It´s been a while since I haven´t posted, which does not mean that I do not keep cooking and making desserts, the issue is that I haven´t time to do it, I have a lot of compromises at work and then at the house, I wish I could write a post day by day.

But I insist to do it, I really want to be by your side and contribute even a little bit with my recipes and my comments about the nutrients inside it, and how to be healthy.

Pumpkin has real nutritional benefits to us, is a nutrient-dense food that can help lose weight, high in antioxidants (beta-cryptoxanthin, beta-carotene and alpha-carotene) they have an important role neutralizing free radicals that can reduce the risk of chronic diseases, including heart and cancer, rich in beta-carotene that our body turns into vitamin A, has vitamin C, B2, E,  manganese, potassium, iron, copper, potassium, fiber to low the blood sugar and and it makes you feel full for longer, carbs, protein, lutein and zeaxanthin to protect the eyesight and macular degeneration, and is low in calories, also has lesser amounts of others B vitamins, phosphorus, folate, zinc, fat, and magnesium,   Can boost the immune system and increase the white blood cell production, contributes to have stronger bones and reduce fatigue. All these vitamins and minerals grant to have healthy skin, rising the collagen production, and protect it against UV rays. 








These muffins are awesome, very savory and moist, really they have a good texture, packed with protein and a bunch of vitamins, minerals, enriched with coconut and almond flour, turmeric, healthy fats, pumpkin, and butternut squash, could be my next to go recipe for breakfast,or dessert,  you can do it as a bread as well, I did not want them too sweet, so feel free to add more dates or your preferred sweetener.

You can replace the pumpkin for the butternut squash or vice versa, it´s up to you.
