Safely light pumpkins


Pumpkins are Nutritious

Many pumpkin recipes are sky high in cholesterol. The pumpkin is not the culprit. The reason for the high cholesterol, is that eggs  (sometimes several) and other high cholesterol ingredients, are included.. Try substituting with a cholesterol free substitute ,or reduce the number or size of eggs you use.

On a low salt diet? Use reduced salt or use less salt than the recipe states.

As for pumpkins themselves, they are just plain good for you. They are low in fat, low in calories, and full of vitamins.
