Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix

Pumpkin-Pie-Spice-Trail-Mix-SnackI love all things related to fall; pumpkins, costumes, holiday meals, decor, crafts, but my absolute favorite thing is anything pumpkin spice! Let’s face it, it’s now in pretty much everything, right?

Lately, I’ve been needing a bit more of an energy boosting snack more so during this pregnancy to help me keep up with our very active 4-year-old. Since the weather in Southern California has finally started to cool down, I was craving something pumpkin-ish so I made this pumpkin pie spice trail mix. All it takes is 10 minutes and 6 ingredients. Yes, it has more sugar than I need (Reese’s Pieces are my fav!), but sometimes it’s just about portion control and balancing meals. Plus, I promise I made up for it during dinner with a lean protein and veggie meal.

    I love this! We always need snacks for football season & I especially love taking trail mix with me when I’m hiking. I never thought of making it with Pumpkin Pie flavor. Shared. Love, Lisa

  • True story, I had 3 jobs while in college. One of them was a Lancôme consultant. ☺️And I'm still a huge fan 17 years later. Ok, I just might have given away my age with that one. 🙈😆

Currently loving their entire new Visionnaire line (including the Crescendo Peel) as well as their Monsieur Big mascara, Bienfait UV facial sunscreen, Bi-facil eye makeup remover and the prettiest red matte shaker lippie. 💋💄Do you have any Lancôme favorites? .

  • Trying to take photos and video of these kiddos with my phone has caused quite a few of my screens to break. I'm sure many of you might be on the same boat. But we found a pretty neat phone case that has helped prevent drops especially at the park when I'm running around chasing two. 😆😅

  • [ad] I'm all about finding new ways to live a healthier lifestyle. Because in all honesty, the struggle. 🙈So today I'm talking about something I started to incorporate into my morning routine that's been a real game changer. Probiotics. .

Did you know probiotics are “good” bacteria that naturally exist in cultured or fermented foods (like yogurt) and offer benefits to your digestive system? They crowd out unwanted organisms and allow more of the “good” bacteria. But unlike most single strain probiotics, Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotics delivers the “good” bacteria your body needs in both the small and large intestines – giving you more comprehensive digestive coverage. Plus, they deliver more digestive tract coverage than most other single strain products. And if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the Nature Made Advanced Dual Action probiotics, just send it back for a full refund. P.S. We found ours @Walmart ;)
