Recipe from The Healing Foods/Rodale Press

Posted in Books, Food, Health, Nutrition

All of life can’t be so strict that there is no time for silliness, fun and foods to enjoy.  Forever food has been a part of gathering with friends and family and just because you want to be healthy and trim doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some tasty treats.  I found this recipe in a healthy book and thought this would be the perfect time of year to give it a try.  Hope you enjoy it too.  Just  remember to a reasonable portion!

1 pound low-fat cottage cheese: 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt: 3/4 cup pumpkin puree; 1/4 cup flour; 3 eggs; 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; 1/4 cup maple syrup; 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1-8  inch prepared graham cracker crust (use real food ingredients) Makes 10 to 12 servings

Preheat oven to 325

Place cottage cheese, yogurt, pumpkin, flour, eggs, vanilla, maple syrup, and spice into a food processor while the motor is running (through the feed tube) Process until smooth (only add a little at a time), then pour the mixture into the crust, using a rubber spatula to spread evenly.

Place the pie in the middle of the oven and bake for about 50 minutes. Let cool before serving. Store in refrigerator.

Life is short, enjoy!

Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
