The Foods of Fall!

Fall Food Favs

1 pound Laura’s Lean ground beef (I use the 4% fat)
1 can organic dark red kidney beans
1 can muir glen organic tomato sauce
1 can muir glen organic diced tomatoes
(I use Muir Glen because they use a BPA Free can liner, which is extremely important, especially when dealing with the tomato acidity)
¾ package of McCormick low sodium chili seasoning
½ tablespoon sugar or 2 NuNaturals stevia packet
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt (any salt will work, I personally prefer the Himalayan)
–Brown beef (throw in some diced red onion and bell peppers for added flavor and veggies!) and drain. Put in a medium sized pot on low-medium heat with all the other ingredients.
–Cook on low-medium heat for about 20 minutes, switch to low heat for about 30 minutes and serve!


Pumpkin Dip:
1 can of Libby’s pure pumpkin
1 tub of light cool whip (if you can find organic, buy that!)
1 small package vanilla instant pudding (use organic if possible)
Pumpkin pie spice to taste
–1 bowl….mix all ingredients together.
–Top with pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg to look pretty
–Serve with GF organic animal crackers or organic apples

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp: (I’m hoping to make this bad boy over the weekend!)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup regular oats
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
7 cups sliced peeled Rome apple (about 3 pounds)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375°.
Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, oats, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture is crumbly. Stir in walnuts.
Combine apple and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Spoon apple mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish or 1 1/2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with crumb mixture. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
