Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats with Caramel

Did you know that pumpkin has many health benefits. Pumpkins are one seriously power-packed vegetable! Of course oatmeal and greek yogurt have fantastic health benefits as well. Let’s check out a few:

Health Benefits of Pumpkin

  • Pumpkin is in high beta-carotene and Vitamin A, which gives it its unique orange color and is essential for eye health.
  • Naturally high in fiber, Pumpkin may help you lose weight by keeping you full longer.
  • Pumpkin seeds contain plant-based chemicals called phytosterols which have been shown to reduce cholesterol, lower your chance for heart diseases, and prevent cancer.
  • During the fall season take advantage of pumpkin containing more potassium than bananas by adding it to a post-workout smoothie.
  • Pumpkin contains high levels of zinc and both vitamins A and C, which are highly important in protecting your skin.

Health Benefits of Oatmeal

  • Oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. These fibers can help lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar. The insoluble fiber helps provide a “moving” experience by curtailing constipation and improving intestinal health.
  • A variety of antioxidants known as avenanthramides are found exclusively in oats. They may provide protection against coronary heart disease, and colon cancer. They also may play a role in controlling blood pressure.
  • Nutrient-rich oatmeal contains thiamine, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, selenium, and iron.

Health Benefits of Greek Yogurt

  • Greek yogurt is a great way to boost your protein levels while avoiding heavy foods like meats.
  • Greek yogurt is packed with probiotics. These normally live in your intestines, and having good microorganisms in your intestines helps keep you healthy.
  • Greek yogurt is chock full of iodine. Iodine is important for proper thyroid function, and the thyroid is essential for healthy metabolism.
  • Packed with calcium, Greek yogurt is good for your bones. Incorporating more calcium into your diet can partially limit fat production in the body as well.
