Oh My Gourd! The Only Pumpkin Recipe Round-Up You Need This Season
If there was a mascot for the season of fall, the pumpkin would be it. From porch decoration to tasty super-ingredient in some of the best recipes of the season, this plump, orange squash is not only a visual staple, it’s also a nutrient powerhouse.
When you tickle your taste buds with this fruit — scientifically, it’s considered a fruit, even though it’s more similar to veggies, nutritionally— you’re getting a food that’s low in calories, but rich in vitamins and minerals. Specifically:
- Vitamins A, B2, C, and E
Pumpkin flesh is also high in antioxidants like alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin (and many others), that can help protect your cells from free-radicals.
With so many health benefits, it’s a no-brainer to make this tasty and nutritious food a recipe superstar. That’s why I’ve created several pumpkin recipes and have rounded ‘em up for you today. Click the links to see the full recipe and get cookin’ up some great eats… and good health.
