You know it’s Fall when you hear the crunching of fallen leaves below your feet, smells of spicy warm cider and pumpkins loitering in packs alongside neighborhood porches.
Pumpkins are so much more than colorful seasonal decorations or a blank canvas for carving… they offer big benefits for your health, not to mention how tasty the are! Grated like a carrot, it can be added to cake and muffin batters. Puréed, it’s famous in pie. Sliced or diced, pumpkin is delicious roasted and eaten on its own, baked into casseroles, or stewed for soups. Pumpkin is also a low-calorie superfood. It’s high in potassium, fiber, and beta-carotene. But as good for you as pumpkin is, its mild, lightly sweet flavor is what leaves you delighted and satisfied. As The day to day preparations of meals at home can plateau; we can look to seasonal inspiration to keep meals creative and focus on healthy living.
