Pork Loin Chops with Cinnamon Apples and Squash

Fall is officially here and what better way to jump in then with seasonal vegetables like squash and apples! This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite Food Network stars, Rachael Ray. Tammy and I are constantly inspired by her vibrant personality and deliciously simple recipes. I tried Rachel’s Apple Juice Pork a few years ago and fell in love with it, so easy and so tasty. I love the contrast of tart, yet sweet, apples with pork as well, so added that in with brown sugar and cinnamon. Pork loin is a great lean, white meat alternative to chicken, and it goes especially well with these cozy Fall flavors. Try it this week!

Spiced Nutella Chia Pudding with Bananas, Honey and Almonds

Chia seed pudding is one of my new obsessions. Thank you to Giada De Laurentiis for introducing me to such a simple, healthy and tasty treat! It’s a great wholesome snack to have, and especially a perfect breakfast to start off the day with. Those chia seeds are jam packed with Omega 3s, and you’ll get a load of calcium and vitamins in the milk, fruit and almonds. I’ve discovered that it’s also very flexible according to your taste, you can mix and top chia pudding with just about anything. Here is a recipe for one of my favorite combinations, Nutella and bananas!
