RECIPE TIME: It's a Pumpkin Party!

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! It's finally pumpkin season and there are many reasons to celebrate! I have to admit that I'm a little obsessed with this delicious squash!

Not only is pumpkin incredibly versatile (delicious in both savory AND sweet recipes) and easy to use (many canned and organic canned versions are available), but it also packs a healthy punch like keeping heart health, vision and waistlines in check (as long as you take it easy with the added sugar that usually accompanies it).

That's where I come in! Time for you to benefit from my pumpkin obsession! I've compiled a list of my favorite pumpkin treats that cut the sugar and fat into oblivion. All of these simple recipes are made with real ingredients and contain no processed ingredients. I bet you'll never guess that they're all sugar-free too!

By day, Sara Warner is the Marketing Director for the Campus Recreation Center at Georgia Tech, but by night, she’s the voice behind the blog Pidge’s Pantry, a resource for those trying to eat healthier by implementing a 100% whole wheat and low/no sugar diet. A graduate of the University of Georgia with a double major in Broadcast News and Art History, Sara confesses that she dreams of going back to school to get her Masters and PhD so that she can become an Art History professor! In addition to her love for art, Sara finds pleasure in weekend trips to the farmer’s market and cooking for her family in the kitchen. She confesses that her favorite foods are chocolate and peanut butter, so you can be sure she features both on her blog!
