Did you know pumpkins are high in antioxidants?

Eating foods high in antioxidants is important for your body, because they help you fight off free radicals.

Pumpkins are high in beta-carotene, a carotenoid your body converts into Vitamin A. By eating them you’re helping protect your skin from sun damage and helping to prevent certain cancers and cell damage.

Another bonus is they’re dense in nutrients but not in calories.😁  They have a very low calorie count, no sugar, and are an excellent source of fibre.

Fibre is a great way to keep your blood sugar levels in check, and is easy to incorporate into your daily diet. They go well in soups, roasted veggies or pureed.
