1. Prepare pumpkin three ways:stuffed, soup, or muffins!
Cut a large hole around the stem of the pumpkin and take out the seeds. Stuff the inside with pre-cooked whole grains mixed with chopped nuts, chopped dried fruit, water-sauteed onions, garlic, and mushrooms, and a heaping handful of greens. Close the "lid" and bake at 400 degrees for 1 and 1/2 hours.
