HOLIDAYS: Healthy pumpkin recipes from around the web

There are thousands of new recipes posted online every day. We love trolling sites like Pinterest, Gojee, and Tastespotting as much as the next person, but we realize that can be a huge time drain. Just in time to get into the Halloween spirit, this week we’re featuring five savory and sweet pumpkin recipes. Turns out, pumpkin is much more than an edible candle-holder. This superfood squash is low in calories and fat and loaded with good stuff like vitamins, beta-carotene, and antioxidants.
Homemade Granola via The Daily MuseUse this super easy recipe to make your own crunchy granola (with way less sugar than the prepackaged stuff).
Roasted Pumpkin and Rocket Salad via Food on Paper
Pumpkin is fresh and light when tossed with feta cheese, pine nuts, and spicy rocket (aka arugula for us Americans).
Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream via Dashing DishIt’s like dessert and a PowerBar all in one! This fall-flavored ice cream recipe is loaded with protein, thanks to low-fat Greek yogurt and cottage cheese.
