It is finally pumpkin season and we have a few reasons why you should indulge in this seasonal treat. Pumpkins are rich in carotenoids, the compounds that give them their bright orange color, including beta-carotene, which the body converts into Vitamin A. Vitamin C and Vitamin A are key for good vision and a healthy immune system.  The antioxidant beta-carotene is also consumed to prevent certain cancers due to its free radical neutralizing qualities. The free radical fighters also fight wrinkles and nourish the skin.

Pumpkins are a great source of fiber and are often eaten in fiber rich diets. When consumed pumpkin makes you feel full for longer on few calories. Oh did we forget to mention they are also delicious. Check out our Pinterest board called Comida for some pumpkin recipes you can make at home.
