THE PUMPKIN: HELPING YOU KEEP IN SHAPE THROUGH THE WINTER MONTHS
The pumpkin is one of your best friends when it comes to keeping in shape since it contains very few calories (only 20Kcal per 100g). It also contains many nutrients, including vitamins A, B2, B5, C and E, iron, magnesium and potassium, whilst its high fibre content helps keep the bowels healthy.
THERE’S MORE TO THE PUMPKIN THAN SOUPS AND MASH!
In addition to soups, mash and gratins, the pumpkin is also perfect for making delicious chutneys to be served with grapes, or in preserves. Have you thought about serving it as an aperitif, for example? Dried and salted pumpkin seeds are the perfect accompaniment to pre-dinner drinks, not to mention a delicious crunchy addition to a green salad!
