I can eat pumpkin pie all year really. I love it. As a little girl, I couldn’t stand the taste of it. Isn’t it funny how things can so drastically change as you get older? This pumpkin pie french toast recipe is really an excuse to eat pumpkin pie for breakfast…but almost better!
The trick is to start with cinnamon bread. I grabbed the soft bread with the cinnamon swirls that just happen to be on sale. Get a nice, soft brand that will soak up our pumpkin/egg mixture. It really makes a difference.
Here’s the video on making these. The recipe and instructions are below. Let me know how delicious they are!
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup milk of choice
1 TBS pumpkin pie spice
6-8 slices cinnamon swirl bread
Whisk together pumpkin, eggs, milk and pumpkin pie spice
Dip your bread slices in mixture and fully coat both sides
Don’t be afraid to let them soak in the mixture a bit to really get the flavor
Sprinkle soaked bread slices with a little more pumpkin pie spice and salt
Fry the slices on medium heat
Stack and drizzle with syrup and top with whipped cream. Super super yummy!
I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
Here is what one mama emailed me on the program:
“I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🏼!
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
