VEGGIE BEEF STEW: A Healthy Crockpot Comfort Food

Here in the Northeast we have Indian Summers every September. It's always so nice. I love everything about the Fall except the cold weather. So when Mother Nature gives us one last jolt of hot weather I make sure that I soak it all in. I relish it because I know in just a few short weeks, I'll be packing away all my summer clothes and getting all of my hoodies out while I whimper and bitch... for the next five months. Yes, I'll admit it. I'm one of those people who constantly complain about the cold weather. But I have to say, I'm not one of those people who complain about the weather for each season. I never complain about the heat. I love the heat! The hotter the better. I'm talking even those humid days that everyone hates. I love those days! I know I'm weird. But it can't be too hot or too humid for me. I always joke and say I'm meant to live on the Equator. When everyone else is actually melting into their very own skin puddle, I'm rejoicing! Omg I love it. I know I'm a mental case but I can't help it.

I actually wasn't always like this. It's just been since my weight loss journey. After I lost 120 pounds, I all of a sudden found ...

PUMPKIN PIE PUDDING

Today I am presenting to you an absolutely scrumptious Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding! Yes, I know I just posted a recipe for chia seed pudding a few weeks ago. But that was Vanilla Cinnamon Chia Pudding... this is very different! You wanna know why it's so different. I'll tell ya why.

BECAUSE PUMPKIN SPICE! That's why!

I look forward all year to when there's pumpkin spice everything! Oh hell yeah. Mama can't get enough. I know there's enough of you pumpkin freaks out there to feel me on this. My husband thinks I'm insane. He doesn't jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon in the Fall, or ever. He won't turn down a piece of pumpkin pie, I'll say that, but anything else? Nope. He's not a fan. I know, I don't understand it either. It's a huge flaw on an otherwise perfect husband. It's a good thing I love him so much and that he scores mostly A's in the spousal department. Because his big fat F minus with the No-Love-For-Pumpkin-Stuff could really eff up his GPA if he wasn't such a good hubby. 

So let me tell you why my pumpkin spice naysayer of a husband loves my newest chia seed recipe. It tastes like the one and only pumpkin food he loves!

PUMPKIN PIE, BITCHES!

Oh that's right. You heard me. This pudding is like eating the inside of a pumpkin pie. The best part? It's healthy! And I'm not talkin' a little bit healthy. I'm talkin' a whole lot healthy!
