Pumpkin is full of nutritional benefits
Did you know that pumpkin is a great low-calorie source of nutrients? In fact, 100g of it (that is a LOT of pumpkin) only contains 26 calories! Pumpkin is filled with tons of beneficial vitamins and nutrients, from antioxidants and fiber to Vitamins C and E. It’s also a fabulous source of potassium, copper, and calcium!
Vitamin A is also a HUGE component of pumpkin. In fact, it is one of the most Vitamin A-rich vegetables out there, with 50g providing nearly 125% of the RDI. This means that in addition to being a tasty treat, pumpkin is also benefiting your eyesight and skin!
What is my favorite part about pumpkin, though? The yummy, seasonal taste that it brings! There is something just so cozy about pumpkin foods and drinks!
Made with no added sugar, these muffins are keto-compliant and the perfect treat to add to your day. They are made with Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, my absolute favorite sugar substitute!
