Fall is here, and the weather is already getting cooler. We figure we can either be sad at the absence of summer, or get excited about the crisp, cool weather and all of the yummy food that comes with it.

(We decided to get excited!)

With the emergence of fall comes the onslaught of a flavour we never get tired of: pumpkin spice. We want to show you how to incorporate NutraCleanse™ into your favourite pumpkin spice recipes! So here are our 3 ideas on how to do just that:
