‘Tis the season when pumpkins line up on the grocery shelves and stack up at the Farmer’s Markets like building blocks.
While commonly viewed as a vegetable, pumpkins are actually a fruit. Pumpkins are super healthy for you, though, but we typically don’t eat them as much as we decorate with them and pitch them out after they rot.
Pumpkins are loaded with nutrients that strengthen your immune system during cold and flu season. The more pumpkin in your diet, the more you can resist getting sick.
What’s Inside A Pumpkin?
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Beta carotene
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin E
- B vitamins
Cook Em’ Up
The “meat“ inside a pumpkin can be scooped out once the seeds and the stringy insides have been removed. You can use the meat to make all kinds of nutritious pumpkin treats. Try baking your pumpkin:
- soup and puree
- spice latte
- roasted pumpkin seeds
- vegetable stock
You can even eat pumpkin raw, but baking it tastes better, no doubt. So, don’t throw your pumpkins away – rescue them from the front porch, cook them up, and take them to your dinner table.
