I have to apologize, as I’m a little late to the blogging party. The net-wide celebration of Nicole Morrissey’s cookbook, Prevention RD’s Everyday Healthy Cooking: 100 Light and Delicious Recipes to Promote Energy, Weight Loss, and Well-Being,
took off last month, and while I had every intention of posting along with the others, life threw a wrench into my daily grind.

However, I’m here now and I’ve got a giveaway just for you (see below). My adorable friend and registered dietician, Nicole, has been offering smart, sustainable solutions to healthy weight loss since the introduction of her popular blog, Prevention RD, in 2009. And now, she’s written a beautiful cookbook to help readers promote energy, weight loss and overall well-being. Each of the one-hundred recipes she includes in the book is easy to prepare and incredibly delicious. They’re ones you’ll want to incorporate into your weekly meal plans, tailgate parties and shower fare.

The recipe below is one from the book and something I am absolutely in love with! It is perfect for breakfast (as Nicole suggests) or even a midday snack. Full of warm spices and fiber-rich pumpkin, it’s a delicious opportunity to start your day off right.

I loved her cookbook too. Was difficult picking a recipe to share for the party!

My favorite fruit would have to be grapes! Although this time of year, pumpkin comes in a VERY close second (and I didn’t know until just recently that pumpkin was actually a fruit, not a vegetable!).
