It is that time of year that you see pumpkin in everything.  Luckily pumpkin just happens to be naturally healthy and nutritious.  Yeah!  1 cup of pumpkin has about 49 calories 3 grams of fiber and basically no fat.  It is also  loaded with an antioxidant, beta-carotene which converts to Vitamin A. Let’s hear it for a healthy ingredient that is perfect for the Fall and Winter season.  You can enjoy it all day long with these healthy recipes.  I’ve got breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snack covered.  Three cheers to pumpkin.

      Hi Myrna, I'm not quite sure what you are asking for. If you click under the links of each picture, you will be taken to the recipe. Is that what you needed? Christie

    I have made pumpkin bread for years. I have made pumpkin pancakes a few times too. I am just not as fond of it as I am sweet potatoes and apple recipes.
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Charlotte, I love all things pumpkin. My husband and daughter are very selective about what they like when it comes to pumpkin. I've actually got a new Pumpkin Bread recipe coming out on Tuesday.
  4. Awesome collection! Just in time for fall. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Hi there! The first picture looks like it is a bowl of hot cereal or soup, however the link under it says "Pumpkin Spice Coconut Smoothie". Is this correct? I was hoping for the recipe of what's in the bowl. :)
  6. I never think of myself as one to flip over all the pumpkin flavors this time of year, but then I see your round up and realize how much I love pumpkin (so versatile)!! Nice!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Patricia, I really should use pumpkin all year round. It is so nutritious and you are right incredibly versatile.
  7. Michelle@healthiersteps says
    Wow this collection is mouthwatering, that pumpkin cheesecake bar looks perfect for Thanksgiving!
  8. I love pumpkin but always see it used in high calorie recipes. I love this round up, there are so many I just can't wait to try!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Joanie, Pumpkin is so good for you, it's crazy that it isn't used more. I hope you enjoy the recipes.
  9. Pumpkin pie ice cream? Heck yes! That sounds perfect to me.
