Each year when the fall season rolls around, a recurring thought automatically pops into my brain:
GIVE ME ALL THE PUMPKIN!!!
I’ll find a way to sneak pumpkin and/or pumpkin pie spice into just about any food I can. It just feels right once the leaves start to change colors.
The good news is pumpkin is very healthful and serves up some serious nutrition.
For example, pumpkin is loaded with a powerful antioxidant called beta carotene that:
- helps cleanse your body to prevent serious health issues like cancer.
- improves eyesight.
- rejuvenates your skin and helps prevent wrinkles. (Hello natural botox!)
And let’s not overlook the impressive fiber content in pumpkin…it helps you feel full for longer, which helps prevent overeating.
One of my favorite pumpkin treats is pumpkin pie granola. So good!
My recipe is clean, loaded with real-food goodness and totally free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar. SCORE!!!
