Pumpkin Pancakes and Pumpkin Protein Bread

    You probably know the signs when you are out of balance in your life.  There is a feeling of being off and not in the flow.  I’ve noticed that I am the most out of sync when I haven’t taken time to nurture my faith practices.  Synchronicities, or what I like to call, God winks, start to happen when we reconnect with our faith.
With the appearance of the Harvest Moon this week and the beginning of Fall, my spiritual curiosity has increased and my cravings for all things pumpkin has returned-:) Here are a couple of my favorite recipes that will satisfy that pumpkin craving while keeping it healthy.
