Vegan Pumpkin Pasta

Vegan Pumpkin Pasta

It’s Day 1 of our 30-Day Vegan Challenge!

If you are joining us, please do not think you are going to starve this month. 🙂 Just because a meal is vegan, it does not mean it’s going to be four lettuce leaves on a plate with some tofu. Girl’s gotta eat… 🙂 We plan on making all of our meals filling and delicious.

That being said, you may potentially lose some weight this month if you are not already a super clean eater. Most of the “bad for you foods” like pizza, burgers, and cookies contain meat, dairy or eggs. So naturally, you may become more of a conscious healthy eater while trying to keep it vegan.

We are starting out our 30-Day Vegan Challenge with a creamy Vegan Pumpkin Pasta. Like hi, how good does this look!? The sauce is, of course, dairy free and we also used gluten free pasta.  ðŸ™‚

For our Clean Program followers, add this to your list of Clean Cleanse recipes!
