October is here and you probably don't need us to tell you that means pumpkin everything! While you either love the taste of pumpkin or you hate it, there's no doubt that pumpkins actually have a lot of nutritional value!
Now, to be fair, we don't mean that pumpkin spice lattes are going to improve your health, BUT incorporating real pumpkin into your meals can help improve your health. Here are just some of the benefits:
- Feel fuller! Pumpkin seeds have tons of fiber which helps you feel fuller much longer, making over-snacking a thing of the past!
- See better! Cooked pumpkin contains more over 200% of your recommended vitamin A which helps improve vision!
- Feel better! While a slice of pumpkin pie is sure to make anyone smile, pumpkin seeds are actually rich in amino acid tryptophan which is known to produce serotonin – one of the major players in boosting your mood!
