A study published in The Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that men who consumed pumpkin on a regular basis had a decreased risk of developing prostate cancer. This recipe calls for canned pumpkin, which is typically found in the baking aisle. Look for canned pumpkin made with 100-percent pumpkin, and not pumpkin pie filling which is loaded with added sugar.
