½ cup pumpkin purée

½ cup ground flax seeds
3 tbsp. agave nectar
Add ingredients into medium bowl and stir to combine. Cover bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours (this will make them easier to roll). Roll the mixture into about 12–16 balls (ping pong ball size, or use a melon baller!). Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
“Good project on a cold Winter afternoon ~ How to Make A Treat for your Squirrel Friends.
We all have this deep-rooted fascination with the wild. It’s as simple as feeding squirrels and pigeons on a park bench for some people.
SQUIRREL COOKIES OR “NUT BALLS”…YUM! Another thing you can do is make “squirrel cookies”. They’re filling for the squirrels. Bags of sunflower seed, peanuts, and corn, hazelnut, pecan, or walnut pieces. Soft, plain suet and peanut butter to shape balls.
Roll the dough into small balls about the size of a walnut, or into a cookie form. Roll into some nuts or sunflower seeds. Freeze well . Squirrels won’t eat it if it’s mushy.
Squirrels can often survive quite well on their own if we have created an ecologically diverse yet well-balanced environment for them to live in. By putting nuts outside in the winter months can be a life saver to some creatures. Squirrels will also eat apples.
Tie and hang Squirrel Cookies from tree branches and places squirrels can reach easily.

This year we’re headed to family for our Thanksgiving feast. My part of the cooking duties is desert, not pies though. My Mother-In-Law is the amazing pie maker of the family! So I’ve been scouring the web seeking out recipes because at the moment I’m not taking the time to whip up my own and give a test run or two. So I thought I’d share some fabulous vegetarian and vegan recipes that I’ve stumbled across in hopes you may be inspired to try something different and make a new tradition of a kinder, gentler holiday! Enjoy browsing the recipes and let me know if you tried one or two and how it turned out!
Here are my picks for my part of the holiday feast baking!
Arbonne Truffles (No Bake)
Mix 3 cups of oats, 2 1/4 cups Arbonne Protein Mix, 2 cups Almond butter, and 1 3/4 cup honey or agave (low glycemic). After mixing ingredients, roll into 1″ balls. Microwave Wilton’s Candy Melts (try 1/3 of a bag) at 30 second intervals. With a fork dip each ball into the chocolate and tap off excess. Sprinkle with topping!

The Les Mills Trainers Philosophy
“The McCartney family launches short film ‘One Day a Week’ highlighting the environmental impact of animal agriculture and encourages people to help by eating less meat, with appearances by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone.
Ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 23) next week, Meat Free Monday has released a short film about a huge contributor to climate change that is often left out of conference discussions – animal agriculture.
“There’s a simple but significant way to help protect the planet and all its inhabitants”, says Paul to camera. “And it starts with just one day a week. One day without eating animal products can have a huge impact in helping maintain that delicate balance that sustains us all.”
With dire consequences for ourselves and future generations, livestock production results in vast amounts of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. It requires increasingly unsustainable levels of precious resources including land, water and energy, and is a major contributor towards global environmental degradation and climate change.
The Meat Free Monday campaign has had an incredible response since its launch in 2009, with many of the world’s leading authorities on climate change endorsing meat reduction as an effective way of fighting global warming.
The campaign’s new film ‘One Day a Week’, largely funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies and produced in collaboration with French film director Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s Hope Production, amplifies this message using the breathtaking aerial photography with which Arthus-Bertrand has become synonymous.
Narrated by Paul, and with appearances from Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone, the film describes how the beauty of the planet only exists through a delicate balance of climatic conditions – a balance we are dangerously disrupting through our insatiable desire for animal products.
The film uses Paul’s own music – tracks from his 1997 classical music album Standing Stone, as well as an unreleased song called Botswana.
Meat Free Monday’s aim is to raise awareness and inspire people to make a change in their diets from an easily achievable starting point.
