Wow it is November! When I think of November, I become thankful for all my blessings. Thank you, all of my readers and people who have come to my cooking demos. I am grateful for everything I have, including my love of learning and cooking.
I also equate November with Thanksgiving and all the delicious foods and aromas of a holiday feast. In our family, pumpkin pie completes our Thanksgiving celebration. This year, I wanted to learn more about pumpkin.
Did you know that pumpkins are nutritional powerhouses full of fiber, vitamins , minerals and antioxidants? Vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids, copper, calcium, and potassium are just a few of the nutrients in pumpkins.
I encourage you to add pumpkins, a fall powerhouse, to your diet by trying new pumpkin recipes.
