Fall means different things to different people. Some of us love the crunch of leaves underfoot; some savor a crisp autumn breeze; some want nothing more than a mug full of hot liquid spiked with seasonal flavours.
But let's not kid ourselves: at this time of year, it's really all about the pumpkin. Maybe we're just pumpkin enablers, but if you ask us, there's nothing wrong with a seasonal pumpkin addiction. That's why we are sharing with you today our favourite pumpkin soup recipe for those chilly nights. We've used the word "pumpkin" six times now—wait, seven, after that last one—so we're sure you get the picture: this is the first and final destination for your pumpkin soup cravings. Alright, one last time, just for kicks: PUMPKIN. 🎃🎃🎃

Eating a balanced breakfast is an important way to get your day off to a good start. Which is why we believe in planning ahead when it comes to our brekkie.
But… we're not perfect. Sometimes we have every intention to prep chia pudding in the evening but end up being too tired to actually go through with this plan. Or we forget. Oops. 😬
While we're big advocates for meal prep breakfasts, we also believe you need quick and easy breakfasts that you can make in minutes in the morning.
That’s where this Yogurt Breakfast Bowl with a side of crunchy rice cakes come in. You can prep this delish meal in just minutes, using whatever you have on hand in your kitchen. These brekkie combo has a good balance of protein, carbohydrates and fiber when you add fruits, nuts and/or chia seeds.
