Get Spooky With It

Happy Spooky Season!

The leaves crunch beneath the steps of my sneakers and fall into my hair as it blows in the bustling breeze. Autumn is here, and Halloweekend is just a few days away. My outfits fill a drawer in my dresser, hidden behind the curtain of a dark wood. A flame burns in front of my as I type away, paper after paper, for my classes. My room leaks out pumpkin smells and I sip apple cider from the local juice shop. The weekends prior have been filled with costume shopping, hikes, and haunted houses. Now it’s time to really start celebrating before the leaves give up on falling and tired of changing, and the spirits mix with us for a quick moment of our lives.

Try out one of these yummy (vegan) autumnal recipes:

  • Oatmeal
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Pumpkin Nog:
    • Juice of one small “pie” pumpkin
      1/3 C filtered water
      1/4 tsp ginger
      1/4 tsp cinnamon
      1 tsp local raw honey
    • Juice the pumpkin in your juicer (save the pulp and seeds to use in some of the other recipes). Pour fresh juice into a blender. Add spices, honey, and blend. Dilute to taste with water. Chill or serve immediately.
