Ingredients in Pumpkin Fries

It’s shockingly easy to make a recipe for roasted pumpkin low in calories, carbs, and sugar!

Pumpkins are naturally all 3 (low calorie, low carb, low sugar) but most recipes pack the squash full of sugar, fat and excess calories.

These tips will help you make yummy, low calorie savory fresh pumpkin recipes that are super healthy, and super yummy!

Low Calorie Tips for Pumpkin Side Dishes Recipes:

  • Olive oil spray… Instead of soaking the pumpkin fries in olive oil, lightly spray them with it. This will save you calories AND fat!
  • Parchment Paper... When you use parchment paper, you don’t need as much oil (because the pumpkin fries won’t stick to the baking sheet) so you can save even more calories and fat! Best of all… parchment paper makes clean up so much easier!
  • Skip the Sugar… Try a savory dish instead! This garlic coated recipe for cooked pumpkin is fantastic as a weeknight side dish, and fancy enough for holiday gatherings!
