Pumpkin has a low glycemic load, which basically means that the carbohydrates in it are good for you and keep you full for longer. It’s full of fiber and there is new research suggesting that pumpkin has anti-diabetic properties.

It’s low in calories and full of useful vitamins and minerals: one of nature’s healthy super foods!

So getting some pumpkin into your day first thing in the morning has to be a good thing. Start the day off right is what I always say!
