Aside from the cozy feel of pumpkin spiced treats, pumpkin has some amazing health benefits. Pumpkin is packed with fiber, beta-carotene, and lutein and zeaxanthin to support brain and eye health. Pumpkin fudge is a delectable way to collect all these benefits, along with collagen protein to support stronger hair, skin, and nails.

Note on ingredients: Except for coconut, all nuts are considered “suspect” on the Bulletproof Diet because of their high levels of omega-6 fats that can oxidize and contribute to inflammation. Nuts are also susceptible to mold and contain lectins, nutrient-sapping compounds that can be tough on your gut. Use nuts in moderation, or remove them from your diet and reintroduce in small amounts to test your sensitivity.
