Holiday Pumpkin Pie

Why pick pumpkin: Pumpkin, like all orange foods (naturally orange, of course; this does not include Cheetos...), is a rich source of beta-carotene, which your body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A plays an important role in bone growth, reproduction, immune function, hormone synthesis and regulation, and, perhaps most notably, vision. One slice of our pumpkin pie provides 137% of the daily value of vitamin A. (The Dietary Guidelines for Americans suggest eating 2 cups per week of orange vegetables.)
