Comfort Foods for Fall
It’s that time of year again in Seattle. Temperatures are dropping and its dark by 5 p.m. It’s no wonder we are turning to our favorite comfort foods to warm us up!
Here are the everyday seasonal foods we’re enjoying the most right now:
On a cold, drizzly morning is there anything better than hot coffee and a delicious donut? Our favorite are the fresh organic donuts from Mighty-O
! We’re especially loving their Pumpkin Spice variety this month. If you’re looking for a fresh donut on your way to work or as a weekend treat, Mighty-O’s new Capitol Hill location is now open!
With all the seasonal treats flying around we try to keep our health in check by making sure to have a salad for lunch. Thanks to organicgirl
we’ve mastered the art of making a super-fast, healthy and delicious salad. Our current favorite? Their spicy PEPPERGREENS (the cress and mustard’s heat warms us up) with creamy White Cheddar dressing. Most days we simply shake the dressing up in the clamshell and devour the whole thing!
After a late night at the office, we’re so grateful for Beecher’s
homemade Mac ‘n’ Cheese or Kale and Brown Rice Gratin—delicious, no-fuss and our kids eat them up, kale and all. Plus, after a sweet organic breakfast and healthy green lunch, we need a savory dinner to keep us balanced :)
While we love a pre-made meal that we can pop in the oven, nothing beats the taste and quality of a home cooked dinner. For a seasonal (and healthier) version of mac n’ cheese try adding in pumpkin! Here are our favorite recipes:
An easy vegan pumpkin mac n’ cheeze
from Oh She Glows
And baked pumpkin mac n’ cheese with PEPPERGREENS
from A Spoonful of Flavor
