There are a whole lot of reasons to get excited about pumpkin season!
And I’m not just talking about their gorgeous decorating appeal either.
As you can see, I’ve been busy placing pumpkins all over my house, but that’s not the only thing we’re doing with them. We’re eating them too, and there are a lot of good reasons for that.
Pumpkins are a wonderful source of vitamins A & C. They are high in fiber, potassium, and are a rich source of carotenoids. In fact, both sweet potatoes and pumpkins contain the antioxidant beta-carotene, which is believed to play a possible role in cancer prevention.
The sweet potato pumpkin soup is festive, tastes great and you can think of it like a big bowl of health benefits. I can’t wait for you to give it a try!
