October is the month for pumpkins, and trust me, I enjoy it as much as I can. Pumpkin recipes, pumpkin patches, pumpkin carving, pumpkin candles and pumpkin decorations- I love it all! I have so much fun using it in my recipes, and there’s something special about treating yourself to a PSL (especially when it’s homemade) or taking pictures at a pumpkin patch. Pumpkins are probably the main reason I love fall so much! 

Before the recipes, though, I want to talk nutrition for a second. I know pumpkin has become pretty mainstream lately, but did you know just how amazing it is?! (Well besides the fact that it’s delicious). Pumpkin is a powerhouse of nutrients. Just one cup of it contains more than 200% of your daily intake of Vitamin A, which is great for your eyesight. It’s also chock full of fiber, which helps aid in weight loss and helps you feel fuller for longer. Pumpkin also contains the antioxidant beta-carotene, which has been linked to preventing certain types of cancers. It’s also perfect for recovering from a workout because of its high amount of potassium that helps restore electrolytes and keeps your muscles functioning their best. Since it’s also full of Vitamin C, it can help boost your immune system, and who doesn’t want that? And, on top of all that, it’s amazing. ‘Nuff said.1 

So, to celebrate the month of pumpkins, I rounded up so delectable looking recipes that I’m sure you are going to love. Helloooo pumpkin.
