Top 10 Superfoods


Pumpkin is good for a lot more than carving jack-o’-lanterns on Halloween—it’s loaded with nutrients that will help your heart, bones, eyes and skin. Beta-carotene and potassium are the two standouts here: Beta-carotene is an antioxidant that helps rejuvenate skin, protect your vision, and may even reduce risk of arthritis. Potassium is a mineral involved in lowering blood pressure and maintaining healthy bones. Use fresh or canned (no-sugar-added) pumpkin in stews, soups, pies, or pureed as a side dish—or add a scoop to some nonfat vanilla yogurt for a yummy snack.
