Pumpkins are good for a lot more than festive decor! Take advantage of their bounty by trying new ways to fit pumpkin into your diet.
"Pumpkins are a superb food—fiber-rich and packed with health-promoting nutrients like beta-carotene and potassium," says Gayl Canfield, PhD, RD, director of nutrition for the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa in Miami.
And don't discount the seeds! Just half a cup of toasted pumpkin seeds has 92 percent of your daily value of magnesium. Plus, they're full of protein and fiber.
