Or should I say, “Diana, Diana, pumpkin eater.” Honestly, I simply cannot get enough pumpkin this time of year – or squash, for that matter. Pumpkin is chock full of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that may play a role in cancer prevention. These funny-looking orange vegetables are also packed with fiber, which is important for a healthy gut, regular bowel movements, and weight management. What’s more, the scrumptious orange flesh provides vitamin C and potassium, and the delicious little seeds pack magnesium, copper, and zinc!
Here’s one of my favorite new pumpkin recipes. Try it and let me know what you think!
Until next time, make every bite count!
