Not only is it that time of the year again–pumpkin spice everything!–but we’re really embracing it this year after a hot, hot summer. The temps may still be in the 90s here in Arizona, but we’re fully embracing fall, especially anything involving pumpkin, in a sweet effort to feel a little more seasonal. Enjoy these healthy pumpkin recipes below and you will start to see those leaves changing color–or cacti.
