I got a chuckle out of this:

These moon high dreams frequently lead to quinoa. Yes, that poor little misunderstood grain seed. I have it on good authority quinoa has self esteem issues. Everyone raves about it’s high protein, not-grain, greatness. Then on first taste, the bitterness, grassiness, and the-pronunciation-is-far-from-how-the-word-looksness is apparent. Out goes quinoa.

This sounds a lot like Jim!

I have never been a fan of cooking first thing in the morning or making any breakfast that involves a lot of prep. And some days I am especially happy to have my breakfast already waiting in the fridge.

Here are some facts about pumpkins!

1. Their flesh is super nutritious.

Pumpkins are known for providing a megadose of Vitamin A and beta-carotene, which help keep our immune system strong, our skin and teeth healthy and our eyesight good, particularly in low-light. They’re also a strong source of potassium, which is helpful in balancing ourelectrolytes after a heavy workout, keeping us hydrated, helping our muscles function their best, lowering blood pressure and supporting healthy digestion.

2. They’re not a one-size-fits-all kinda squash.

The weight of a pumpkin can actually range from less than a pound to over 2,000 pounds! In fact, the Guinness Book of World Records reports the heaviest pumpkin weighed in at 2,032 pounds in October, 2013. Imagine lugging 2,000 pounds home from the pickin’ patch.

3. There’s hardly a part of them that can be wasted.

With their flowers being edible, their seeds roastable and their flesh puree-able, it seems the only part of the pumpkin that we CAN’T consume is their stem.

Enjoy!
