Breakfast

All About The Seasons

Good morning!

Again, it looks like it should be cool, crisp weather outside…..but it’s still very humid and hot! Sad, sad, sad….one thing I loved about living in such places as North Carolina and Alabama was that the leaves would change colors when school started. I miss that here!

However, I did prepare another fall-ish breakfast!

I’ve always just put straight pumpkin in my oats, never trying actual pumpkin pie mix before. Wow, this stuff was YUMMY! Yeah, it had a bit of cane sugar in it (as well as lots of spices!), but was totally worth it. A lot of times I find regular pumpkin to have a funny taste when there’s no sweetener involved…..this, on the other hand, tasted like pure pumpkin pie in a can. Perfection! I mixed 1/4 cup of it in with my oat bran and topped it with blueberries and raw almond butter. Delicious!

I have a few freelance deadlines that I have to work on this morning, as well as running a some errands with my mom. We are donating a TON of books to my brother’s high school library so we have to head over there this morning and make a big drop off. I love seeing those kids sweet faces and saying hi to my brother’s teachers—it always puts a smile on my face.

***

So, I’ve had a few emails and comments asking about The Way (my Wednesday night bible study). Here’s the lowdown. We are using a book called “Prayer” by Sarah Arthur. Its totally easy to understand because its written for young adults. πŸ™‚ Basically what we do is one person will volunteer to lead the study for the week and we will go through a chapter in the book. The leader will discuss the key elements of the chapter and we all will discuss points in it and how it is relevant to our own lives. We don’t really use the bible…it’s more of a discussion thing. For the final 30 minutes, we will go around in a circle and each say our “highs and lows” for the past two weeks and then we will close in prayer. Its a little different than past studies I have done because we don’t analyze parts of the bible or even have set questions. We might refer to the bible a couple times, but focus more on deep discussion of prayer in our own lives and how we can take our prayer life to the next level. If you have more questions, please email me and I’ll gladly share more!

    My absolute favorite fall/winter veggie is: PUMPKIN!!! I try to wait until the end of september or the beginning of October because once I start with the pumpkin business.. it DOESN’T stop!!! Pumpkin EVERYTHING- Pumpkin spiced latte’s, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin scones, pumpkin pie… ok so I guess I really enjoy it OUT of it’s healthy vegetable form! Girls gotta splurge sometime though, right! Also, I really really like zucchini, not sure if that is categorized as fall/winter though!!

    Hands down, 100% pumpkin and cinnamon. I use cinnamon year-round on EVERYTHING, and pumpkin makes its appearances here and there when I randomly crave my specialty stovetop Pumpkin Latte (yep, even in the middle of summer when it’s over 100 degrees outside…). When September 1st rolls around, though, I go full force into “AUTUMN MODE” and practically eat pumpkin for every meal. Okay, maybe that’s a little exaggerated, but I’m OBSESSED with Fall and Winter (!!!!) and I’m not ashamed πŸ™‚

    Hi, Jenna, thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest!

    I have to say that my new favorite Fall food is a sweet squash I’m trying to grow this year for the first time: delicata. Its like a mix between a sweet potato/acorn squash??? None of mine are actually finished growing yet, but I was able to get one at the Farmer’s Market last year and just knew I wanted to try growing it myself (we’ll see, this was really my first garden growing experiment and the summer squashes were radiant all season, so hopefully my delicata squash, sweet dumpling squashes, and spaghetti squashes will all work out as well).

    Peace

    Jenna-

    The bible study sounds incredible! We are kicking up a new prayer group at the middle of the month called ACTS. I’m looking forward to sitting down with all the women at my church.

    I have to say, I’m loving that you are doing such a big donation to your brother’s school. Not only are you helping so many others, the memory of your brother doesn’t disappear either. Have you contemplated a non-profit in his honor? (Maybe that is one of those q’s I should ask via email!!)

    I hope your foot is healing well. I’m still struggling with a broken toe and have felt so lethargic the last month not being near as active as I normally am. If only I didn’t need my toe for balance, I might be good again.

