Cozy Fall Dinner Dishes with Pumpkin
Pumpkin and fall go hand-in-hand. There is nothing better than trying out a new and delicious pumpkin-forward recipe. Pumpkin recipes can go far beyond the typical pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte, and baked pumpkin oatmeal. Pumpkin is a versatile flavor that can be made both sweet and savory, so the possibilities for pumpkin dishes are truly endless.
Pumpkin is also an extremely healthy ingredient that is packed with minerals, vitamins, and fiber. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A and contains high levels of multiple antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect your body from harmful free radicals and can prevent a wide variety of cancers and diseases.
Pumpkin also contains many vitamins that boost your immune system as well. Vitamins A, C, and E all help boost immunity and fight off sickness, which is important going into the flu and cold season.
Furthermore, pumpkin has a high fiber content that keeps you full for long periods of time, but it lower in calories. This makes pumpkin great food to incorporate into a healthy diet, especially if you are looking to lose some weight this fall.
Since pumpkin has such a wide variety of health benefits, making sure to include pumpkin in your diet this fall is a no-brainer. In this post, we put together a list of some cozy fall dinner dishes with a pumpkin that is fun, unique, and delicious!
