#SkinnyThursday: PUMPKIN

Its skinny Thursday and the Skinny magician for the day is PUMPKIN.

Pumpkin is one of the top sources of Beta Carotene. The body converts Beta Carotene to Vitamin A. Half cup of cooked pumpkin packs nearly 400% of the body’s daily need for vitamin A. Vitamin A is responsible for the growth of the body skin cells. Increased intake of vitamin A helps to keep the skin soft, smooth and wrinkle free.

Today’s green treat is all in a bowl of pumpkin salad.

Give your body a green treat today.