    Fall is such an amazing time. Wyoming’s fall is so short, but breath-taking. The leaves in the mountains quickly change colors and begin to fall towards the ground, crisp air greets each morning and the sunsets reflect all the amazing colors life has to offer. This season is by far my favorite time.

    We live close to one of the greatest areas for corn fields. The fun with that during fall are all of the corn mazes. We can drive twenty minutes and have our choice of which maze to venture through – and right along side of that, we can pick our holiday pumpkins right off the vine. There’s nothing more fabulous than fresh – and I do mean fresh pumpkin for pie, muffins and cookies too! Pumpkin is my favorite too!

    Lords Blessings!

    Turnips/rutabagas. I HATED them as a kid, my dad used to tell me they were “new potatoes” to try to get me to eat them. I suppose its a sign of age now that I love something I hated as a child. Roasted with some olive oil or mashed with a hint of brown sugar – yum yum.

    Sweet potatoes! I love this time of year (er, well when it feels more like fall here in Florida) because I like to make this easy dish, which is SO fall, without being heavy:
    – sweet potatoes
    – carrots
    (find your preferred proportions, start with equal parts, maybe more heavy on the sweet potatoes)
    – dash of lemon
    – (experiment with cinnamon or other spices if you like!)

    — boil until skins come off easily, and remove skins from all vegetables (be careful, veggies are HOT!)
    — put all veggies in a big mixing bowl and mash them up together
    — when you have an even consistency and blend, add the lemon to taste, and whatever other flavorings you like (it’s really good with just the lemon though)

    Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    Butternut squash. Sweet, yet savory squashβ€”roasted or blended into a soup is a happy way to greet fall. Paired with spelt flour, applesauce and cinnamon, butternut squash is delicious in muffins and breads for a healthy kick! So, whether it’s a sweet tooth or a savory one, butternut squash can cure them all in so many different ways. Squash alone is divine, but my favorite is a gathering of all the vegetables from the fall farmer’s market: asparagus, squashes of all kinds, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, broccoli, onionsβ€”sprinkled with olive oil & roasted ’til nice and crispy….aaaahhhhh, healthy goodness!

    Butternut squash for sure! I like to slice it thinly with a little butter and salt, then roast in the over for 30 minutes.

    I saw this book in Barnes & Nobel the other day and was so tempted to buy it! Better to save the cash, though, I told myself…A hard decision to make!

    Brussels sprouts – I never thought I’d say that, but since moving to the UK I love them, either in a stir fry, soup or roasted with salt, pepper and olive oil. I can’t imagine a Christmas without them now either! Pumpkin is runner up. πŸ™‚

    Oh gosh, I can’t just name 1 favourite fall veggie….I would have to say pretty much all root veggies are my favourites, but I guess one of the most interesting one that I love especially would be PARSNIPS! They are ssoo delicious and versatile: mix them w/ butternut squash and sweet potatoes and roast…or you can whip them til they’re fluffy, yet smooth, kind of like mashed potatoes, but soo much more flavourful.

    I have to go with sweet potatoes as well. I eat these year round, but once fall hits I find myself craving sweet potatoes more than ever! I love to chop them up and bake them alongside chicken and apples or just wrap in foil and make a giant baked potato for dinner. And of course it’s not Thanksgiving without sweet potato casserole and sweet potato pie. Just typing it makes me hungry :).

    I have to say…BRUSSEL SPROUTS! Although they’re available year round, they peak in the Fall, and there’s something so unique and comforting about a bowl of steamed brussel sprouts, with a little seasoning and a drop of butter, on a cool, Fall day! Nothing says Fall like it!

    I definitely would say pumpkin, but that is clearly not going to be original here with all of us healthy eaters! So instead, I’m going with asparagus, and YES I know that is sooo not a fall/winter veggie, but with flash freezing and everything now, you can get good frozen asparagus year round. I LOVE it! I don’t love the.. um, after effects.. (haha!) but asparagus is so gooood it’s worth overlooking! πŸ˜‰

    I love leeks! You can do so much with them – make a creamy potato leek soup with grated cheese and chives on top; saute and add them to pasta (really good with pesto sauce); throw them in a stir-fry. You can even chop them up and eat them raw on top of a salad. They add so much flavor and are low in calories, relatively cheap, and easy to work with. Plus, something about using them makes me feel like I’m a gourmet chef!

