How to Kick off Your Morning With Pumpkin Spice Errthang

pumpkin spice everythingI grew up in Michigan, so fall was always easy to identify. Crisp air, colorful leaves, people wearing coats and scarves … you couldn’t miss it.

But in Florida, it’s different. We just had our first “cold” front come through, meaning evenings and mornings dropped into the 70s instead of the 80s. I mean, I wore a long-sleeved shirt this morning when I did yoga on the beach … or at least I did for the first 10 minutes, and then I got a little too warm. This is not bragging, I promise — while I don’t have any desire to live through an actual winter again, by September or October each year I am sick to death of sweating every time I set foot outside.

However, there’s one clear marker of autumn, regardless of where you reside in the country: pumpkin spice everything. And while I love a good pumpkin spice beer or cookie, I find that my favorite time of day to enjoy some pumpkin spice goodness is in the morning, so I wanted to share a few of my current faves.

How to Start the Day With Pumpkin Spice Everything

Pumpkin Spice Coffee. I’m sure they have this in all varieties, but I am digging the one they have at Trader Joe’s HARD.

Pumpkin Spice Waffles. This is another TJ’s find. I discovered it a few years ago, and ever since, it’s been one of the first things I look for when the shelves start turning orange in the fall. They’re SO GOOD.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal. Nature’s Path Organic sent me a Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal with Chia that I’m loving. It’s hearty and full of texture, packs 29g whole grains, 5g protein and 4g fiber. There’s a bit of sugar (6g) but it’s not overly sweet. That said, if you’re looking to sweeten things up a bit (either your oatmeal or your yogurt, or just your life!) there’s also a Pumpkin Flax Granola from the same company that is legit tasty and filling.

Pumpkin Chai Tea. Chai feels all warm and yummy on its own, but when given a pumpkin twist? Oh. My. Fall. And I don’t think anybody does flavored teas any better than DAVIDsTEA, do you?

Pumpkin Spice Cheerios. They exist and they are amazing. This is a thing you need to know.

What’s your favorite way to get your pumpkin on in the morning? —Kristen

  1. Well, it’s not about the morning really but I did see Pumpkin Bailey’s Cream. Maybe for a Sunday brunch.
