Recipe: Low-Fat Pumpkin Pie

low-fat pumpkin pie

Orange-colored fruits and vegetables, including pumpkin, are an excellent source of beta carotene. In our bodies, beta carotene is either converted to vitamin A or into an antioxidant. Vitamin A helps support a healthy immune system and healthy vision. As an antioxidant it will neutralize damaging free radicals.
