Transformation, One Delicious Dessert at a Time...Progress on the Path!

Organic Pumpkin Hand Pie ~ no refined sugar & delicious!

The annual Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival is one of the biggest events on the West Coast - over 200,000 attendees come to celebrate all things pumpkin.

Festival 2012 - when I strolled the streets last year looking for something I could eat without sugar - there was not one thing - except a great organic pumpkin soup at Cafe Chez Shea on Main Street. I spoke to Chef Alfredo and encouraged him to make pumpkin pie for the next Festival without sugar.

Festival 2013 --  not only did Chef Alfredo make his delicious pumpkin pie this year without sugar - I enrolled the only other organic cafe on Main Street, Local FATT and Chef Kevin Koebel to do the same - both of their pies were sell-out successes - and I had a booth on Main Street two blocks from the Food Court as a health coach and educator -  selling nothing - but my enthusiasm to educate the public about the fabulous array of delicious alternative sweeteners that can replace refined sugar in any recipe. The public loved it. We reached, literally thousands of people.
