I’m one of those people who stock up on canned pumpkin and enjoys eating it (and butternut squash and sweet potatoes…) all year-round, but I appreciate that for some folks, there’s only one season in which to consume this low-calorie food: Fall. If you are one of those people, you’re missing out on about 9 months of nutritional benefits. Pumpkin is rich in antioxidants (think: cancer-fighters) like vitamin C and E and is off the charts in vitamin A. It’s also an excellent source of minerals like copper, phosphorus, calcium, and potassium.
