Lisa’s Gluten-free Pumpkin Loaf

Gluten-free Pumpkin Loaf

The bright orange colour of pumpkin indicates its high levels of beta-carotene, needed to support good eye health and vision, and boost immune function and skin health. Pumpkins also pack a fibrous punch, which helps keep you regular and offers protection from bowel cancer and high cholesterol. Almonds are full of protein to help build and repair the body, along with dietary fibre, zinc and calcium. Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory spice that has been found to be useful for relieving inflammation in the body, making it beneficial for arthritis sufferers.
