Ingredient Spotlight: Pumped Up for Pumpkins!

September 15, 2017

If you saw our recent article which shared our recipe for Chocolate Chip Coconut Pumpkin Bars, you may have been able to tell that we at Zest are pretty excited about fall and all the yummy foods that come along with it, especially pumpkin. The best part is that the star of the famed pumpkin spice latte is even better for you than you probably ever thought!

 

 

 

Pumpkin

● Boosts vision health

● Helps lower blood pressure

● High amounts of fiber, potassium and vitamin C

 

Pumpkin Seeds

● Contain heart healthy magnesium and zinc for immune support

● Great source of plant based Omega-3 fatty acids

 

Pumpkin is also an incredible source of beta-carotene which may reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer, help ease asthma symptoms and heart disease, and delay aging and body degeneration. Not bad for a veggie which you spent your childhood carving funny faces into. 

 

Get your fix of pumpkin at Zest right now! We are serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, Pumpkin Bread, and more yummy treats which are sure to satisfy your craving for the fall favorite without all the excess sugar and gluten.
