Can we do Thanksgiving in June?  True, all that rich food may not be a great idea as you’re getting ready to head to the pool, but we’re missing all that good pumpkin that goes with Thanksgiving!  It’s not just the pumpkin lattes, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin muffins (Healthy Dining’s director of nutrition Nicole makes some awesome little pumpkin chocolate chip muffins!); it’s all the health benefits of pumpkin, too.  Loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber, this vegetable can make a healthy addition to your diet any time of year for healthy skin, healthy eyes and a healthy weight.

Ah, pumpkin…
