Pumpkin Pie Spiced Ricotta Breakfast

edit img

Pumpkin Pie Breakfast! This yummy breakfast tastes like the middle of a pumpkin pie, yet it is deceptively healthy and loaded with protein. The secret weapon here is the Pumpkin Pie Spice, grab several jars during the fall and use it year round (it's hard to find the rest of the year). This creamy mash tastes like the inside of a whipped pumpkin pie. Butternut squash is super healthy, and a great alternative to pumpkin, you could sub canned or fresh mashed pumpkin (when selecting canned pumpkin choose canned "pumpkin," not pumpkin pie filling).

Ingredients:

  • 4 -6 oz Skim Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 Package MRC Vanilla Creme Pudding
  • 1/3 cup butternut squash, cooked and mashed
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

Blend well and enjoy

Replaces: 1 protein serving, 1 carb serving, 1 MRC creamy protein supplement. Note: the butternut squash and almond milk combine to equal one carbohydrate serving.

Canned pumpkin, up to 50 calories per serving, is an option as a starch serving on your MRC menu. Pumpkin is considered a winter squash. Read the label on the can to ensure the only ingredient is pumpkin (in some cases it might say squash). Avoid any varieties with added sugar.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
