Enjoy pumpkin all day

Halloween pumpkin carving is all about fun, artistic expression. I hope you are saving the seeds to roast and enjoy as a healthy snack. Beyond this month, consider including the versatile pumpkin “meat” in just about any meal, from breakfast to dessert. Pumpkin is a powerhouse of nutritional benefits, while being low in calories. The Orange One is loaded with beta carotene (1/2 cup of canned pumpkin has about five times the RDA for vitamin A) plus a good helping of iron, and minerals including potassium. I don’t use many canned foods, but canned pumpkin is fine – it has no additives or other distractions. Stock up when it’s on sale, and you’ll be able to enjoy pumpkin pleasing recipes all year. Here are a few delicious discoveries.
