Is it the right time for “pumpkin” everything? That smell of pumpkin spice has us drooling. So, if you’re in need of some “pumpkinspiration”, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve gathered recipes from pumpkin chilis all the way to pumpkin smoothies. Enjoy!
Why consider pumpkin?
First off, IT’S DELICIOUS! Second, it has a variety of health benefits. You’re probably familiar with pumpkin’s benefits for eye health. Most of our orange veggies provide us with that beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A and therefore benefits eye health. Just half a cup of pumpkin can provide you with your daily vitamin A needs. Vitamin A also helps your immune system stay strong. Research also shows that those who consume a diet rich in beta-carotene are at a lower risk of getting cancer! Another plus, pumpkin will keep you regular as it is full of fiber. Fiber also helps keep you full and better regulate blood sugars. Above all, IT’S TASTY!
Enough with the benefits, bring us the pumpkin recipes!
