Great Health Tip of the Day: Pumpkin Day
Pumpkins! We carve them and use them as decorations every fall season. They also make a tasty seasonal treat and are a great way to add some nutrition into your fall diet. A ½ cup serving contains 123% of the recommended daily intake for vitamin A. It is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium.
To get your fall dose of pumpkin, try:
- Adding puree to flavor your oatmeal in the morning.
- Making pumpkin pancakes.
- Baking with pumpkin—add puree to cakes, cookies, muffins, and breads.
- Trying Harmons’ pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
- Adding fresh pumpkin to chili, stews, pasta sauces, and soups.
- Making pumpkin soup.
