Health.com: 30 Foods Under 40 Calories

Pumpkin

Calories: 30 per cup

This low-calorie squash is rich in potassium and loaded with beta-carotene (a powerful antioxidant), and its natural sweetness brings flavor to baked goods without any added guilt. It's a great source of vitamins A, C, and E, and packs potassium (great for lowering blood pressure) and copper.

Eating pumpkin may even be good for diabetes; studies found two compounds in this vegetable, trigonelline and nicotinic acid, improved glucose tolerance in rats.
