Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Curry

October is finally here! That means it’s pumpkin season, folks. Oh, the versatility of pumpkin. They’re amazing whether you dress them up savory or sweet, and they are just so adorable it’s almost a shame you want to eat them so bad. The thing is, pumpkins are very good for you, so you have to eat them; you really do. Pumpkins are favorites of nutritionists and weight loss gurus because they are low calorie and full of fiber, antioxidants, minerals like copper, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus, and vitamins A, C, and E. If you want a little more pumpkin in your life this fall, keep an eye out for the recipes we’re posting this month. Here’s one we hope you love as much as we do.
