RECIPES: Pumpkin Seeds, Sweet and Sour Pumpkin, Pumpkin Bread

By Rae Udy

Have you carved your Halloween pumpkin yet? Did you save the tasty seeds? Jack-o-lanterns are definitely the most popular way to use fresh Fall pumpkins but don’t forget how nutritious pumpkins and their seeds are.
According to the National Agricultural Library at the USDA website, nal.usda.gov, 1 cup of canned pumpkin contains 83 almost fat-free calories and provides 2.69g protein and 64mg calcium. Pumpkin is one of the best food sources of vitamin A with 38,129 international units.
Each ounce of whole pumpkin seeds, roasted without salt, provides 5 grams of protein and they are a very good source of phosphorous, magnesium and manganese. Pumpkin seeds are also a good source of zinc, iron and copper so save the pumpkin seeds from the kids Jack-o-lanterns and easily turn them into tasty snacks.
If you have fresh pumpkin available, try cooking up Sweet and Sour Pumpkin. This delicious side dish adds color and great taste to any holiday table.
Pumpkin Bread is great toasted up for breakfast, filled with low-fat cream cheese for a light lunch and served warm for dessert.
