Quick Pumpkin Tips–Get the Right one!
REMEMBER: You want to be sure you get Pumpkin Puree and NOT Pumpkin Pie Filling. There is a big difference in the sugar content with the Pumpkin Pie filling having 18 grams of Sugar per serving vs. Only 5 grams in Pure Pumpkin Puree!
Pumpkin seeds are also a great snack!! I like to keep a mixture of pumpkin seeds and almonds in my purse at all times. It’s a perfect snack to take on the go.
EVERY DAY I have a 1/4 mix of pumpkin seeds and almonds. No matter whether I am following one of my lower carb or higher carb days, this is an essential daily snack!
For all you mothers out there, I also use pumpkin puree as a great addition to my daughters baby food! I’ll often add little pumpkin puree to her pureed fruit or cereals. It is a great way to add extra fiber and vitamins to any meal.
You will see Pumpkin Puree in all of my meal plans. Adding it to your oatmeal with a touch of cinnamon and stevia is an excellent way to enjoy your warm bowl of oats! 🙂
