Move over peaches, it’s pumpkin time! I’m thrilled it’s fall and always excited to make new recipes each season. I absolutely love pumpkin! It’s so yummy and satisfying as the weather gets cooler, and healthy too! Last week I found some new pumpkin recipes that I look forward to preparing. I just picked up my first pumpkin of the season this afternoon while strolling the Italian Market on 9th Street Philadelphia for $5.00.
Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Oat Scones, Spicy Pumpkin Fries, Pumpkin Jam, Pumpkin Chili, Pumpkin-Coconut Soup, and Pumpkin Crock Pot Oatmeal are all on my list. Someone sent me a pumpkin cookie recipe yesterday that I may add to the list too!

Philadelphia Magazine’s Be Well Philly published a list of outstanding Pumpkin recipe suggestions yesterday and I’ve added their Baked Pumpkin Pasta and Pumpkin Vinaigrette to my list of pumpkin recipes to try this fall. Their Healthy Pumpkin Pudding which calls for protein powder sounds quite interesting too. For more exciting pumpkin recipe ideas check out Be Well Philly’s “Peace Out Pumpkin Pie” Thanks for the great recipes Be Well Philly!

Saturday October 1, 2011 is the worldwide Yoga Aid Challenge. The challenge is a special opportunity for local yoga communities to come together and raise funds for charity. There is no charge too attend and participants fundraise for charity leading up to the event. It’s a 2 hour challenge lead by a series of yoga instructors from studios in the community areas.
Capital cities will feature some of the world’s most influential yogis: teachers include Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Baron Baptiste, Duncan Wong, Ana Forrest and MC Yogi, amongst many others.
I’m hoping to attend the Philadelphia Area Yoga Aid Challenge on Sunday, October 1 at Hot Box Yoga. I’ll be returning from international travels either the evening prior or the day of the event, so I’m crossing my fingers I return in time. If I make it back in time, I’ll be there! Either way, my thoughts will with everyone worldwide participating in Yoga Aid Challenge.
