Squashes like pumpkins boast many health benefits, e.g. the bright orange color indicates carotenoid-rich phytonutrients, including the powerful antioxidant beta-carotene, needed by highly active organs like our brain and eyes, to quench continuous oxidation processes therein. Squashes are high in fiber and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals) as well, especially their seeds; science is actively discovering their other benefits, but don’t wait to partake of this food!
