In this segment of From A to Vegan videos, we talk about a variety of winter squashes and pumpkins available for consumption. Although considered a vegetable for cooking, these nutritional powerhouses are botanically fruits as they are the containers of the plant’s seed. ; You might only think pumpkins you carve a face out of for Halloween--but we’ll show you they are vitamin- and mineral-rich vegetables that can be substituted into a diet to replace other more traditional foods (like pasta sauce) or just delicious roasted in an oven on their own.
Founded in 2011, From A to Vegan strives to share perspectives about veganism in the 21st century. From food to fashion, leisure to sustainability, our goal is to provide noteworthy and useful information to anyone thinking about or currently leading a life free of animal products. We think it's important to present different points of view and challenge common misperceptions about people and practices that are considered vegan. We hope to open minds to the possibility of a sustainable way of life through alternative choice. In the process, we hope to learn things about ourselves as well.
