Tried this tonight with some fun, curly pasta I found in the cupboard. I made some adjustments per the first commenter (copy/pasted below). Delicious!
A few additions added a LOT of flavor to this recipe: 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 - 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger, 1 tsp+ each of cayenne pepper and chili powder to replace the chili sauce, and chunky peanut butter for crunch. I also used fat-free half-and-half to replace the cream (milk works well, too)

Here’s an ingenious way to make sure you eat salad everyday: Make jars of salad on Sunday night that you can just grab to bring to work. If you layer the ingredients correctly, the salad stays fresh for up to four days.

Pumpkin smoothie recipe

Last night I made pumpkin donuts. I ate one, but I knew I’d crave more.

So to sate my craving, I improvised a smoothie this morning that was absolutely delightful, and has kept me full and energized through my workout AND the few hours afterward.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 can of coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup frozen mango
  • 1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • Dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice (to taste)
  • Drizzle of agave syrup

Directions:

  1. Throw all ingredients in a blender and blend. If mixture is too chunky or if blender has trouble working through it all, add a bit more liquid until the mixture is thick but smooth and blends easily. Makes 1 large or 2 small servings.
