Health Benefits of Including Pumpkin in your Diet:

Pumpkin is a great source of beta-carotene which is converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A helps to promote immunity and eye health as well as healthy skin and bones. Here are some ways to include pumpkin in your diet: add pumpkin to oatmeal or yogurt with a sprinkle of cinnamon, substitute pumpkin for fat (butter, oil) in baked goods, or add pumpkin to your soups or sauces for a creaminess factor.
