Peter, Peter Pumkin Eater!

Did you know that Pumpkins are not only good for decorating but also good for your heart?

According to the authors of Superfoods Healthstyle, canned or fresh, pumpkin is a superfood,. And this squash is especially good for your ticker because it's chock-full of carotenoids that are known to reduce heart disease risk.
Antioxidant ActionAnd that's not all, according to the book's authors, Steven G. Pratt, MD, and Kathy Matthews. Pumpkin is also a good source of potassium, magnesium, fiber, and antioxidant vitamins C and E. So don't think of this squash as merely a fall doorstep jazzer upper.
