In mid-autumn, there is usually no problem buying one or more pumpkins. This was reported by a well-known nutritionist and candidate in medical sciences Yulia Chekhonina.
“If we are talking about those who control their body weight, this product should be in their diet without fail because it is low in calories. Pumpkin has the calorie content of vegetables, it will perfectly complement, for example, porridge, baked goods, and meat dishes and reduce the calorie content of your favorite dishes,” she said.
Chekhonina says that pumpkins should definitely be added to the diet of those people who are watching their figures.
“Pumpkin is rich in dietary fiber. It has a high content of carotenoids, precursors of vitamin A, about 30% of the recommended daily intake of 100 grams. Pumpkin is rich in silicon, it contains almost 100% of the daily intake (of this element – Glavred) in 100 grams. This is an element that is necessary for the strength of our bones, joints, and ligaments,” she said.
