. . . PUMPKINS!
ha. didn’t see that coming did you . . . or maybe you did since October totes revolves around anything and everything that is missing a tooth, orange, round, with a stem on the tippy-top, and we are alllllll about it.
B U T, anything and everything pumpkins usually follows with a pound or more of sugar. This we are NOT all about.
Then there’s the topic that has nothing to do with pumpkins, and everything to do with our two graphic tees from Laurenly Boutique revolving around our endless love, the sun. They make our hearts smile, even though in the below photo it looks like I could give two chets about life, and I’m boring myself whilst writing this blog . . . but keep going . . . it gets better! So, WOO PUMPKINS. We did some research for you birds, and gathered some of our favorite healthy alternatives for everything pumpkins to keep those bellies happy & healthy because a happy belly is . . . well it’s happy because it’s full & that means you ate . . . ugh, you get the point.

Healthy Pumpkin Spice Granola with Maple :: Grab for the coconut oil instead of canola oil in this recipe
Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes :: say that 10 times fast! YUM. These I have definitely made before, and I love them so mucho!!
Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free Pumpkin Cheesecake :: Did someone say cheesecake? This recipe is GOALS & could be an easy substitute for pumpkin pie!
Vegan Pumpkin Pie Martini :: speaking of pumpkin pie . . . little ones . . . ha we think not . . . 21 & over only!! This is also a one drink martini because holy headache in the morning if you were to drink more than that, ja’feel? SO worth the one & seww festive!
Vegan Pumpkin Spice Drink :: think twice, maybe even ten times before ordering that PSL from Starbucks . . . unfortunately it’s sad to say that they are filled with sugar, fat, and GMO’s (heck-to-the-no). I honestly haven’t had a “PSL” since I was probably 20 years old (I know right, like a year ago ;)), and this is the perfect replacement to get my fall drank on.
Golden Tumeric Milk :: if you aren’t for pumpkins, well then leave, you’re not welcome here. JUST KIDDING, please stayyyy, we love yewww :). Tumeric is all the rage these days, and we dig it, do you? If you’re in the Costa Mesa area we urge you to try the Golden Latte from Neat Coffee!! If you don’t live in the area, take a look at this yummy recipe that can be easily a smoothie OR take-out the bananas, and throw all these ingredients in a pot on your stove top. Mmm, seww yummy & comforting. shop our looks
