Pick Pumpkin This Holiday Season

I'm a huge fan of pumpkin, as regular readers of this blog may remember. Fortunately, I can get canned pumpkin year-round. But now we are in the season of fresh pumpkin, so keep this wonderfully healthy food in mind for a tasty treat this fall.

Pumpkins can be for cooking. Now my boys know. Here's what you should know about pumpkins, according to the American Cancer Society.
  • Pumpkins can be a tasty main ingredient in many autumn dishes.
  • The pumpkin is a versatile food -- bake, steam, mash, cube, or puree it and you can't go wrong.
  • Pumpkins have vitamins -- A, C, and K, especially.
  • Pumpkin puree is full of fiber.
  • Try pumpkin like this: Cube and add to a medley of roasted vegetables, toast pumpkin seeds, and for a sweet seasonal treat, give this pumpkin muffin recipe.
