Sometimes when you fall in love, you fall hard. It doesn’t always make sense. Obviously, we’re talking about food here. Consider the pumpkin spice latte. You either love it or you love it.
The now-iconic pumpkin spice latte is only the tip of the pumpkin spice-flavored iceberg. It’s not just a flavor, it’s a fall lifestyle. In fact, it’s so much a lifestyle that it has the ability to take over every part of your day. Well ... almost. Here’s an hour-by-hour guide to pumpkin spicing it up all day long. Because if you want to pumpkin spice hard this fall, you totally can.
Your alarm was supposed to go off at 7 am —but your dog has woken you up instead. After a nice long walk (or jog), grab them a pumpkin-flavored Whole Paws Soft & Chewy Dog Treat. Even your four-legged friends should be in on the trend.
Officially start your morning with the warm essence of fall. Pop a 365 by Whole Foods Market Organic 100% Arabica Beans Pumpkin Spice Coffee Capsule into your coffee maker. It’s the other fall way to caffeine (you know ... when you’re not drinking a Pumpkin Spice Latte).
Reheat some of your weekend waffles that you made using 365 by Whole Foods Market Spiced Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix for yourself, and put out the rest for whoever else wanders into the kitchen. No shame in reheating waffles, especially when they’re this good, made with real pumpkin and are limited edition.
If you thought that pumpkin spice was just meant for eating, think again. Use some 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Cardamom Hand Sanitizer as you head into the office in the morning.
When that way-too-early-craving-for-lunch starts, sneak a few 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Spice Latte Pecans out from your bag to keep away those hunger pangs before your lunch break. You’re the person whose work bag smells like fall. That’s a win.
It’ll soon be time to get ready for lunch, so use a little 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Cardamom Foaming Hand Soap before you dig in. Oh yeah, you’re covered in the hand soap department, too.
Keep that seasonal vibe going with some Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Powder that’s ... you guessed it, Pumpkin Spice flavor! Mix it up with some coconut milk. Is there anything this little spice that could just can’t do? Grab a little baguette on the side and a salad to complete your lunch.
Be the office hero you wish to see in the world. Pull out cupcakes that you baked the night before —made with 365 by Whole Foods Market Spiced Pumpkin Cupcake Mix, of course. It never hurts to be the person everyone associates with cupcakes.
Take a coffee break to stay your sharpest. If you have a coffee maker at the office, bring in some 365 by Whole Foods Market 100% Arabica Beans Pumpkin Spice Coffee and brew a few cups for coworkers on your floor. In the process, make the entire office smell like fall: no candle necessary.
This is the moment in the afternoon that most people crash, but you’re not most people. It’s time for your favorite snack: 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Spice Granola and Greek yogurt to keep yourself running throughout the rest of the day.
Take a break from pumpkin spice. For thirty minutes.
Keep some 365 by Whole Foods Market Organic 100% Juice Pumpkin Spiced Apple Cider in the fridge at work so that if you need a little 4 pm sip of something sweet, something’s there waiting for you. Also, make sure you label it, because you know that everyone else in the office is a diehard pumpkin spice fan, too.
Time for you to clock out. Grab a little 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Cardamom Hand Sanitizer after you head out of the office for the day. The scent and lack of germs are both refreshing, which is perfect for the end of the day.
When you come home from work, take the dog for a jog. Burn off a little steam before dinner and reward yourself and your pup after a long day. He gets another pumpkin-flavored Whole Paws Soft & Chewy Dog Treat for keeping up with you.
Time to wash up for dinner. Whether it’s the kids playing outside or you needing to feel a little more put together after giving the pup a bath, wash up with a little 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Cardamom Foaming Hand Soap. The calming scent will put you at ease when you’re about to sit down for dinner.
Make sure that dinner has hints of fall in it with a Pumpkin Spice Soup. You thought you couldn’t get pumpkin spice into a warm, light dinner? Think again.
Finally! It’s time for dessert! Top off your favorite ice cream with 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Spice Whipped Topping—or be the person that has whipped topping on its own.
Make sure to put away a few snacks for you to bring along to work tomorrow. Pre-portion some 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Spice Latte Bites and 365 by Whole Foods Market Organic Pumpkin Spice Applesauce to add something fresh to your midday routine. Then top off the night by catching an episode of your favorite TV show. Grab a handful of 365 by Whole Foods Market Pumpkin Spice Latte Popcorn while you watch.
After a long day, settle in with a good book and get ready for bed. Maybe you can’t consume or use pumpkin spice products while you’re asleep, but you can dream of all of them. And, you know, when you get them at Whole Foods Market, you can feel good about your pumpkin spice fall lifestyle, since there are no artificial flavors in any of the foods we sell. You know what that means: Real. Pumpkin. Spice.
It’s an early morning. Wake up and head out the door and stop by a Whole Foods Market to order a coffee drink to-go. It’s time for a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Obviously.
