The Teal Pumpkin Project: Creating a Happier, Safer Halloween Safe for All

Today's guest blog post comes from Nancy Gregory, senior director of communications for Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE). For more information about the Teal Pumpkin Project®, please visit tealpumpkinproject.org.

But for families managing food allergies, this sugar-fueled day can be stressful, and sometimes a bit of a bummer for kids who can’t eat all the candy they collect. That’s where the Teal Pumpkin Project® comes in.

Pumpkin Empanadas for Día de Muertos

Pumpkin is a fall staple and an ingredient that is easy to find at any supermarket. That is why I am suggesting to make Pumpkin Empanadas. A perfect treat to celebrate Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos. This celebration dates from centuries ago and is a Mexican tradition. In my Mexican culture, the same way we celebrate life we also celebrate death. Because we believe there is still life after death, our beloved ones that have left deserve to be remembered and celebrated.

25 Healthy One-Pot Meals to Get Dinner on the Table Quickly

I love cooking. It's relaxing, it allows me to experiment with new flavors, and it challenges me to present my kids with fruits and veggies in a way that they would actually be willing to eat them. What I don't love so much is cleaning up the kitchen. I get so wound up recreating recipes or creating my own, that I end up with several dirty pots and pans in need of cleaning when all I want to do is stay at the table a little longer, hanging out with the family. One pot meals allow me to do this! All I have to do is measure out and chop my ingredients, throw them in the pot and watch them turn into a delicious meal.
