I ride out the pumpkin craze until after the New Year.

Okay, I rotate between pumpkin and peppermint, if I’m to be fully honest. I will have one more slice of pumpkin pie come Christmas, but I truly love my pumpkin savory. It’s great for you and tastes fantastic when you add the right herbs and spices to it.

No fat or calories were spared for Thanksgiving dinner and none will be spared for Christmas dinner either. But in between and more particularly, after the holidays, I will need to watch them just a wee bit closer. I like that I’ve gone down one pants size recently and I’d like to keep that downward progression.

When dinner rolls around, and I need to make something for just us versus the blog, I enjoying thumbing through a stack of my magazines for inspiration. And by stack I mean stacks. I think I am on a mission to single handedly try to save the glossies, but I digress. I was at my local Sam’s Club filling a prescription for my daughter when I picked up their Healthy Living Magazine and thumbed through it. I was really impressed with the leftover holiday meal ideas they had.

Being in-between holidays, I wanted to continue trying to eat a bit better. Pumpkin is still on my brain (and maybe, quite possibly because I had a bag of pita chips sitting in my cart), pumpkin hummus sounded like a tasty idea. I knew I could get everything I needed while at Sam’s Club.
