In general, when choosing foods for your diet, you should give preference to seasonal vegetables, as they have the highest amount of nutrients. Pumpkin is recognized as a champion in the content of vitamin C, which is an important modulator of the immune system. The large amount of fiber in it makes it good for the stomach.

Pumpkin can be eaten as a separate dish or included in salads. It is especially tasty in hot dishes such as baked pumpkin and can also be used to make delicious porridge in the cold season.
