Warm Roast Pumpkin and Hazelnut Hummus Salad RecipeCredit: Lisa Guy
Pumpkin has high levels of pro-vitamin A, an important vitamin for maintaining healthy eyesight and skin. Pumpkin also contains plenty of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are antioxidants with a protective effect against degenerative eye diseases like macular degeneration. Hummus is a wonderful source of protein and dietary fibre to help keep blood sugar levels balanced, and iron and B vitamins for energy production.
