Friday Food of the Day – October 30, 2015

FOOD OF THE WEEK – PUMPKINS!

It’s Halloween week and with all of those scary sweets being put out everywhere you look I wanted to keep with the season but in a healthy way.  How do you do that?  Pumpkins!!!

WHY PUMPKINS?

These sweet, bright-orange squashes are more versatile than you may imagine. Dice and steam them for a side vegetable, feature them in pot pies, soufflés, salads, soups and casseroles, or make cakes, breads, muffins and of course, pumpkin pie. Besides adding a sweet nutty flavor to dishes, a serving of raw pumpkin (85g) is high in vitamin A and a good source of vitamin C.
