Thrive 5: Get Pumped For Pumpkin Season

Even in the throes of an unseasonably warm Indian summer, Halloween is in the air—and we're already craving the pumpkin-y goodness that comes along with it. Our editors rounded up five of our favorite ways for the whole family (including pets!) to enjoy fall's signature, nutrient-rich squash.

1.  Simple Mills Pumpkin Muffin Mix

Made with 100 percent almond flour and all-natural ingredients, this gluten-free mix makes mouthwatering, dairy-free, grain-free, paleo-friendly pumpkin muffins in under 30 minutes. Just add eggs, oil, water, and bake! If you're craving some extra sweetness, sprinkle coconut flakes and unsalted pumpkin seeds on top of the muffins before baking, or drizzle melted dark chocolate over these delectable muffins just before serving.

2. Farmer's Market Foods Organic Pumpkin Pie Mix

This mix boasts all the freshest, organic ingredients an unforgettable pumpkin pie calls for: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice, cane sugar, and sweet pumpkin, all blended into one rich, smooth purée. This simple mixture makes a great base for decadent, creamy pumpkin soup, too.

3. Nummy Tum Tum Pamperin' Pumpkin Blend

Pumpkin is yummy in your pet's tummy, too—and super good for their digestive systems thanks to its rich fiber content. Pamperin' Pumpkin blend combines organic pumpkin, apples, and cranberries in a purée that can be squeezed over pet food or served as a treat on its own.

4. Woodstock Organic Pumpkin Seeds

If carving pumpkins and digging out seeds seems a like time-consuming mess, reach for our favorite organic pumpkin seeds instead. They're a tasty source of protein, iron, and fiber, and are positively addictive year round. We enjoy them straight out of the bag or chopped and sprinkled over warm cereal.

5. Pacific Foods Organic Pumpkin Puree

Ready to use in every fall recipe, from baked desserts to savory side dishes, this  organic pumpkin purée will make any meal taste gourmet. It's a superstar base for a ton of our favorite recipes, including these gluten-free pumpkin spice cookies that make the perfect healthified Halloween treat.
