We’re in the middle of pumpkin season, and it seems everywhere you look a pumpkin is in sight. But how exactly do we incorporate this seasonal staple into our diet? We’re here to show you how:
Try a pumpkin smoothie
Thanks to its high fiber content, pumpkin is a great choice for breakfast or even a snack. With almost three grams of filling fiber per cup, blending it into a smoothie can help keep you full and satisfied through the day.
Add to oatmeal
Stirring a spoonful or two of pumpkin into your oatmeal can turn a boring bowl of oatmeal into a savory treat. Not to mention, pumpkins are packed with beta-carotene and Vitamins A, C and K, so you’ll be loading up on key nutrients, as well.
Make a pot of soup
Chillier temperatures are on the way, and a pumpkin soup is perfect if you’re looking to warm up and incorporate fall flavors into your diet. Plus, we’ve got just the perfect recipe we want you to try.
