The leaves are starting to turn, and the weather is starting to cool. This is my favourite time of year, as hot, dusty summer days slowly transform into crisp, cool mornings and bright blue skies. What better time to bring you a new recipe roundup of gluten-free, allergy-friendly fall recipes featuring the classic fall flavours of pumpkin and warm, fragrant spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice?
Pumpkins are an excellent source of vitamin A, fiber, and potassium. Like other orange vegetables, pumpkins are also rich in the antioxidant beta-carotene that may help to prevent cancer. Preliminary studies have shown pumpkin to help reduce blood glucose levels, improve glucose tolerance, and even increase the amount of insulin the body produces!
With two school field trips planned to local pumpkin patches next week, we’re going to have lots of pumpkins to carve and to do some baking. This list of gluten-free pumpkin recipes is a good start!
