Yummy Pumpkin Snacks Available this Fall

Read Post
The seasonal pumpkin latte and all the pumpkin inspired products (creamers, bagels, cheesecake, etc) are all around us. Trouble is these pumpkin products are not very healthy. Hill & Valley’s Pumpkin Spice Mini Cupcakes and Pumpkin Streusel Mini Muffins will not only satisfy your pumpkin cravings but, the added bonus, they are healthy!

Pumpkin, the main ingredient in both these mini snacks, is full of healthy stuff. Pop one of these mini snacks into your mouth after a hard workout, as pumpkin contains more potassium than a banana. Potassium can help restore the body’s balance of electrolytes after a heavy workout. Pumpkin is also heavy on Vitamin A & C, which helps keep your immune system at warp speed.

Lastly, these yummy mini muffins and cupcakes will fit into any meal plan, with only 125 calories or less and an average of 13 grams of carbohydrates per serving.

Mini Cupcakes pack Maximum Health Punch

If you are looking for a hassle free, mess free dessert or snack for the end of the summer pool parties, picnics, or family reunion, pick up Sugar Free Double Chocolate Mini Cupcakes by Hill & Valley. Not only are these mini cupcakes easy to pop into your mouth without getting any frosting on your fingertips --- but they are less than 15 grams carbohydrates! Other health benefits:

  • In a small Italian study, participants who ate a candy bar's worth of dark chocolate once a day for 15 days saw their potential for insulin resistance drop by nearly half. Flavonoids increase nitric oxide production, which helps control insulin sensitivity --- crucial in the fight to prevent diabetes.
  • A long-term study in Germany found that about a square of dark chocolate a day lowered blood pressure and reduced risk of heart attack and stroke by 39 percent. Most of the credit goes to flavonoids, antioxidant compounds that increase the flexibility of veins and arteries.
    • Researchers from Oxford University and Norway looked at chocolate's long-term effects on the brain by studying the diets of more than 2,000 people over age 70. They found that those who consumed flavanol-rich chocolate, wine, or tea scored significantly higher on cognitive tests than those who didn't.
