If you are wondering what to cook the family this weekend… or in the coming weeks as autumn takes hold… then let Carol Taylor tempt you with recipes using the healthy and versatile pumpkin… Pumpkin soup perhaps the delicious sounding Pumpkin Pie muffins.. and thanks to Carol for sharing the link to the post on health benefits of pumpkin seeds.. Take your appetite…
A highly nutrient-dense food. It is rich in vitamins and minerals but low in calories. Pumpkin seeds, leaves, and juices all pack a powerful nutritional punch.
There are many ways pumpkin can be incorporated into desserts, soups, salads, preserves, and even as a substitute for butter.
It still makes a great Halloween decoration though, doesn’t it??
Healthwise the potassium contained within pumpkins can have a positive effect on blood pressure and the antioxidants in pumpkin could help prevent degenerative damage to the eyes. Pumpkins are also a fantastic source of fibre.
Fresh is best though so please avoid canned pumpkin pie mix, as it typically contains added sugars and syrups so check the label and look for that 100% sign…Then that’s good, isn’t…
