pumpkin and seeds

If there is one word that has become synonymous with fall, it’s pumpkin. As the leaves and temperatures start to fall, we add it to our drinks, our soups, our desserts — we just can’t get enough!

Pumpkin is low in calories, high in fiber, and helps lower cholesterol and manage weight. It’s a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, B vitamins, zinc, beta carotene, and potassium.

Even better, it can be incorporated into dishes both savory and sweet. From smoothies to soups, this vitamin-packed powerhouse can be a tasty addition to nearly anything.

This season, find all the delicious ways you can use pumpkin in your life – anywhere from cooking to a pumped-up workout:
