It’s the month of October and everyone is ready for a little fall bliss!

For the next few weeks, pumpkins and pumpkin products are everywhere! I’ve been stocking up on canned pumpkin, because we use it in our household all the time to make delicious, gluten-free recipes.

During this beautiful season, my husband and I love waking up on slow mornings when the air is still crisp and making a batch of these amazing, paleo pancakes. They are soft and fluffy and you won’t miss white flour for a second when you are eating them!

Pumpkin Health Benefits

Pumpkins are popular this time of year, but did you also know that they have some awesome health benefits?

Pumpkins are a rich source of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and some minerals. They are one of the best sources of vitamin A (one serving gives you 246% of your daily need!). Vitamin A is important for eyesight, skin health and prevention of certain cancers and disease.  

They are low-calorie and a great addition to your diet if you are working on weight management, because they add bulk to recipes without adding calories.

Pumpkins are also a great post-workout snack as they deliver a hefty dose of potassium, which helps to restore the body’s electrolytes after a tough workout.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
