One of my favorite things about autumn is the spectacular flavors it inspires in cuisine. And pumpkin spice flavored beverages are definitely on the top of my list. However, I just completed a food sensitivity test, and it turned out that most of the elements in a pumpkin spice latte were potential allergens for me, including coffee, milk, ginger, and clove. So I had to find a way to still enjoy the taste I loved while avoiding the ingredients I am sensitive to. And the Pumpkin "Nice" Steamer was born. I hope you enjoy this drink as much as I do, and it gives you a pleasant alternative if you are on a restricted or allergy-sensitive diet.
Staying healthy and active while you live a life of travel can be a challenge. We spend a lot of time sitting while we drive, hours at a time, and fast-food chains are quick to offer everything that is not healthy for you. Here are some swaps, tips, and trades that I have used to keep myself on track on the road.
