I tried, guys. Really, I did.

I promised myself I would wait until the first day of fall to open my first can of pumpkin. I refused to be that girl. You know the one I’m talking about.. the one that is all “OMG #PSL” in like, August.

And yet, here we are. Three days away from the official start of fall and elbows deep in Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa. Soo close…

The Snacking Fallacy
 
 

Let’s talk about what comes to mind when you hear the word “snack”. Do visions of sugarplums dance in your head? If so, you’re not alone.
