Pumpkins!!

Because everyone loves pumpkins!!

Halloween is a great excuse to talk about a superstar vegetable that I love to eat - pumpkin!

Pumpkin, a type of winter squash, is naturally fat free, and provides only 30 calories per one cup serving. Pumpkin is also a good source of fiber, beta carotene, potassium, and two antioxidants called lutein and beta-cryptoxanthin. Lutein helps reduce the risk of macular degeneration and beta-cryptoxanthin helps fight arthritis.

Pumpkin flesh tends to be sweet, making it a terrific ingredient for pies, soups, puddings, and breads. For a yummy pumpkin breakfast pudding, try this simple recipe listed below.

Pumpkin-Yogurt Breakfast Pudding:

  • ½ cup 100% canned pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup (8 ounce container) vanilla, nonfat yogurt
  • 1-2 tablespoons wheat germ
  • Optional chopped walnuts (lightly toasted)

Mix pumpkin puree with vanilla yogurt and top with wheat germ and chopped, toasted walnuts. Serve for breakfast... or enjoy after dinner for dessert.
