Superfood Tip:Canned pumpkin

This is the time of year where some of us have half-used cans of pumpkin lingering in our refrigerators. Canned pumpkin offers a convenient boost of nutrition. Just half of a cup offers 4 grams fiber, 40 calories, 0.5 grams fat, and almost all your daily need of vitamin K.

It can be easy to incorporate into food such as smoothies, and can be used instead of butter, pancakes, sauces, curry type soups.
