So far, we’re enjoying the fun that this Autumn Season brings us!
Apple Picking…our yearly tradition!
And some good apple eats…
(I replaced the butternut squash with acorn squash puree)
Sweet cinnamon creamy goodness!!!
But at least there were some good pumpkin eats…
I made these into mini muffins for an easy snack option and also subbed out the walnuts for raisins and pumpkin seeds. They’ve been quite a hit with the princesses and I love the fact that I can just pop these little guys out of the freezer for a healthy grab-and-go treat!
And while the fam has been feasting on these delicious goodies throughout the week, I’ve been having a little “feast” of my own…a JUICE feast that is!
Over the past couple of months my stomach aches have been more frequent and have gotten increasingly worse, so I did a little research on the benefits of juicing and decided to dust off my trusty juicer and have at it! First up was a trip to the local farmer’s market to stock up on fresh organic produce…there were beets, kale, spinach, parsley, mint, pears, cucumbers, carrots, lemons and limes, just to name a few.
And out of that, these delicious drinks were born…
Okay, SOME could definitely be called delicious, but a handful of others were, well, just not that appetizing.

Although my body definitely felt the nourishment from juicing, I unfortunately did not achieve the healing I was hoping and praying for. I get that it is a process, as it is with most changes we make in our lives, so I will continue on in my juicing journey and I trust that the Lord will heal me in time. Until then, I will be anxious to meet with a new doctor in a couple of weeks.
Nourishing Thought for Today:
in Luke 9:23 Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
“Taking up your cross” is a moment by moment process of yielding to Him. When we walk daily with the Lord and surrender our life to Him we can expect to encounter some pain, suffering and difficult times! I can definitely attest to that this week!
Are you willing to make that sacrifice?
