Pumpkin



     Let it be known, Pumpkins are not just a means to scare little kids on Halloween....although some of those carvings can be pretty terrifying.  Have you ever realized that Pumpkin is the most widely consumed food that is also used in decoration and recreation!?  (I mean, would you ever dream of setting a Turkey on the front porch to spook visitors on Thanksgiving....didn't think so...and if you do, you need to seek medical attention immediately.)
     One of the most popular crops in the United States, 1.5 billion (yes, billion) Pumpkins are produced each year.  And ironically, if you think about it, they are mostly only used in the last quarter of the year, September is the warm up to October madness.  Not only an excellent source of Vitamin A and Beta-Carotene, it is calorie friendly and a wonderful option for Breads, Soups, Pies, Muffins, Waffles, French Toast, Pancakes, Latte's, Oatmeal, Pasta, Hummus, Chili, Cupcakes and Cookies.  The possibilities are endless when it comes to Pumpkin, the only question is, what will you create during the last 3 months of the year!?  PS  Thank you to the "guy" who created canned Pumpkin...#lifemadeeasier

Here are a few of my favorites, and for more than 60 other options, type Pumpkin in the search bar of my blog and spend the entire day perusing all things Pumpkin!

  1. I know some extremely fit people they do a full body workouts every time they
    exercise. Are this really harmful ? So they do 1 or 2 exercises of each body part
    in one session. Toronto Personal Trainer

    1. While I can’t label myself an expert, the biggest key is to allow 1-2 day’s rest between working a muscle again. Other than that, find the routine you enjoy and will most likely stick with!
