Pumpkin season is here!

Some see only a pumpkin, but others see a carriage fit for a princess.

— Disney

Pumpkin season is finally here. Yeaaaah! If you have a look at this rounded and really likeable fruit (yes fruit…more precisely winter squash) you immediately think about the princess’s pumpkin carriage. No wonder that the word “pumpkin” showed up for the first time in the fairy tale Cinderella. Pumpkins have a bunch of surprising health benefits. A cup of cubed pumpkin contains almost twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, which promotes good vision. It helps maintain healthy skin, teeth and bones and lowers blood pressure. Let’s see some yummy recipes. 🙂
