Eat more pumpkin!! There is good reason to incorporate more pumpkin into your diet. Both the flesh and the seeds are nutritional superstars and boast a pretty impressive nutritional profile. Here are five health-boosting benefits of eating pumpkin and some easy ways to use this seasonal fruit.
Hummus is one of my all time favorite snacks - it's so creamy and delicious. And because it contains a nice balance of slowly digesting carbohydrates, fats, protein, and fiber - it is also super satisfying and won't send your blood sugar soaring.
I call this my accidental hummus because it was created purely on accident. I went to make one of my go-to southwest hummus recipes* but didn't have some of the required spices so I played around with what I did have. The result turned out to be such a hit with my girls that I thought I would share this kid-approved, healthy snack.
The bonus is that it is ridiculously easy and you can make it in about 5-10 minutes.
