Do yo love pumpkin? I love fall and #EverythingPumpkin, For the next 5-6 weeks I’m going to be giving you some awesome pumpkin recipes, from cakes, to shakes, to a pumpkin latte’, and more. I love fall here in Massachusetts, the leaves turning, and all the smells from the oven, of baking tasty treats, to roasting the turkey.
I have a great healthy pumpkin loaf recipe below compliments of Jill Coleman, I love this recipe. I have a few of my own pumpkin recipes I’m going to share with you, and a couple from another source that have awesome ones as well.
Would you like the pumpkin Latte’ one next? let me know on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/crystal.pecora
I would love to hear from you.
pumpkin is actually really good for you, I make pumpkin shakes often and will share that recipe and some new ones with you.
Pumpkin keeps you fuller with all its fiber, boosts vision, can lower blood pressure, healthier heart, better sleep, etc…
I will be making an ebook or pdf with all the recipes in it, and extra ones, and sharing to my free email newsletter list in November, you can get on my list below.

Healthy Pumpkin Loaf
