OK – not my choice of words. I would use pumpkin goop, but whatever you choose to call it, here’s a handy and informative article I found online today.
Follow this link to find out what to do with all of that stuff inside the pumpkin – you know, the pulp, the seeds, etc. And, you’ll find out how really nutritious it is for you. Here’s a hint from little old me – every morning, I cook oatmeal. Now, this is not the handy dandy packaged stuff. Get the oats in the big containers, please! Cook according to your directions, and I always use milk! Then, when you remove it from the heating surface, stir in some brown sugar, cinnamon, and about three tablespoons of canned pumpkin which you can get all through the year in your grocery store. (Store the remainder of the pumpkin in a container in the refrigerator.) Voila! It’s as if you were having a slice of pumpkin pie every day! Yummy! And there is a giganto amount of Vitamin A in pumpkin. I have not had a cold or anything like it in many, many years – great antioxidant! I guarantee it is a healthy, tasty way to begin your day, and it is the sort of meal which sticks with you for hours. I don’t get hungry mid-morning. There are times when I even go way past the normal lunchtime, because I am busily creating, and my stomach isn’t telling me to eat! That’s a major accomplishment for me! Hope you find some useful tips from the article, and that you try out my breakfast suggestion! Enjoy!
