Pumpkin has become the star fruit of fall. Recipes for pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pies, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin breads, etc. flood food blogs this time of year. It may drive you a little batty but before you submit to pumpkin overdose. But before you pull all of your hair out…
Take a look at these nutritional facts:
- Pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin A. One cup of pumpkin contains over 200% of the recommended daily allowance of this eye-saving, wrinkle fighting, imune boosting vitamin.
- Pumpkin is also a great source of natural fiber. Combine that with it’s low calorie count, pumpkin can fill you up and keep you feeling fuller, longer without tons of calories. There is only 49 calories per cup!
- Pumpkin is high in beta-carotene. And beta-cartoene is your friend. It is a powerful antioxidant which means it helps get rid of damaging free radicals that damage your cells and DNA.
