Pumpkin is chock full  goodness. You can tell by its bright colour that it’s going to be going to be good for you. Not only is pumpkin loaded with vitamin A and antioxidant carotenoids, particularly alpha and beta-carotenes, it’s a good source of vitamins C, K, and E, and lots of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and iron.

Overwhelmed with requests to make a pumpkin recipe! So here you go….’tis the season for everything pumpkin. Truth be told, despite the health benefits of pumpkin, I’m not much of a pumpkin flavor type of girl. Yes, I do love my squash but when it comes to adding it to dessert I think it gets weird. But I suppose it become socially acceptable to make everything pumpkin when Fall rolls around.
