Paleo Pumpkin Pie!
Time to arm yourself with the tools to have an enjoyable and healthy holiday season! Be ready to forage at parties, family gatherings and on the road. Look for clean protein sources and veggies - stay away from sweets, sauces and other junk - these foods have unknown origins and can derail your progress for weight loss or athletic performance. Stay on a good sleep schedule and drink plenty of water if you are doing any kind of air travel. The upcoming Friday posts will be dedicated to holiday foods...the first is my recipe for Paleo Pumpkin Pie - an easy dessert that is delicious and nutritious...next week, no more green bean casserole!

Paleo Pumpkin Pie:
1 1/2 C. pecans, slightly toasted and chopped finely - this will be the crust...
2 C. 100% pumpkin
1/2 C. coconut milk (full fat)
1/4 C. raw honey (watch the honey intake if you are still trying to lean out...)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1-2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 TBSP. coconut oil or butter
Melt the coconut oil or butter and mix into the chopped pecans. Press this mixture into a pie dish for the crust. Mix all other ingredients together thoroughly in a bowl. Pour over pecan crust. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour or until the pie mixture is firm. Whip some coconut milk and freeze it slightly as an alternative topping to ice cream or whipped cream.
