My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Pumpkin Yogurt Dip

As you head into the holidays, whip up healthy snacks with seasonal flavors, like Pumpkin Yogurt Dip. This is a delicious snack for kids or adults, and it satisfies a sweet craving without the overindulgence that is all-too-common during the holidays. The quick recipe below allows you to make as much as you need to serve just yourself or a whole group, so just add some sliced apples (or other seasonal fruit) and enjoy!

The Nutrition Rundown: Protein from Greek yogurt and fiber from pumpkin and apples will keep you full until your next meal.
