Published on: 10/31/18At this time of the year, if we're not carving them to make spooky lanterns for Halloween, we're mashing them to make pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving. The winter holidays are just around the corner, autumn is in full swing and as harvest time draws to a close, most of us are already preparing and thinking of ideas for CBD edibles for the holiday season. There are so many CBD recipes you can try with the spoils of the harvest crops and pumpkins are just some of the best.
Pumpkins are known as one of the most versatile autumn vegetables, but it's a little-known fact that they are in fact actually a fruit! as they bear seeds.
Not only can they be used to make great savory dishes, but they also double up as a tasty dessert ingredient too. They are a great source of nutrition, rich in beta-carotene, and carotenoid that your body uses to create vitamin A. They also contain vitamin C, B12 and E, and are not to mention low in fat and have a delicious natural buttery sweet flavor.
They are jam-packed full of immune-boosting vitamins, so are a great addition to your diet at this time of the year when colds and flus are on the increase. Its high anti-oxidant and mineral content may also protect your cells against damage by free radicals, which can potentially aid in cancer prevention.
