Healthy Halloween Eats!

Healthy Hallow1031-1een Eats!

Squash soup in pumpkin bowls and clementines dipped in dark chocolate!

Ingredients
For the Bowls:
4 small baking pumpkins (such as hooligan or sugar pie), acorn squash or sweet dumpling squash
2 teaspoons su1031-2gar
Kosher salt
For the Soup:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 small onion, chopped
Kosher salt
2 sprigs thyme
1 medium butternut or kuri squash (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons
heavy cream (optional)
Freshly ground pepper
For the Toppings:
Pepitas (hulled green pumpkin seeds)
Sourdough and/or pumpernickel croutons
Paprika, chili powder or Spanish pimenton
Crisp prosciutto, serrano ham or bacon
Fried onions
Fried sage or parsley leaves
ADD CHECKED ITEMS TO GROCERY LIST
Directions
Make the bowls: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Use a paring knife to cut a large circle around the stem of each pumpkin (make a zigzag cut, if desired). Remove the lid and scoop out the seeds and fibers. Sprinkle the inside of each with 1/2 teaspoon each sugar and salt. Place the pumpkins and lids on a baking sheet; roast until tender, 20 to 35 minutes, depending on their size.
Meanwhile, make the soup: Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the onion and 1 teaspoon salt. Strip the thyme leaves into the pot, increase the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the squash and sugar and cook, stirring, until glazed, 3 to 4 minutes. Add 5 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until the squash is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
Working in batches, transfer the soup to a blender, crack the lid to let steam escape and puree until smooth; return to the saucepan (or puree directly in the pan with an immersion blender). Stir in the heavy cream, if desired. Season with salt and pepper, and top as desired.

Shakeology

I already know the benefits of drinking Shakeology every day first hand.

I know it’s WAY healthier and has WAY more nutrients and superfoods for me and my baby while I’ve been pregnant and nursing than a protein shake or protein bar.

My husband’s blood pressure dropped because of it for the first time in years.

A common misconception is that it’s “just a protein shake”.

One of the girls on our team just shared this-

“Another resource that was a clincher for me was an independent review of the ingredients. I’m always skeptical of products unless there are independent reviews. I am hesitant to put anything into my body without abundant info. 😉This guy is skeptical and tries to avoid bias. He values empirical evidence and is aware of possible skews that are possible with research that is done. And at the end of the evaluation, he gives shakeology a thumbs up. IDK if anyone else is as skeptical as I am, but it was helpful for me.”

What is Shakeology

💡A lot of people ask me what IS Shakeology?

I just wanted to share this from my sweet friend who has been on our team for almost a year! 💗💗

“On Tuesday evening I went to my new doctor who is working on helping me repair damage to my thyroid, adrenal glands, stomach and pancreas from Lyme disease.

Anyway, after reviewing my blood work he told me how surprised he was that I wasn’t deficient in several vitamins like he expected.

He asked me what supplements I am taking and I told him I take no supplements but I do drink Shakeology every day and I asked him if he had heard of it.

He said he had and that was definitely the reason that all of my nutrients were good. He told me that Shakeology is wonderful! I agree”heather-shakeology

What’s holding you back?

What’s holding you back?

I know I was SO nervous to become a coach! I didn’t know if ANYONE would want my help.

But I knew if I wanted something I’ve never had, I had to do something I’ve never done!

Now 14 months later, I am SO grateful for the opportunity coaching has been in my life and how I have been able to help hundreds of people be happier, healthier and have more energy for their kids!
This is truly the BEST job EVER helping others live a healthy lifestyle!

I literally had NO idea everything that was in store for me when I enrolled as a coach! I had NO idea I would have the opportunities to travel to the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Nashville, Vegas, St. George Utah, California and New Orleans.

I had NO idea the kind of family-like community I would be a part of and that I would create one of my very own!

I had NO idea the unbelievable amount of resources, support, encouragement, friendships and personal growth I would have!

As a nurse, I have cared for hundreds of people who have NOT lived a healthy lifestyle. I can tell you from experience the reward of helping others with preventative medicine is FAR greater than trying to “fix” years of unhealthy habits with costly medical intervention.
