Pumpkin Recipes: 3 Shockingly Good Post-Halloween Treats

The post-Halloween dilemma: What do you do with all that leftover pumpkin? Here’s 3 scarily good pumpkin recipes that are all treat and no trick!

With Halloween just around the corner you’re probably neck deep in pumpkin right about now. You’re hollowing out those massive orange vegetables and carving them into some scary lantern. But what are you supposed to do with all that leftover pumpkin? Throwing it away seems like a waste. But there’s only so much pumpkin soup that the average person can muster. So with that in mind, I’ve got 3 pumpkin recipes that breathe life into this potentially dead boring vegetable.

So when you think about cooking with pumpkin, what’s the first recipe you think of?

I guarantee 99% of you just said soup. And the other 1% are probably just lying. Because let’s be honest, eating pumpkin is rarely more than a once a year thing. So your repertoire of pumpkin recipes is probably pretty limited.

But that need not be the case. Because not all pumpkin recipes need to be bland and boring. And they can be macro friendly and tasty at the same time.

So, without further talk from me, let’s dive right in to this week’s recipes. Here’s what I’ve got for you:

  • Full Moon Pumpkin Soup – Yes. It’s still soup, but not as you know it.
  • Fish and Pumpkin Stew – Sounds a bit weird, but trust me, it works!
  • Pumpkin Protein Bars – How does a delicious protein snack sound to keep you going throughout the day?

Easy Chicken Recipes Recipes meal prep sunday 21

Quick and Easy Chicken Recipes

Chicken is a staple in meal plans for a reason. But it can all get a bit bland. Liven up your diet with these quick and easy chicken recipes.

Chicken is pretty much synonymous with fitness and bodybuilding. In fact, over the years, dry chicken and reheated broccoli are the first foods that spring to mind when you think ‘bodybuilding diets’. But in this week’s Meal Prep Sunday recipes, I’m going to show you that it doesn’t have to be that way. Because with a few quick and easy chicken recipes you can breathe new life into that bodybuilding staple.

Over the years, I’ve eaten my way through a fair amount of chicken breasts. And I’m sure you have too. Not only is it high in protein, but it’s also low in fat, making it the ideal food for hitting those macros on a regular basis.

It doesn’t carry the tag along fat of meats like beef and lamb, making it a good source of protein you can have pretty much everyday.

But, herein lies the problem. Eating chicken day in and day out can get pretty dull. And meal prep can be a bit of a pain. So the ideal scenario you’re looking for is a dish that is tasty, but doesn’t take hours to make.

Well, today you’re in luck. Because these quick and easy chicken recipes can be cooked in under 15 minutes.

Oh. And they’re damn delicious too. So let’s dive right in.
