Pumpkin for Breakfast?

I'm always looking for simple ways to incorporate the healthiest choices possible when I'm in the kitchen.  One of the things that I find helpful is to have breakfast on autopilot which means I'm not reinventing the wheel every morning.  Usually I'm having yogurt with fruit and granola or oatmeal with apples and raisins. I toss walnuts and flax seeds on both because they are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and it's hard for most of us to get all we need from fish. But here's a holiday twist. I love pumpkin and this time of year I sometimes have some leftover from a holiday recipe. So how about pumpkin yogurt?

Here's an article about the health benefits of pumpkin. 

Don't make that face. You haven't tried it yet. Start by heating your leftover pumpkin in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.




 Choose the things you want to add. I added; raisins, granola, walnuts.







Stir...it's complicated, I know.






Top with plain yogurt and fresh grated nutmeg.

Start your day feeling good about your healthy breakfast!
