opened all of your pumpkin-blind eyes who have been eating the vegetable like you will never see it again.

Of course I’m kidding… Pumpkin is one of my favorite foods, so don’t misinterpret this post as me bashing pumpkin. I LOVE the stuff.

Sometimes it’s just nice to have, you know, variety!


Thanks Jenn for hosting this party again! Keep the cute chickpea pictures coming 🙂
