Pumpkin Health Perks! Golden Beauties!

Pumpkin Health

You visited the pumpkin patch and brought home some golden beauties. These are good for more than just making your table pretty.

Pumpkin is Skin-Protecting

One cup has 245% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A. It promotes eye health, aids vision, and promotes skin elasticity.

Pumpkin is Rich in Fiber

Low in calories and loaded with fiber, use pumpkin to spice up your holiday meals and snacks.

Pumpkin is Heart-Healthy

Reduce your "bad" cholesterol and manage your blood pressure with the dietary fiber and mono-saturated fatty acids in pumpkin.

Boost Immunity with Pumpkin

It is a great source of Zinc and helps healthy sleep, happy mood, and disease immunity.

Relieve inflammatory conditions with Pumpkin

Oil from pumpkin seeds does have anti-inflammatory value. It can relieve some symptoms of autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Decrease Cancer Risk with Pumpkin

The bright orange color in pumpkin is from the same source as the antioxidant beta-carotene. Diets rich in beta-carotene are associated with a decreased risk of developing some cancers.

Heat it. Blend it. Warm it. Roast it.

Make chili with pumpkin. Roast pumpkin with tomatoes, veggies and beans for a hearty meal. Stir pumpkin and maple syrup into oatmeal. Blend it with almond milk, spices, and ice cubes for a shake. Blend it with onion, garlic, and broth for a winter soup.

Enjoy those bright orange beauties!
