Wellness Wednesday: Benefits of pumpkin

Weekly tips to bring island-inspired wellness into your everyday life from Rosalie Bay Resort wellness resort coordinator Laura Lund.

Did you know that just one cup of pumpkin has only 49 calories? While it is not only delicious, pumpkin is loaded with nutrients that will help prevent cancer, improve your skin and more.

Pumpkin is abundant in:

  • Potassium (helps prevent cardiovascular disease and hypertension)
  • Magnesium (important in nervous system, muscle, and bone health)
  • Zinc (improves bone health and the immune system)
  • Beta-carotene (anti-oxidant, good for fighting inflammation)
  • Fiber
  • Vitamins A & C

At Rosalie Bay Resort you can enjoy a pumpkin smoothie, or our delicious pumpkin soup all year long to receive these nutritional benefits.

Treat your body right this Thanksgiving and try our Pumpkin Pie smoothie at home.
