Pumpkin & Seafood: The Pairing of Two Superfoods

The symbol of the sea and the icon of autumn might seem like an unlikely pair, but seafood and pumpkin are a complimentary superfood duo. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin C and fiber, while seafood is a source of B vitamins, vitamin D, and healthful omega-3 fats. And they’re both available in convenient forms – frozen seafood and canned pumpkin – that are just as healthful as fresh, so you can serve them throughout the fall and beyond.
