The pumpkin is one of the best business of nutrition of everything and must be part of any healthy diet. You can begin with pumpkin fresh or canned buy. I almost always use fresh vegetables, but in this case I am left with canned. I tried to start from scratch, but I decided that the cut in slices, cleaning, baking and the maceration was not a good use of my time. (If you know a way to make this process easier, please share it!)

Pumpkin is loaded with fiber and contains only 50 calories per cup. These are some of the nutritional qualities most notable of pumpkin:

Vitamin A - a cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin contains more than 200% of their daily recommended intake
Beta-carotene - a potent antioxidant and agent antiinflammatory
The vitamins C and E - antioxidant vitamins that are synergistically useful for brain function and may reduce the risk of Alzheimer disease
Potassium - contains more of bananas and makes a great meal after training
Magnesium - largely absent from our diet helps the body with hundreds of functions
Pantothenic acid - one of the B vitamins, helps control the stress
It made the fun! From pumpkin contains seeds, is technically a fruit and not a vegetable.
Much more than the empanada
It seems that there is nothing that you can do with this food versatile. You can add almost any dish of adding fiber, color, taste and nutrition. It makes a great substitute for low calorie content for the oil to cook in the oven.

The pumpkin canned and pumpkin pie are available throughout the year, but at this time of year, you can find versions of pumpkin of ice cream, mixture of bread, ravioli, cream cheese to coat, yogurt, butter, soup mixture for pancakes, cereal bars, and the cake of chocolate mousse ! If you prefer to drink their pumpkin, there are ale of pumpkin and squash coffee spices, chai tea rooibos and.
