It’s finally fall! The leaves are changing colors, you get to swap out your entire wardrobe, and it’s finally acceptable to put pumpkin spice and cinnamon into everything!
The tricky part of fall? It’s really easy to develop a sweet tooth.
While the major fall holidays may have others gorging on an overabundance of candy and pie, you still have to stay true to your goals.
That definitely doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the fun tastes that fall has to offer. Honestly, that would be boring.
It simply means planning out meals and treats where you can have the best of both worlds – sweet and healthy!
Check out a few FitMiss recipes to add to your food prep routine and keep things interesting this fall.
Pumpkin Spice Delight Shake
It's the time of year where pumpkin everything is hard to ignore. From grocery stores to coffee shops, pumpkin is literally in everything. And for good reason, it’s absolutely delicious.
Unfortunately, most pumpkin sweets aren’t going to help you reach your fitness goals. In fact, their poor nutrition content will likely be the main reason you don’t reach your goals if you’re not careful.
Instead, try this delicious Fitmiss Pumpkin Spice Delight Shake. High in protein, it’ll help you recover from your gym sessions and help not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but also you’re appetite!
Finally, you have your chance to have your pumpkin spice and eat it too (and still hit those macros).

The month of October makes candy so enticing. Giant bags of candy flood the checkout lines of every grocery store and supercenter. Unless you live miles away from society, you’d almost have to be heartless not to buy one of those bags to hand out to kids on Halloween.

FitMiss Delight Protein Pudding
Pudding pie is always around my house come November. I take the first few relatives arriving for Thanksgiving as an omen that pudding pie is almost near.
While delicious, most pudding recipes don’t exactly fall into the "macro-friendly" category. Especially not in its pie form.
Luckily, this Fitmiss Delight Protein pudding does! With 56g of protein, it’s another great recipe that will help fuel your muscle recovery while satiating your appetite.
