Loving The BITE: Real Food Pumpkin-Spice-Latte

Remove the seeds from the pumpkin.  Wipe off excess pulp and moisture.  Spread in single layer on paper bag overnight to dry out completely. Then, place seeds in a single layer on a cookie sheet.  Roast at 160-170°F (about 75°C) for 15-20 minutes. By first allowing them to dry, then roasting at a low temperature for a short time better preserves the healthy oils and nutrients (compared to higher heat and longer roasting).

The more I work with cyclists, the more I am absolutely convinced that a diet high in foods and nutrients that combat inflammation, toxins and oxidative stress makes a huge difference in overall energy, endurance, stamina, recovery, health, metabolism and fat loss.  This week, you’ve got a delicious latte and delicious snack.  Loads of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.  Not bad for a little pumpkin.

Fuel Your Ride.  Nourish Your Body.
