‘Tis the season for pumpkin-flavored everything—from cookies to coffee drinks. But all those artificial flavors aside, did you know real pumpkin is actually loaded with essential nutrients like vitamin A for healthy vision (a cup of cooked pumpkin contains more than 200% of your RDA), vitamin C to support immune health, the antioxidant beta-carotene, potassium, iron, and lots of gut-friendly fiber? Warm up your weekend mornings with this delicious pumpkin treat you can feel good about!
