Great Stuff!

There's loads of great stuff out there to enhance your physical and spiritual health. Every two weeks, All Spirit Fitness brings you something we've found useful. Sometimes it's a brand new fitness tool, sometimes it's an everyday item that you can find at the store. Whatever it is, rest assured that if it's on this page, we think it's great!

At this time of year, choosing pumpkin as Great Stuff is a no brainer. Like the other orange-colored vegetables, pumpkin is a great source of beta carotene - a half cup cooked supplies all your daily requirements. And a full cup of the stuff is only 49 calories. That's why pumpkin pie is less fattening than most holiday desserts (providing you go light on the whipped cream) - it's the sugar, milk and pie shell that add most of the calories. People generally use canned pumpkin for their recipes - cooking fresh pumpkin is rather time and work-intensive. But when you carve that Halloween Jack-O-Lantern, do reserve the seeds - they're delicious roasted, along with being a good source of fiber, iron, zinc and vitamins B and E (sometimes you'll find pumpkin seeds packaged at the store as pepitas). For those who are health conscious, pumpkin is one of the truly wonderful things that you'll find in abundance during the holidays.

Here are some pumpkin recipes, including roasted pumpkin seeds and traditional pumpkin pie - the pumpkin nut bread and pumpkin soup are also highly recommended.