    My favorite fall/winter veggie is spicy v-8 juice. I know that isn’t a normal one but canned veggies were plunked in front of me as a kid (always french cut string beans!) and I just never warmed up to making better ones when I grew up. My idea of cooking involves something from the frozen food aisle and a microwave.

    I’m thinking I’d like to try one of those spaggetti squash things but I honestly don’t know where to start. As a kid I liked pumpkins but really for the carving. I really got to make a couple of veggie friends.

    I honestly get near 100 percent of my veggie intake off v-8 (and veggie burgers if you count them)

    so I’m glad to bump into your site. Maybe I can ease myself into more dynamic food choices that are healthy as I try to become more fit… 20 pounds gone so far!

    (Yeah put this in the wrong post first- 1st time commenter) I was super excited to see that you have β€œFall” posts. I recently moved from WI to Tampa and my body is sensing/craving the fall season but it’s crazy that its 90 outside! My absolute favorite fall veggie is pumpkin, I actually get bummed out when they are not in season and I’m forced to use canned. However, I do have my go to recipe that I wanted to share because it brings me back to the change of seasons and it’s a mix of gingerbread and pumpkin- what else is better?
    Pumpkin Pecan Chocolate Chip Gingerbread (Inspired by Post Punk Kitchen)
    Ingredients
    1 cup chopped pecans
    3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups packed dark brown sugar
    2/3 cup white sugar
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoons ground ginger
    2 cups pumpkin puree
    1 cup vegetable oil
    2/3 cup coconut milk
    2/3 cup flaked coconut
    1 cup miniature chocolate chips
    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8? x 4? loaf pans.
    2. Spread pecans in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Toast in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
    3. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. Add the pumpkin puree, oil, and coconut milk, and mix until all of the flour is absorbed. Fold in the flaked coconut, chocolate chips, and toasted pecans. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
    4. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    I love love love acorn squash. I could actually eat it anytime of year, but it is definitely missed if not at the Thanksgiving dinner. Plus my mom makes it the best as all moms do. 20 minutes in the microwave in 1 inch of water in a dish and then baked 20 minutes in the oven. Yum!

    I have to say any form of squash, or my fav recipe to make is stuffed peppers, so Red peppers as well! πŸ™‚

    Butternut squash for sure! I’ve loved it since I was a little kid – my aunts & uncles thought I was a weird kid since it was about all I would eat at holiday meals. My cousins of about the same age wouldn’t touch it.

    Butternut squash…or maybe sweet potatoes….both are interchangeable for me! I like them mashed, roasted, baked, and sometimes just plain raw! Yum! I can’t wait until Thanksgiving!

    Like everyone else, I’m going to have to say pumpkin… but not from a can! When I was living in New Zealand, I used to buy a lot of pumpkin… sliced straight from the gourd… and roast or steam it. So delicious!

    I’d have to say my favorite fall veggie is either pumpkin or sweet potatoes – they are both so incredible that it’s hard to decide which I like better! πŸ™‚

    Jenna,
    Thank you for all your inspiration! You are an amazing person! I love reading your blog! Perhaps I cannot identify with what you are going through in life, but you always say something that helps me through my day, week, month! I think am so connected to your blog because of what happened to your brother….how strong you are and how you continue to be strong. I still have my 2 siblings, but I will never take them for granted again! Thank you for being such a role model and someone to look up to when times can be difficult! You are the person you inspires many!!

    I love almost every fall/winter veggie… they all taste so great! My top picks would have to be sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and pumpkin (especially when I roast the seeds!), but my absolute favorite is acorn squash! It has such a great taste that I just can’t get enough of!

    It is a toss up between pumpkin and sweet potatoes – you can’t go wrong with either AND pumpkin spice lattes are the best. I noticed you went to Elon and then CofC -I went to Elon, and my sister went to CofC – two great southern schools!
