October is fall harvest month! Nothing says, “It’s fall, y’all,” quite like our favorite orange gourd, the pumpkin! Pumpkins are the symbol that soon leaves will be falling and a signal for most turkeys to run for the hills, as they’ll soon find themselves on your finest holiday china. Yearly, pumpkins adorn our porch steps, table centerpieces and treasured recipes, but have you ever taken a step back to truly appreciate the pumpkin?
This fall, whether you’re carving a whimsical Jack o’ Lantern or whipping up your grandmother’s pumpkin and nutmeg pie, give a moment to think about this seasonal squash.
Here are the best pumpkin recipes from the month of October 2013, listed in no particular order:

Why do we love these magical green fruits so much? First off, they’re clearly delicious. But they’re healthy, too! Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fat (which can improve cholesterol levels, decrease risk of heart disease, and benefit brain activity), vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant), and vitamin B6 (promotes healthy skin and serves as a back-up fuel). Plus, they’re just darn delicious. And while avocados are a great addition to just about any healthy recipe, just remember not to overdo it — this fruit can be fairly high in calories for those watching their intake.
Here are 39 of our favorite delicious, at least semi-healthy avocado recipes. Try one of them today!
Avocado and Egg Breakfast Pizza
Pizza for breakfast? Yes, please! A whole-wheat Naan bread or other flatbread makes a great hearty base for a breakfast pizza. Top with avocado mash and an egg cooked any style. Throw on some extra veggies (we like arugula and tomato) for even more flavor and nutrients.

Hummus is a traditional Middle Eastern accompaniment made with chick peas and tahini. You might be wondering “What is tahini?”. This ingredient is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. You can find it at any Middle Eastern or Indian grocery store, and even some regular supermarkets carry it in the “Ethnic foods” aisle. You can also buy it online from Amazon. (Get the kind in the jar, not the can. Jarred is less bitter.)
If you still can’t find tahini or don’t have it on hand, don’t worry about it. The hummus will still taste good without it. Hummus without tahini isn’t exactly the way it’s supposed to be made, but if can’t use tahini and you’d like to try making your own hummus, you have to look at the alternatives.
Here are 20 delicious hummus recipes without tahini to get you inspired, in no particular order:
Hummus Without Tahini Recipe
Use a fair amount of lemon juice and a few spices to bring up a good flavor. There’s a lot of flexibility here too – more garlic, maybe some artichoke hearts, more or less of one spice or another.
