Of Course We’re Talking Pumpkins!

Pumpkins are not just for carving jack-o-lanterns. They are both tasty and nutritious and the seeds and the flesh can be used in a wide variety of dishes.

Here’s just a few of their health benefits:

-They are high in antioxidants
-They contain immune boosting vitamins like A, C and E
-Contain eyesight protecting vitamins lutein and zeaxanthin
-Full of fibre
-Great for those counting calories as they are high in nutrients and low in calories

We love pumpkins as a symbol of fall and as a surprisingly versatile ingredient in the kitchen, and here are 2 sweet recipes and one savory for you to try from our Poppy Innovations Recipe Box.
