Did you know pumpkin is one of those vegetables you can use in a variety of recipes? Well you can! You can make several recipes that are sweet or savory. I like using pumpkin puree in these recipes —>Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, Chicken and Pumpkin Soup and Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Pumpkin is a superfood. Pumpkin adds extra fiber and Vitamin A to recipes. It’s packed with Beta Carotene. It can be used to replace the fat in some recipes and cut the amount of sodium per serving in others. When used as a replacement for butter, eggs or oil it can also reduce calories. It can be incorporated in breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and beverages – all that taste great.
We hope you enjoy this Paleo Grilled Chicken Breast. It is perfect for dinner on a fall evening. You are sure to fall in love with it once you try it. Full of flavor but without any gluten.
