Food ideas such as pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin homemade bread. Now, there are two schools of thought when it comes to pumpkin bread. It's nice when the weather cools down, and you can turn on the oven and stove again without worrying about heating up the house.

It's the time of the year when you start to see food ideas like pumpkin homemade bread, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin risotto, pumpkin pie, pumpkin beer and more. Some of the healthy perks of consuming pumpkin include heart health, vision and keeping waistlines in check, as long as you take it easy on eating too much pie loaded up with sugar. Consuming pumpkin will help to make you feel fuller. That is because pumpkin seeds have about 1.7 grams of dietary fiber per ounce, while mashed pumpkin only 50 calories per cup and about 3 grams of fiber. It's the fiber that helps keep you fuller longer, which keeps your appetite at bay so that you will eat less overall. Consuming pumpkin will also help to boost your vision. A cup of cubed pumpkin contains almost twice of the daily recommended intake of vitamin A; this helps to promote good vision, especially in dim light. It has also been found that vitamin A helps to slow the decline of retinal function in those with retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease that can lead to blindness. And Vitamin A also helps form and maintain healthy skin, teeth and bones.

Another benefit of consuming pumpkin is that it may help you sleep better. Consuming food ideas that contain pumpkin or pumpkin seeds may help you sleep better. This is because pumpkin seeds are rich in tryptophan, which is the amino acid that contributes to post-Thanksgiving dinner sleepiness. Tryptophan is also responsible for helping your body make serotonin, which is the feel-good neurotransmitter that helps you feel relaxed and unwind. Not only do pumpkin seeds help to promote better sleep, the serotonin will help to improve your mood.
