PUMPKIN is a fall favorite because of its freshness, flavor, and versatility! You can find it in your favorite latte, pies, and almost EVERYTHING during this time of year. How do you like your 🎃?!! We love it because:
1) It contains Vitamin A – great for our immune system, skin, and eye health.
2) It is rich with the antioxidant beta carotene, a carotenoid that is a natural component of orange and dark leafy vegetables. May aid in the prevention of certain cancers, eye health, and skin health.
3) It contains vitamins and minerals like vitamin c, potassium while providing a little over 30 grams of carbohydrate per 1 cup serving. The combination of nutrients makes it an excellent pre- or post-workout food that can aid in muscle function, replenish glycogen stores and assist with collagen repair!
