Super Stuffed Peppers {Almost Vegan, Perfectly Delish}

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (4)

When life gets insane in the membrane, meals that are simple to put together and extra nourishing really make everything that much better.

I’m not going to lie, the last few weeks have been challenging for me. I’m adjusting to a new work schedule and I think I’ve spread myself pretty thin (just picture this: I work three jobs- not complaining, I love what I do- I’m planning a wedding that’s 2 months away, I still need to have the time to eat, sleep, cook, get mani pedis and enjoy summer).

Tangy watermelon salad (4)

It amazes me how fall has become a pumpkin crazed season. I mean I’ve seen pumpkin flavored everything…butter, biscuits, bread, cookies. You name it, it probably exists and it’s probably some fake crap that is loaded with additives and chemicals. My favorite pumpkin flavored goodie (aside from my granola) has to be the pumpkin spice latte. But of course, these big coffee peeps have taken it  upon themselves to create fake pumpkin lattes with a ton of sugar that keep us addicted and going back for more.

Save your pennies friends and make this delicious concoction with ease knowing you are actually having a real pumpkin spice latte that’s almost too good to be good for you. But trust me, it is.
