Dr Oz: Pumpkin Keeps You Full
Dr. Oz said it was that time of year where everywhere you look there’s pumpkin. He was joined by a woman who called herself a pumpkin-aholic. Dr. Oz said a lot of the pumpkin treats have pumpkin flavoring not actual pumpkin. He wanted to share treats we can all make that have actual pumpkin, which means they’re better for us. He said pumpkins are full of fiber which help keep your full. He said canned pumpkin has even more fiber than real pumpkin because they pull the liquid out of it. You can mix canned pumpkin with oatmeal for a nutritious breakfast.
Dr Oz: Pumpkin Seeds Boost Immunity
He also said that pumpkin helps boost your immunity, and one of the best ways to get it is to slice the pumpkin, roast it for about a half hour, maybe add some cinnamon if you want, and eat it just like that.
He also wanted to talk about the pumpkin guts and seeds. He said it’s probably the most important part of the pumpkin when it comes to your mood and your sleep. You can take the seeds and throw them in the oven for a half hour, add pumpkin pie spice, and enjoy them as a snack. They contain tryptophan, which is the precursor to serotonin, which makes you feel better.
