It's still Fall and if your home is like mine, you still have pumpkins around the house. Brenda Garcia joined us this week to discuss all the great ideas she has when it comes to eating pumpkin.

Like me, most people probably think of pumpkin pie when you do think about eating pumpkin, but Garcia encouraged listeners to move beyond that try mixing pumpkin in with mac and cheese. It will allow you to use less butter and according to Garcia, pumpkin is good for Vitamin C and A which helps your immune system which everyone seems to be wanting to do.

Garcia encouraged listeners to visit happyandnourished.com for more great recipes and ideas for pumpkin. That includes put some pumpkin in your cider and smoothies!

Last week, Garcia informed us that November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and encouraged those living with diabetes or those who have family members with diabetes to visit happyandnourished.com for videos explaining what is good to eat along with different tips and tricks for meals. Garcia said that normally, the dieticians would lead tours in stores but because of coronavirus, those tours have been paused.
