The nice thing about the super foods book is that there are Super Foods - like pumpkin and their sidekicks - orange pepper, sweet potato, butternut squash, carrots, etc (he doesn't list mango, but I think it should be listed!). I have had no trouble getting the "pumpkin" super foods by just eating sidekicks.

I eat carrots nearly everyday, add sliced orange peppers to salads and stir fries and adore baked sweet potatoes. I also dice sweet potatoes, nuke them a bit and add them to stir fries or my black bean burritos. Butternut squash is also good in stir fries. I also have a great recipe for white bean, kale and roasted vegetable soup (including butternut squash) - PM me if you want the recipe! Tonight, I had some roasted butternut squash mixed with a tbs of pumpkin butter, it was fabulous.

I have used canned pumpkin (not pie filling) mixed with various things (cinnamon or a little maple syrup) and heated up as a treat.
