Pie-schmy


Not just for carving or pie anymore. That’s old school.

Dr Helen Lee, a ChicagoHealers.com practitioner, says the jolly orange fruit is full of nutrients—Vit C, E, iron, zinc, magnesium, potassium, all those antioxidants, and lutein for eyes…to name a few.

Pumpkin also aids kidney, bladder, and prostate function.

The seeds kill tapeworms. Ew.

The seeds also are high in protein.

Take raw pumpkin seeds as a snack or put them in trail mix.

Make the pie—but also eat the filling as pudding, pancakes, in waffles.

Or bake or brown pumpkin with spices and put it in risotto, chili, rice and pasta.

This ought to start you off… http://www.pumpkinrecipes.org/

Is it lunch time?
