Pumpkin Spice Latte

I  love pumpkin. I truly go crazy an eat all things sweet and savory that are pumpkin related during September, October, and November.

Starbucks is pretty boring on Whole30. You can get a few things on their menu but basically unsweet plain tea/coffee. Nothing fancy or fun. DEFINITELY no Pumpkin Spice Latte.

But let's be honest... I need my #PSL

So I decided to give my own Whole30 approved pumpkin spice latte a try.

- 1 can of unsweet full fat coconut milk
- 1/4 cup of pumpkin
- pumpkin pie spice (to your taste)
- extra cinnamon

Mix it all together and add to dark roast brewed coffee.

It works great for hot or iced lattes and seriously is the best.

Here are my meals the last two days. 

Day 2 breakfast 
Sweet potato buns with bacon and baked eggs 

Day 2 lunch 
Chipotle chili with roasted butternut squash, parsnips, and sweet potatoes topped with avocado. 

Day 2 Dinner 
Sauteed onion and aides chicken apple sausage with a side of cabbage 

Day 3 breakfast 
spinach eggs, bacon, and strawberries 

Day 3 lunch 
Sauteed mushrooms, snap peas, chicken breast, and cashews 

Day 3 dinner 
mashed potatoes topped with antelope roast cooked with beef broth carrots, parsnips, and tomatoes. Sort of like a shepherds pie bowl whole 30 style. 

I've been eating Whole30 most of the time since my first round in May so eating like this is not hard. The hard part is not cheating ....at all ...ever. Today I got my daughter a frosty from wendys and as I was feeding it to her I seriously al.most mindlessly took a bite about four times. Being conscious of everything you eat is why doing a real round of whole30 is important. I can eat whole30 90% of the time, but when I do it 100% of the time I become more focused and my cravings and mindless eating ends. 

Only three days down, but I know I got this!
