Can I just say how hard it was to keep this in the fridge an entire day and a half so I could take a picture of it?! If you love pumpkin, you will LOVE this! I’ll be honest, my son doesn’t like almond butter, or any nut butter for that matter, but he really liked this one and said it reminds him of pumpkin pie. Plus, I was finally able to make nut butter in my Vitamix which was pretty cool, it was much easier than I thought it would be. Just a note: if you do not have a Vitamix, no worries, you can use a food processor.
I wanted to mention as well, in light of the upcoming holiday season, I am going to run a health and fitness group starting November 1st to help you with your goals! Between Halloween and Thanksgiving is the perfect time, because we have 25 Days to really get a routine down. You will get eight 30 minute at-home workouts, a workout schedule, nutrition guide, food lists, meal plans, portion control containers, an insulated tote to take your meals to-go if you need to, plus support and accountability in my private group. In addition to that, you also get 30 Days of Shakeology. I actually made my Vegan Chocolate Shakeology with a Tbsp of this Pumpkin Almond Butter today, it was fantastic! Shakeology is not another protein shake, it is not another low-end product by some pyramid scheme, it is a real food (no junk!) product that delivers nothing but good health and results. We believe this 100% and that is why we have a no-risk 30 day money back guarantee.
I have been drinking Shakeology for 2 years now, and I cannot tell you how many amazing things this packed nutrition shake has done for me. From weight loss to lower blood sugar and cholesterol, no more headaches, no more bloating…and the list goes on. I have had several clients also enjoy the Maca Root affects, this is just one of the 70 SuperFoods in Shakeology! Maca root is a medicinal plant that has been cultivated by Peruvians for the last 3,000 years. The amazing thing about Maca is that it is an adaptogen; meaning that it adapts to the needs of your body. Some of the Maca Root benefits are: It is a natural Aphrodisiac, it promotes hormone and mood balance, fertility, rich in vitamins and minerals, energy boosting, stress relief and clear skin, to name a few. I have 2 clients in particular that thank Shakeology and my Paleo plans for their ability to finally get pregnant…that is beyond words to me! It is so amazing so many people have been able to heal their bodies so much to the point they can extend their families!
So now that you know some of the details about what is going on November 1st, I would love to answer any questions you may have! You can email me at Nicole@FoodIMakeMySoldier.com or you can send me a private message on Facebook, or on my Personal Facebook!
If you would like to add yourself to the event, I can contact you instead. This is the Event Link.
I hope I can help some of you get on track this holiday season! I do run a group every month, so if you cannot make the November 1st group, there will be another one in between Thanksgiving and Christmas!
I hope you enjoy the recipe! As always, if you make it, don’t forget to leave a comment, or tag me/hash tag me on Instagram!
