As Halloween quickly approaches I find myself surrounded by something that I can easily avoid the rest of the year.  Something that's in every food from coffee, to pancakes, to LASAGNA! That something. . . pumpkins, one of the most terrible food items in America is shoved down our throats every year. Ask yourself something; when was the last time you had pumpkin by choice? Have you EVER woken up craving PUMPKIN? Look at the other seasonal foods: turkey, ham, stuffing, beer, candy, etc.  What do all of those things have in common? They are all very very delicious. SO I challenge you to put down your pumpkin latte, put down your pumpkin pie, put down your pumpkin pasta and grab some real food.
