Thanksgiving and pumpkins – a perfect match when it comes to food. Pumpkin is a healthy Paleo food with a carbohydrate density of 5.2%. It also is an exceptional source for beta-carotene and a good source for fiber and other nutrients.
I have published some great recipes with pumpkins as the main ingredient. I tweaked traditional recipes to make them Paleo and to fit my taste. Try them, and let me know what you think:
The first is bread that is really dessert. If you want to make it even more luscious, try spreading my Avocado Chocolate Pudding on it as an icing. Yum!
Next is totally unique. You will never guess what I hid in this healthy smoothie.
The last is actually two recipes that I published together: a stuffing and a dessert. The stuffing doesn’t have pumpkin, but the dessert is unmistakably pumpkin.
Be thankful for everything life has given you.
