I think I actually started liking pumpkin after all. My very first recipe using pumpkin ( Pumpkin protein smoothie ) inspired me to include this native north american vegetable in my diet. Yesterday after I finished baking these cute muffins I actually felt that I have been missing on something really special and delicious, and I should really consider some more fun ways to include pumpkin in my diet.
This vegetable does actually taste amazing. Another breakfast idea to add to the list for my picky eaters. I made these muffins and this berry smoothie to add some nutrient dense foods for a good morning start and they love it.
The bright orange flesh of a pumpkin is loaded with fiber and key vitamins and minerals.
