Cucina Pasta-bilities - 3 Reasons to Jump on the Pumpkin-Wagon

Throughout this month it seems that everyone has joined the Pumpkin Craze. From Pumpkin Spiced Latte’s to  Pumpkin Pancakes/ Donuts/ Waffles/ Scones , everyone has pumpkin on the brain! Well, perhaps people aren’t as crazy as they seem, because there are some surprising health benefits to adding a little more pumpkin to your diet!

Did you know…

  1. 1 cup of cooked pumpkin has over 200% daily value of Vitamin A – great for eyesight health!
  2. Pumpkin is a great source of fiber, which can help you lose weight as more fiber in your diet helps you stay feeling full longer!
  3. Pumpkin is a great source of potassium! Instead of reaching for a banana, adding a cup of cooked pumpkin to your after-workout meal can give your body even more of a boost in potassium, which helps balance out electrolytes and keeps your muscles going strong!
