Is Pumpkin Healthy? Nutrition & Health Benefits


While nothing can beat a pumpkin pie or, let’s be honest, a pumpkin spice latte, Davis says she wishes people would enjoy sliced pumpkin more; it can be eaten like any squash — sliced and roasted, grilled, or sautéed and added to your favorite fall salad, according to Davis. “Just sauté a few cubes with some olive oil or toss with your favorite sauce,” she says. “You can even mix some pumpkin puree into a little hummus to amp up the nutrients and fiber.” Other clever ways to use it: in waffles, oatmeal, overnight oats, brownies, stews, or added to veggie burgers. Pumpkin season, we love you!
