Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Guys, in this house, we love our pumpkin flavour! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin overnight oats and now Pumpkin Spice Muffins!

Nutrient Snapshot of Pumpkin

  • Pumpkin, which is part of the winter squash family, is a better source of sugar, compared to their summer squash relatives. Pumpkin is exceptionally high in complex carbohydrates and is medicinal for diabetics and those with digestive problems.
  • It provides vitamins A and C, potassium, and magnesium. It is an excellent source of carotenoids and therefore has anticarcinogenic properties.
  • DON’T FORGET TO EAT THE SEEDS! All squash seeds are edible and contain healthy fat, protein, and fibre. The seeds have been used to help prostate and urinary problems, and their high-fat, low carb content is great for heart health.

I topped my muffins with honey and bee pollen to give a little extra boost for the immune system. On their own, they’re amazing too and kid-approved! Check out beekeepersnaturals.com for their amazing product line!

Ready for the truth no one wants you to know?

There actually IS a secret tool to getting healthier.

Here’s another secret:
It DOESN’T involve giving up treats and wine forever.

In fact, the way I’ve been able to keep my family and I healthy for the last decade has been largely thanks to the 80/20 rule.

This week’s blog (link below) is ALL about moderation. The word you hear SO MUCH, but never really know how to practically include in your life.

Also on the blog, 15 DELICIOUS (and I mean actually delicious) vegetable recipes.

No, I’m not going to tell you to make a plain salad with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

Let’s talk about VEGGIES that are delicious and taste like our favourite comfort food.

When we start to rekindle our flame with veggies, we remember how good they can taste and how they make us FEEL.

What’s your favourite FUN way to include veggies in your diet?

I really enjoyed reading your blog on Veggies! I like the different ideas on how to incorporate more veggies. I love grilled veggies the best but also enjoy making casseroles with different veggies! I cant wait to try some of your new veggie recipes....even the butternut smoothie😬!

If you have some nagging symptoms, its possible that theyre related to the foods you eat!

And were not just talking digestive symptoms.

Even things like headaches, joint pain, or eczema can be related to food that youre sensitive to.

How would you find out if there is a food at the root of your issue?

Through an elimination diet!

Elimination diets are just that - eliminating certain foods. Then you reintroduce them back one at a time to see if you are sensitive to those foods.

It’s a strategic process that can be great… but also not so great.

In this weeks blog - link below - I share the pros and cons of elimination diets and my latest recipe - youll never know that it eliminates the most common allergens (because its so good).

Did you know that your morning coffee can be HARMFUL to your health based on your genetics?

Have you ever wanted to know what you should and shouldn’t eat, based on YOUR specific body?

Todays blog - link below - is ALL about the details of DNA testing AND how to get started.

It looks at your genes and how your diet interacts with them.

We can use nutrition to create PERSONALIZED diets to:

PREVENT certain conditions

Help you understand your INTOLERANCES

Know how your body REACTS to carbs, fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals

Build a nutrition plan for OPTIMAL health

 

🙋🏻‍♀️ I know I carry the CT variant of the GLUT2 gene.

This means I have a higher risk of sugar addiction which can lead to developing Type II Diabetes – but it doesn’t mean I WILL develop diabetes. 

 

Ive been able to ALTER and IMPROVE my diet with this knowledge to make sure I live a long and healthy life.

 

So, let’s get started figuring YOUR genetics and health out!

Have you tried genetic testing?
