#WIAW - Festive Fall Recipes

Happy WIAW Friends!

So this time of year is always a dangerous for me diet-wise. Since my Marathon I have been in a self-imposed rest/slacker mode. I know my body needs a break. But with no upcoming races I have been eating chicken wings and drinking wine like it is my part-time job. And my lower mileage does not exactly justify my tastebud's desire to eat loads of carbs at every meal.

Plus November and December equate to Birthday-Extravaganza and Holiday Overload around here. We have a birthday almost every weekend (**including my own - EEP!**) leading up to the Christmas Season. And the next few months are filled with lots of celebratory meals, bottles of wine, and dessert (re: lots of dessert).

But this year I want to do things differently. My tummy troubles mean that I still need to be mindful of my meals. And keeping my body healthy and happy throughout the holidays is still priority number one. But a girl still needs to have some yummy options to keep her sanity. So I want to focus on eating festive, healthy, tummy friendly meals. Which is why Pumpkin, Squash, and Parsnip reign supreme!

These are my top 3 Festive Tummy-Approved Fall Meals...

Vegan Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spiced Muffins

Savory Squash and Corn Soup
Vegan Gluten-Free Parsnip Stuffing
Hope you guys enjoy!
