It’s that that pumpkin-flavoured-everything time of year again. Whether it’s in your favourite Starbucks coffee, your Bailey’s booze, or even your Lindor chocolate – thanks to our American cousins, you just can’t escape it! But seriously, let’s talk about pumpkins. Whilst we recommend that you only have a pumpkin flavoured treat every so often, this spooky seasonal veg is actually very healthy.

Do you ever go for a banana before a workout? You do it because banana has an excellent level of potassium which will help your cells retain fluid balance, helping to prevent cramping – it’s also a great source of nutrients. What you might not know is that a cup of cooked pumpkin has 564 milligrams of potassium, a substantial amount more than a banana’s 422! For a more decadent Saturday morning breakfast, try these pumpkin pancakes with salted pecan butterscotch.
