Today, I’m Gonna Give You Pumpkin To Talk About!
Yes, it is officially Autumn and that means it is again time to open our hearts and embrace all of that yummy scrummy Pumpkin Spice goodness that surrounds us!
You know what I love best about Autumn? It’s the only season that bestows us with delicious desserts and sweet treats AND we get to pull out the “veggie” card – who says I don’t eat healthily?!
Pumpkin Pie? Clearly vegetable! Pumpkin Butter? It’s a vegetable spread! Pumpkin Cupcakes? Just read the ingredients dummy, they contain real pumpkin!
Jokes aside, pumpkin is low in saturated fat, cholesterol AND sodium. It’s also a good source of Vitamin E, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Potassium, Copper and Manganese – phew!
OK, OK, so sticking pumpkin into a pie or a cupcake doesn’t necessarily make it a healthy food, but every little counts. It also tastes SUPER and it is a FOOD, so that makes everything pumpkin a SUPERFOOD doesn’t it?! 😉
So let me lead you on to the path of Pumpkin Goodness with these irresistible autumn inspired Pumpkin Spice Recipes. They’re simply the yummiest way to top up your five-a-day veg quota and plead veggie ignorance as you treat yourself!
