I have been on a pumpkin kick lately, and pumpkin is so great for you. Pumpkin is loaded with fiber, about 7g per cup, and fiber is the key to not only keeping you regular but also for stabilizing blood sugar. It is also loaded with vitamin A which is great for your immune system and for keeping your eyes, skin and bones healthy. Now let’s not forget that gorgeous color it gives, this is due to the carotenoids in it which are great antioxidants for our whole body.
