By admin 19-October-2017
It’s almost Halloween! With the weather starting to cool down and the foliage taking on the stunning shades of fall, new veggies are in season adding more variety to your comforting fall meals. One of our favorite vegetables to come out this season is an incredible powerhouse of health benefits. It is rich in protein and fiber, as well as vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Even though its flavour is often described as sweet, pumpkin actually helps lower blood glucose level, as well as control blood pressure. All these benefits and more are exactly why we think you should include this amazing vegetable in your recipes, starting with these delicious favorites we know you will love!
