Libby's Canned Pumpkin Review

Libbys Canned PumpkinAutumn is here, and along with all the great clothes, changing leaves, and fun festivities, comes great Fall flavors. What I get the urge to eat anything pumpkin! This flavor lends itself to many classic dishes, both sweet and savory, along with healthy and well ... some not so healthy eats (damn you pumpkin pie)! Still, most of these dishes couldn't be created if it wasn't for the wonderful Libby's Canned Pumpkin.

This stuff is awesome. Cooking your own pumpkin can be time consuming and tedious, so having ready-to-eat pumpkin in a can is a miracle in my book. It makes cooking anything with pumpkin faster and simpler. Plus, it is delicious and full of pure pumpkin flavor! Libby's says, "Our 100% Pure Pumpkin is exactly that - with no additives or preservatives. We wouldn't want anything to interfere with our unique, delicious pumpkin flavor." I wholeheartedly agree.

Each 1/2 cup serving of Libbys Canned Pumpkin has 40 calories, only 0.5 grams of total fa with no saturated fat, 5 mg of sodium, 2 grams of protein and 9 grams of carbohydrates which includes 20% of the RDA for fiber (5 grams) and 4 grams of sugar. There is also has 300% of your vitamin A requirement. Pumpkin is a nutritional powerhouse in my book!

Libby's Canned pumpkin is a staple in my house year round, but I seem to buy and use so much more of it in the fall season, plus, this stuff is inexpensive too. It is usually on sale, but when it isn't I usually only pay around $1.40 for a normal sized can (3.5 servings). Like I said before, pumpkin can be used in so many ways .I eaten straight from the can, which is something I do quite often and never feel guilty about; I add it to my favorite dish (oatmeal) and even to my protein shakes. It is also a must for baking healthier cakes and cookies. In my opinion, everything tastes better with a little pumpkin (okay, maybe not everything, but pretty close)!
