Enjoying Fall and a Delicious Raw Pumpkin Soup Recipe!

We hope you are enjoying all the delights of the Fall season!  In many parts of the U.S., the changing colors of the tree leaves are beyond beautiful this year – many reds, oranges and golds that depending on the weather each year do not always have time to show.  We hope you are able to see some of this beauty before the winter weather comes calling!  We also wanted to share a delicious recipe with you – one that can be for pumpkin or squash.  It would be a delicious addition to any Thanksgiving table!

Enjoy the recipe and Happy Fall from your E3Live Family 🙂
