Quick, add pumpkin to your holiday menu

Filed under:

If it's not already on your Turkey Day menu, you might want to consider whipping up some pumpkin delights for your holiday guests. Nutrition experts say a little pumpkin in your diet could help ward off everything from cancer to blindness.

The low-calorie pumpkin -- also rich in vitamin A, potassium, and fiber -- is a known Superfood with super powers that can help save your sight, lower your blood pressure, even help you drop those unwanted pounds. Both fresh and canned pumpkin work wonders but the canned variety is the most nutritious since canning allows for the preservation of vitamins.

Are your recipe wheels turning? If so, aim for dishes that combine the healthiest of ingredients and minimal amounts of sugar.
