Halloween has come and gone and you’re probably wondering what to do whit Halloween pumpkins. Whatever you decide to do with your pumpkins, please remember to reduce food waste. Don’t throw your pumpkins in the trash. Pumpkins should usually last for a few more weeks after Halloween, so bring on all the pumpkin-filled recipes.

If you’re wondering why on earth I using pureed pumpkin in my recipes instead of raw pumpkin, the answer is pretty simple. I find pumpkin along with certain other squashes hard to digest in they raw form. Also, pumpkin has a range of fantastic health benefits, including being one of the best-known sources of beta-carotene. For your body absorb beta-carotene is not an easy task. Cooking pumpkin help release the beta carotene, making this nutrient more available to your body to absorb. Whether you prefer raw or cooked, be sure to include healthy fat in the same meal to assist the nutrient absorption. Beta-carotene is fat-soluble.
