Pumpkins are part of the winter squash family. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, pumpkin is incredibly healthy. What's more, its low-calorie content makes it a weight-loss-friendly food. Its nutrients and antioxidants may boost your immune system, protect your eyesight, lower your risk of certain cancers and promote heart and skin health. Organic pumpkins use only naturally occurring chemicals and pest treatments during the growing process, making them the better choice if you plan to use pumpkins in cooking and baking applications. Pumpkins have become symbols of prosperity, growth, and abundance because it can find its way to grow large and bulge amongst sparse soil and share nutrients along a connected vine that reaches into the ground to replenish itself. If you have not, try grilling them! You will thank us later.
