Besides being great for Halloween fun, pumpkins make wonderful eating. Just one-half cup of canned pumpkin provides 4 grams of fiber, no fat or cholesterol, and only 50 calories. Pumpkin also has more beta-carotene per serving than any other commonly eaten food. Your body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A, and it may protect against heart disease and some cancers.
