Pumpkin gets its rich, orange color from beta carotene. Beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A, which helps prevent infections and enhance eye sight and beautify the skin. Pumpkin is considered one of my favorite SuperFoods, full of antioxidants, as well as being low in calories and high in fiber, potassium, and many other nutrients. You can incorporate pumpkin into your diet easily by using pure canned pumpkin. Make sure it is 100% pure pumpkin and does not have any added fillers like “Pumpkin Pie Filling”, which is loaded with sugar. Add pumpkin to oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, baked goods, soups, and much more!
My Favorite way to eat oatmeal is by simply addicting it to my bowl of oatmeal. Such a simple way to get in those powerful antioxidants and not to mention it tastes SO good!!
