Healthy Mondays Pumpkin

It's that time of year again, when pumpkins and such will be coming available. I love the little pie pumpkins for the best flavor.
I have been posting some delicious looking pumpkin recipes, and decided to expand into Healthy Mondays.
Pumpkin is incredibly rich in vital anti-oxidants and vitamins. This humble backyard vegetable is very low in calories yet good source of vitamin A, flavonoid poly-phenolic antioxidants like leutin, xanthins and carotenes.
The plant is a "vine", creeps on the surface in a similar fashion like that of other members of the cururbitaceae family such as cucumber, squash, cantaloupes...etc. It is one of the most popular vegetable that is grown as commercial field crop all over the world including in the USA. from here

If you do a google search for pumpkin healthy recipes, it comes back with pages of recipes-so lots of ideas available.
Pueble Pumpkin Soup caught my eye-sounds really delicious here
Spiced Pumpkin Cookies-looked really good too here these are always so moist.
and Roasted Pumpkin with Shallots looked delicious too here
so go find some pie pumpkins, process it down, and enjoy Good Eats!
