Recent studies show that pumpkin seeds and pumpkin flesh act as an important addition to your nutrition.
The pumpkin flesh is known to hold a high level of fibers and beta-carotene (hence the deep orange color) both known to help prevent cancer and to also help keep our digestive system clean and healthy.Fibers absorb and help digest and allows the body to flush out remains and digestive left overs which might cause illness and in some cases cancer.
Beta-Carotene is considered to be a great protector from cancer along with helping our eyes and skin remain healthy and lively.
The pumpkin seeds are full with antioxidants and with fibers and protein, all three are important to keep our body healthy and to help prevent cancer.
Antioxidants are extremely important in helping to body cells slow down aging effects and fight cancer as oxidants are among the prime causes for cell aging.
As pumpkins are cheap and are easy to come by, they serve as a great addition to any meal, boosting the nutrition value and adding some healthy supplements to your primary dish.
The pumpkin flesh can be made just as you would make a potato – as a puree or roasted in the oven. The flesh is good for eating when it’s soft enough to have a fork stuck into it.
As the pumpkin is a bit tasteless we recommend you add some spices to it to make it tasty. Pumpkins easily absorb other tastes (because of the high fiber) allowing you to flavour it nearly any way you like.
The pumpkin seeds are very tasty when roastedÂ and you can add some oil (preferably olive oil) and salt to make them into a snack. Peeling the seeds may require some practice but once you get the hang of it, the reward is well worth it
