I finally feel like it’s time to join the pumpkin band wagon!


I am a bit unusual when jumping on to trends. Like how the end of August everyone was already posting their pumpkin spiced _____ fill in the blank and I am over here like…I’m still eating my Crispy Coconut Chicken.

Like the Twilight book craze (the books NOT the movies…yuck), I watched people on campus practically drooling over this “Edward” and I would roll my eyes and drift back into the text book I was reading for class that day.

But usually after the hype is over, I will attempt to get on board. Like how I read through 3 of the Twilight books in like a week and was in agony for a week waiting for the last one to come out!


Same goes for pumpkin. I didn’t want to share pumpkin recipes until later on. It’s November and that means it’s officially PUMPKIN season!

And man, get ready for this blog’s second wind for pumpkin. Cause I have a LOT.

And I have actually been so so excited to share this recipe with you! It has actually been shared on the Whole30 website last year and I reshot it for the blog!


Pumpkin Turkey Chili is so simple and delicious. It’s basically fall in a bowl.

Beyond, the amazing savory pumpkin flavor. This chili is delicious. It is also a very healthy protein packed meal. And I am ALL about that!

This chili just simmers in your crock pot all day long and makes your house smell amazing. It is a very savory and almost creamy chili with a sage flavor that brings it all together.

Serve it with a piece of bread or my personal favorite; ladled over a potato.
