Fall into Pumpkin Recipes with NutraCleanse™

Autumn is all about the return of cozy comfort foods, and we want to share three new recipes with you. All of them use NutraCleanse™, so you can eat your heart out while knowing you’re consuming adequate amounts of fibre and omega fatty acids.

Pumpkin is naturally very high in fibre, and so is NutraCleanse™–it’s main ingredient is ground flax seed! Basically, they’re a match made in heaven for fibre seekers.
