On Monday I launched my Fit for Fall Challenge, and so far it’s going great! If you are just now stumbling upon my blog, it’s not too late to join in. Just head on over here to read all about it, and get started today.
So one of the things I am encouraging you to do in the challenge is eat at least one lean, clean and green meal a day. Today I’m sharing one of my new favorites that works perfectly with the challenge, and that I know you will love! Even though it’s still WAY too hot here in Texas to really say it’s “fall”, I’m definitely in the fall mood. I’ve been looking forward to September 22nd- aka the first day of fall- for months, and tomorrow it’s finally here. Let’s just say the minute I get home from work, the fall decorations are coming out, and for the next couple of months I’m using pumpkin in my recipes like it’s going out of style!

In today’s recipe, I used a lot of autumn veggies and chicken sausage, which has become one of my favorite meats. The flavors went so well together, and the meal just screamed “fall” to me. One of my favorite things about this recipe was that I only needed to use a pan and cutting board. Talk about an easy clean up!
It was a great recipe to kick off my favorite season, and I can’t wait to share more of my new fall recipes with y’all. Keep on the lookout for a new recipe every Wednesday! If there’s a recipe you would like to see, let me know. I’m always welcome to new ideas.

  9. Kim Munoz says:

    This looks and sounds amazing! Ive never tried chicken sausage. How is it?

    • Oh girl it’s so good! I love that there are a ton of different flavors to choose from, and you can cook it the way you want (I get mine from the meat counter at Sprouts or Kroger). I usually cook on the stovetop, in the oven or on the grill. Once it’s cooked through I slice it up and add it to the plate. It’s like a milder form of regular sausage, which is why I love it so much. The flavor doesn’t overpower the rest of your food, AND it’s better for you!
