Hey guys ... girls ... the pumpkin spice lovers of the world!

I hope you enjoy skimming through these delicious recipes to find the next healthy recipe you’ll make this fall.

I know for me, eating healthy does not come easy.

What can I say ... I like food.

So for me, I’ve had to find ways to keep nutrition healthy and satisfying, while also keeping recipes simple ... because I’m not the type of guy to make homemade noodles.

One of the major things I’ve learned along my fitness journey and through helping thousands of clients is the importance of protein in our diets.

Whether your goal is to lose weight, build muscle, or you just want to be healthier and feel your best, getting adequate amounts of protein in your diet is vital.

Meal Replacements & Powders

Ideally, we get our protein through whole foods, but the reality is that most of us fall short which inhibits our ability to reach our goals...

That’s why I personally use Level-1, and have since 2012, as my protein powder of choice to drink as a shake or use in a recipe!

At times though, I’m so busy that I can’t even stop to eat a meal or drink a shake ... and that’s when I eat a Level-1 bar.

Shoot, you could even say that might be a secret “6th recipe” ... the Pumpkin Spice Crunch Level-1 Bar.

But to wrap things up, I understand nutrition can be tough.

By focusing on making good decisions, eating enough protein, and making these recipes, you can stay on track this fall.

These incredibly delicious recipes are made using Pumpkin Spice Latte Level-1 protein powder because it’s the highest quality, best-tasting protein you will ever find.

Check out the absolutely delicious pumpkin spice protein recipes below:
