Don't be scared of all those Butterfingers and Juju Bees tempting your this Halloween season. Try using your crafty skills with a pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo), a relative of the squash plant.
Pumpkins are rich in vitamin A, fiber, magnesium, zinc, and potassium. The seeds are rich in protein and plant based fatty acids. The fruit pulp contains L tryptophan, a chemical compound that is noted to trigger feelings of well being that aid depression in a natural way.
