Pumpkins are also high in fiber, which can help you feel full though out the day and can aid in weight loss. Pumpkins are loaded with beta-carotene, which has been shown to prevent certain kinds of cancer. Those same free-radical neutralizing carotenoids that help prevent cancer also help your skin looking radiant and healthy. Pumpkin is loaded with potassium, which helps restore’s the body’s electrolytes. So, eating pumpkin after a workout is great for recovery!

I like to make this shake in the morning to get me started, but it works great as a recovery snack as well.
