Pumpkins are FUELED with Fiber, Potassium, Selenium, Vitamin A, Beta Carotene, Alpha-Carotene, Beta-Cryptoxanthin, Lutein, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Mono Unsaturated Fatty Acids, and Phytosterols. Many studies, long term and short term have shown beneficial reduction in Cancer, Diabetes, Hypertension and Asthma when eating a properly planned Whole Foods meal planning with Pumpkin added in! What a great way to incorporate this HEALING FOOD!

Carrots are excellent grounding vegetables, being excellent sources of Carotenes, Vitamin A, Fiber and Potassium as Pumpkins are, additionally, Carrots are loaded with Manganese, Niacin, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C! Take a bite of that…mmmm! Carrots, like Pumpkin, reduce Heart Disease, Cancer, Diabetes, Emphysema and protects vision, protecting against macular degeneration and cataracts!

Cinnamon also has Manganese, Iron, Calcium, Fiber and are filled with Antioxidants! While you sip on your juice, or even enjoy a glass of Cinnamon tea, know that Cinnamon reduces Arthritis, Diabetes, helps your body maintain health Blood Pressure and keeps your Heart Healthy.

Sweet Potatoes, mmm, what a heavenly delicious and powerful plant that improves cognitive functioning, have amazing cancer fighting properties, lowers the risks for cancer through the Beta Carotene that are filled with every Sweet Potato and Yam you eat as well as improving pancreatic cell function and improves insulin resistance! Anthropologists have found Sweet Potato remains in South American Community Caves dating back millions of years ago…wow! Amazing!

Inspirational Sweet Potato, a complete source of Vitamin A, Beta Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Manganese, Potassium, Fiber, Lycopene, and Anthocyanin’s!
