Hey, Fit Foodies! Here are tasty tips for healthy fall feasts. Pumpkin wedges roasted to perfection. Crispy (potato-chip crunchy) kale chips. And the piece de resistance… Chef Anthony’s new recipe: Pickled Carrots and Apple Salad with Pomegranate Balsamic Dressing.
All season long, enjoy pumpkins a plenty because they’re a superb food – fiber-rich and packed with health-promoting nutrients like beta carotene and potassium. They’re also very low in calorie density. A full cup has just 30 calories.
Don’t go overboard with pumpkin seeds, however. They’re packed with calories. A small handful can easily tally up more than 200 calories. (And who eats just a small handful?)
And, of course, as a fit foodie you know that anytime you add pumpkin to a high-calorie-dense recipe like pumpkin muffins, the end result ceases to be healthy. It’s likely full of fatty butter or margarine, oil, sugar, and other artery-hurting, waistline-expanding ingredients.
Enjoy richly roasted but very-low-calorie pumpkin wedges (only about 35 calories per serving) with this recipe, perfect for just about anything, from a mid-day snack to a side dish star for Thanksgiving Dinner.
