Recipe Roundup: Healthy Fall Feasts


This time of year, everyone is talking about Pumpkin Spice Lattes, baked goods, and Fall treats.

Trust me, I love treats as much as the next girl, and pumpkin is a nutritional powerhouse, but there’s no pumpkin in a PSL! (Probably not a huge surprise to anyone, but still.)

I’m working on finding ways to enjoy Fall flavors while still nourishing my body and making sure I refuel…here are a few recipes I am going to be trying this September:

Curried Pumpkin Lentil Soup

Cider-Dijon Pork Chops with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apples

Perfect Roast Chicken
