Pumpkin Bread & Muffins - Au Naturale!
There's a good reason that when autumn rolls around, the world seem so swoon over everything pumpkin: it's delicious! Better than that, it's also very nutritious! Pumpkin is tasty all year long, really. ;-)
Pumpkins are in the winter squash family, along with acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash. The rich, vibrant colors are excellent sources of phyto(plant)chemicals called carotenes, and the richer the color, the richer the concentration. The carotene pigments have powerful antioxidant effects against many cancers, heart disease, and diabetes. Pumpkin is also a good, natural source of vitamin C, B1,B6, niacin, folic acid, pantothenic acid, potassium, and dietary fiber.
