I️ love pumpkins just as much as the next basic babe, but PSL are just too sweet for me! (and filled with things you’d never want to put in your body anyway!) Here is a quick and easy recipe for some pumpkin spice goodness!
Did you know pumpkins have lots of vitamin A- essential for cell renewal & repair, keeps your skin glowing and an important immune booster? Clearly no coincidence that pumpkins are best at a time of the year people need an immune boost! 😜🙃
Also- those little seeds inside…. AMAZING nutritional perks! Copper (supports healthy skin, hair & nails!), Iron (strong hair & nails, necessary for red blood cell production & energy), Magnesium (calms nervous function & muscles), Phosphorus (supports strong teeth, bones & immune system and helps maintain electrolyte balance), & Zinc (fights inflammation & redness, collagen formation & tissue healing) .
