Skinny Dessert

23 May

Feeling like eating something naughty but your cheat day is still a few days away? Have pumpkin. It is loaded with fiber to help you feel fuller. Also it has lots of vitamins/antioxidants & minerals which keep you healthy and looking gorgeous! Try this healthy, low-fat and easy to make recipe for dessert: 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin, sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg, topped with a teaspoon of Agave and a tablespoon of slivered almonds or chopped walnuts (kirstiealley.com)

What’s so special about pumpkin? It’s rich in antioxidants A and C and provides calcium & iron. Eating foods rich in antioxidants will help with collagen production which is needed to improve the skin’s appearance and with aging. Also vitamin C is necessary for creating carnitine which helps turn fat into fuel.
