WIAW: A Crap Load of Pumpkin

It's been a long while since I did a WIAW and I'm glad to be hopping back into it.
Thanks Jenn for putting this fun party together!
This theme is definitely appropriate considering the amount of pumpkin I've been eating!
The food is mostly from Monday and Tuesday
 Post workout/Breakfast (Mon.): Chocolate almond milk protein shake
I got to use my new shaker bottle which made the protein shake so much smoother!
My protein shake kept me full until lunchtime
Lunch (Mon.): Greek yogurt w/ honey, vanilla, blueberries, and granola
Eaten in my car while I waited for my next class to start
My polisci class had this town hall debate that had a refreshment table full of cookies, but I resisted
Snack (Mon.) unpictured Annie's Cheddar Bunnies
Snack (Mon.): ripe juicy plum
Michael came over to watch the Bears vs. Lions & SF Giants games so I made us a healthy dinner
Dinner (Mon.): whole wheat pasta w/ garlic olive oil, veggies, & parm cheese. Spinach salad w/ raspberry vinaigrette
 Dessert (Mon.): Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse
I'd been wanting to make this recipe for awhile and it was delicious! Make it now!

I promise Tuesday has less pictures!
Breakfast (Tues.): Healthy Pumpkin Bread
This was so moist and delicious!
 Lunch (Tues): Vanilla chai tea w/ almond milk & Truvia. 2 baked sweet potatoes with butter & salt
Snack (Tues.): 2% cottage cheese w/ blueberries. 2 slices of pumpkin bread--It's addicting!!
Dinner (Tues.): I didn't manage to get a picture of dinner, but I had Portobello pizzas, steamed artichokes, and 1/2 a twice baked potato. My stomach is crazy stuffed!

Phew! Done! Now I'm off to lie down in a food coma from dinner!

    1. Same here! I've been experimenting with regular recipes and switching out healthier ingredients

  5. That is a lot of pumpkin. But it's totally excusable for fall. Actually, I eat pumpkin year round so I have no room to make judgement calls anyway :D That pumpkin bread looks especially good- May have to check out the recipe...
