Pumpkin is the must-have ingredient of the season! Not only is it delicious but it’s loaded with nutrients to promote optimal health throughout your body. I recently made this fun and easy recipe for Pumpkin Quinoa Pudding. Quinoa is rich in nutrients like iron, magnesium, and vitamin B2. It’s also a lot of fun to eat! Pair it with some pumpkin and spice….you have a winning dish! If you have a slow cooker at home, you must give this recipe a try.
Pumpkin Quinoa Pudding
- 1 cup quinoa (make sure you rinse it before you toss it into your slow cooker)
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (I used the kind from Trader Joes)
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
STEP 1: Add all ingredients to your slow cooker.
STEP 2: Give it all a good stir.
STEP 3: Set the heating to low and let it cook for about 5 hours.
STEP 4: Serve the pudding topped with berries, bananas, nuts, or dates!
What you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it. All to often, we forget to pay attention to the ingredients used in our soaps, moisturizers, and cleansers. Most conventional skin care products contain harsh chemicals, preservatives, and artificial fragrances. Since the skin absorbs whatever we put on it, all of those nasty ingredients go right into our body. No bueno! That’s why I recommend checking out ACURE Organics. They have a wide variety of body and skin care products to choose from and let me tell you…they are all fabulous. But today, I wanted to focus on two of my favorite products that I think you will love.
First of all, let’s talk about ACURE Organics Marula Oil. This wild-crafted South African oil is loaded with antioxidants to help reverse the signs of aging. It has a nice, lightweight formula that closely mimics the skins own sebum, which means it absorbs into the skin quickly, leaving it feeling hydrated and smooth. ACURE Organics Marula Oil is also wonderful for reducing redness, treating dry sensitive skin and maintaining a proper moisture balance. It also works well on sunburns, wound healing and scars, adding shine to hair and decreasing frizz/fly-a-ways, cuticle treatment, etc. How do you use it? You simply apply a small amount to your dry skin, ends of hair, dry cuticles, scars, or stretch marks. It’s that easy!
Next, let’s talk about the ACURE Organics Argan Oil Castile Soap. This is my latest obsession because you can use it for just about anything and everything! This extra-versatile liquid soap is comprised of the organic saponified oils of coconut, sunflower, castor, and argan. This blend of rich oils delivers a high concentration of polyunsaturated fats, which leave behind quite a bit of moisture. You can use the ACURE Organics Castile Soaps daily as a body wash, bubble bath, or even a shampoo. You can also use it to brush your teeth, do your laundry, clean the tub, bathe your dog, scrub the floors, and so much more. Best of all? It smells amazing and it doesn’t leave your hands feeling dry.
