I had a special request from my lovely preceptor at my clinical site; something Pumpkin!!! Hmmmm.....Its winter, but not a problem, I am a trained chef and even off season baking is manegable. Plus, ITS NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH!!! So what is more nutritious than pumpkin, sugar and spices?? I added a bit of protein powder for that reason, and almonds too! Now the muscle man dietitian at my site will be pleased as well!!
