Pumpkins

Pumpkins aren’t just for carving on Halloween! They are rich in phytosterols, linked to lowering cholesterol levels, and vitamin A (beta-carotene), which help fight cancer-forming cells and also known for supporting healthy vision and cell development. Pumpkins are even said to be a natural wrinkle fighter. Try it as a spicy bisque or roasted as a side dish.
