Pump Up with Pumpkin

Morning! I tried to do a run this morning, but yesterday’s double run left my knee a bit tired. I like to be super cautious about that, so I walked instead. I’m going to do some abs and arms after my dentist appointment and am formally announcing it so I’ll stick to it!

After my 3 mile walk I came home HUNGRY and decided a high volume breakfast was in order. Whenever I want to pump up my meal I add tons of veggies – in this case I added a cup o’ pumpkin to my honey yogurt. (I think pumpkin is technically a fruit, but has stats similar to a veggie.)IMG 0689 800x533 thumb Pump Up with Pumpkin

I paired the big yogurt bowl with a bagel.IMG 0699 800x533 thumb Pump Up with PumpkinEveryone keeps asking about the Trader Joe’s Mango Butter… Yes, it’s amazing. Yes, I eat it by the spoonful straight out of the jar. Yes, I realize that is doing me a disservice. IMG 0696 800x533 thumb Pump Up with Pumpkin

Remember my whole root canal debacle? Well, today I’m getting my permanent cap. I am soooo over the dentist. Wish me, my mouth and my wallet – good luck!

    Ahh! Root canals… I’ve had two. It was unpleasant but I will say this, I was once on a mission trip and chipped my tooth chewing BUBBLE TAPE. Due to the circumstances I had to get it pulled (after a month of antibiotics), and let me tell you, I would get 100 root canals before I let a dentist do that to me ever again LOL!

    After that, my fear of dentists was pretty much over.

    I am glad your at the end of that bridge :)

    Eating Mango Butter is probably better than eating Nutella by the spoonful out of the jar. That is most definitely doing me a disservice. Such is life.

      I used about 3/4-1/2 cup depending on what I’m making. It would be less than 1/2 a can of the 15oz ones (most of the time I buy the big cans though and roughing estimate the amount).
