Happy Halloween & Pumpkin Seeds Recipe!!



I am sure there are a lot of excited kids out there today. They are probably even more pumped that Halloween falls on a Friday. Tonight we will be celebrating Ava’s first Halloween. I can’t say we are going trick or treating but we will be visiting a few houses including my brother’s and my parents!

Ava is dressing up as a lady bug!

Isn’t she CUTE!!


She clearly had no interest in the camera. I will be sure to capture some better pictures tonight.

Yesterday I posted some Healthy Halloween Treats. In case you missed them, they are quite fun and easy to make.

If you haven’t carved your pumpkins yet, I highly recommend you do that today.

Last night after Boot Camp class I baked some pumpkin seeds as a night-time post workout snack! They fixed my salt craving and packed a nice crunch!

Salt & Pepper Pumpkin Seeds


1 cup pumpkin seeds rinsed and pat dry

1 tbsp of canola oil

salt & pepper


Toss the pumpkin seeds with oil, and place them on a baking sheet. Sprinkle evenly with salt & pepper. Bake your pumpkin seeds at 375 degrees for 5 minutes or until golden and crispy on top! Remove from oven and sprinkle with more salt!


I used my toaster oven so they cooked up super fast. Make sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!!

Will you be trick or treating or handing out candy for Halloween?

Do you have anything fun planned this weekend?
