All Things Pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin chips (?) - it is fall after all which means everything has transitioned to being pumpkin flavored. But how healthy are all of these "pumpkin flavored" things? The majority of the time, pumpkin flavored foods contain loads of sugar, and very little actual pumpkin. Pumpkin itself is a healthy vegetable that is low in calories and high in nutrients! Try out these tasty pumpkin recipes that will help fuel your pumpkin obsession.
