The Thrills of Autumn Dieting

Autumn Diet Tricks, Treats
Summer's heat is slowly fading, and the face of Autumn is over the horizon. Cooler temperatures, the approaching holidays, and the lovely colors that Autumn brings will all add a big boost to your diet.
That daily romp around the block will come so much easier as the hot air is replaced with the crispness of fall.
You'll want to rush out to your favorite department store and grab a new jogging outfit to replace your worn-out shorts and T-shirt.
Just don't become too fond of it, because next year at this time, you'll be donating it to charity because you'll be far too tiny to ever wear it again.
Other special things that Autumn bestows is her tasty fruits and veggies - pumpkin and squash in particular.
It just isn't Autumn without pumpkin pie, and it's one of your best sources for beta-carotene, fiber, and iron, packing a mere 80 calories per cup. Pumpkin pie is also one of your healthier choices where pies are involved.
As for the squash, you'll love our Acorn Sasquatch - ooooh, that sounds a bit scary! But....it's a good kind of scary.
And there's always room for Tinkerbell Cake.
Enjoy these fall recipes that go hand in hand with the colorful season upon us. But for now, let's place the spotlight on our Low Calorie Pumpkin Pie Recipe. It's very easy to prepare and it very low in calories; one slice contains only 150 calories. This recipe also creates two nice-sized pies.
If you wish to purchase your pie crust rather than making them from scratch, you can certainly do such. If you purchase or make a deep dish crust, the filling should just fit - for those who prefer a thick pumpkin filling.
You can also omit the whipped topping; in fact - if you prefer the real deal, light low fat whipped cream contains a skinny 15 calories per serving.
