Hi friends, here are our best Halloween recovery ideas and a look back at our week!
So proud of these guys! We spent the morning helping convert an abandoned lot into a green space where the neighborhood can grow their own food. They looked like Mini-Strong Men moving all those stones! Love that they have the desire to help others, and enjoy being active (thanks to a Paleo lifestyle!).
These Paleo kids have really taken an interest in cooking, so much so that Cole andFinian are even developing their own recipes! How cool is that?! Cole is working on a cookbook, and Finian is coming up with a brownie recipe that we will try out this weekend. These guys just blow us away!
Don’t be fooled, that’s not a frosted muffin! No, even better: a leftover burger topped with Chosen Foods Mayo for breakfast! And once the healthy fats are in, a special treat of Rick-a-Roons (loving the Pumpkin Spice flavor – coupon code below!). Plus the usual herbal coffee and my new discovery (I think I’m a little late to the party on this one!) of La Croix sparkling water.
We’re a family of halloween-lovers, as you might have guessed by our 5 years of consecutive halloween round-up posts! This week we carved pumpkins, and have been putting the finishing touches on our family costume. Any guesses on our theme this year?! Hint: I will be rising!
Wait! Don’t Throw Those Pumpkins Out!
After Halloween, save those jack-o-lanterns that are in good conditions and bake them to incorporate into any of one of these TOP 10 PALEO PARENTS PUMPKIN RECIPES!
1. Pumpkin Butter
2. Tutorial Thursday: All Things Pumpkin
3. Pumpkin Bread Pudding
4. Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
5. Pumpkin Bacon Pancakes
6. Pumpkin Pucks
7. Pumpkin Cider Latte
8. Pumpkin Chili
9. Pumpkin Delights
10. Pumpkin Pudding
It is a total win-win when you can take your Halloween leftovers and reuse-and-recycle to create paleo recipes.

Halloween Recovery Foods
Our number one recovery food is Vital Proteins collagen. It’s something I use every day, and I can tell when I’ve missed it. It is THAT powerful! The kind with the green lid will ultimately gel and is perfect for making gelatin, ice cream, pudding, etc.; and the kind with the blue lid is easily dissolvable for stirring into drinks. More info on both types of gelatin, and recipes on how we incorporate them can be found in this blog post!
Sea vegetables are loaded with nutrients, and Sea Snax makes them great-tasting! Crispy and salty green vegetables are the best.
Get that good bacteria with your favorite fermented veggies, or my favorite form – kombucha! Our whole family loves GTs Enlightened Gingerberry.
Another winner from the water is sea food! Easily digestible protein and full of good vitamins and minerals, Safe Catch Tuna and Wild Planet Salmon are great foods for recovery (not to mention super easy and quick to prepare!).
