I’m continuing on for Mental Health Awareness Month with ‘The Gut-Brain Connection’ from my Gut and Psychology Syndrome series.
You will heal. I will help.
Yesterday was a weird day. Let’s just get that out of the way. I needed to lighten my thoughts up a bit, so I figured today was the perfect day to finally share with you my Pumpkin Pie Pudding recipe.
Last night I had a crazy dream. I couldn’t fall asleep until almost 11pm, and then I was up several times throughout the night.
The culmination was this dream.
In my dream, another one of our social workers (not the one who called before) called to tell me, “Well, I have some interesting news for you…..” A few seconds prior, her connection had been cutting in and out and she mentioned that she could lose me soon. And then she lost me before she could finish the sentence.
She didn’t return my call immediately.
In the meantime, I told Ryan exactly what she had said. In my dream, he was crying.
I then, of course, woke up from the dream.
I never did find out exactly why or what she was going to tell me.
This morning, the story lingers, even though it’s not true, just a dream.
And that’s kind of how I feel about the entire day yesterday.
I heard something that doesn’t seem real. I cried. It crushed me.
I told a good friend something super private, my own little “unreal dream” I’ve been living.
Do you ever feel like in life, just like in dreams, you have a hard time understanding what’s real and what’s not? What should be real and what should not?
Anyways, it’s morning now.
Today is a new day.
I’ll totally make a batch of this for Pumpkin Pie Pudding because it’s a dreamy that gives me the fall daydreams all day long.
p.s. Still totally in the 90’s here, still totally hating it, and still totally willing my life into fall days.

p.s. It’s also more of a JELLO than a pudding, but it’s also kind of a cross-over of JELLO meets pudding.
Let’s be honest. No one has time for 106 degrees before summer even begins. But alas, it has come, and Samarah started demanding all the ice cream, especially in the form of my Mint Chocolate Popsicles.
This recipe is from my summer eats, treats and desserts e-book, which hosts so many goodies for the hot summer months (and all year long).
Click HERE to pin them to Pinterest for later.
These popsicles are gluten free, grain free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, sugar-free plus Low-FODMAP and GAPS Diet approved.
But really, who cares if they don’t taste good, right? Scouts honor. Kids and adults alike love them.
You must try these!
