You can do all this with a pumpkin! | Feeling good in your skin challenge

A pumpkin is, of course, best known as a Halloween decoration. Nowadays you see more and more children hollowing out pumpkins and then turning them into a scary face, but a pumpkin isn’t just for Halloween.

In recent years, the vegetable has become increasingly popular in dishes. It contains few calories and has a sweet taste, but still ensures a stable blood sugar level. Often used for pumpkin soup, but there are many more options!


You can eat pumpkin alone as a vegetable with your meal, you can make a delicious pumpkin lasagna out of it, you can puree it or process the vegetable in a salad. Because of the sweet taste, you can also use it in sweet dishes, such as in a pie, cake or cheesecake.

Pumpkin can even be eaten for breakfast. You will find a delicious recipe in our first weekly menu of the Lekker in je vel challenge.
