Pumpkins

It's fall, and that means that pumpkins are everywhere. The good news is that pumpkins are actually very good for you - as long as you don't add too much sugar in your pumpkin spice latte or pumpkin pie.

Pumpkins are by definition a fruit. While a pumpkin may not be what you think of typically as a fruit, like an apple or banana, it has many health benefits that many people may not be aware of. Pumpkins have been known to lower blood pressure, help fight off cancer, help keep your immune system strong, promote healthy skin and eyes, aid in weight loss, and help keep your heart healthy.

Pumpkins are packed with essential nutrients and vitamins. These vitamins include vitamin C, fiber, potassium, vitamin A, copper, manganese, vitamin B2, vitamin E, and iron. Pumpkins are also full of antioxidants.

Adding pumpkin into your diet may be a challenge, but it can be done if you feel like getting creative in the kitchen. One of the easiest ways to get the health benefits provided by pumpkins in to toast the seeds with some seasoning, which can be done with cinnamon if you have a sweet tooth, or salt and pepper. You can also add pumpkin into a smoothie, as a topping in a salad, cooked down into a soup, or roasted in the oven.

Eating a well-rounded, healthy diet can give you energy, help keep your immune system running properly, keep your body fit and give you a better feeling of overall well-being.
