Have two left feet when it comes to soccer, while the kid next door is a natural? There may be a gene for that. But don’t chalk it all up to biology. Good old-fashioned practice could also help make the cut.
The Greatist Table: 5 Healthy Pumpkin Recipes from Around the Web
There are thousands of new recipes posted online every day. We love trolling sites like Pinterest, Gojee, and Tastespotting as much as the next person, but we realize that can be a huge time drain. Just in time to get into the Halloween spirit, this week we're featuring five savory and sweet pumpkin recipes. Turns out, pumpkin is much more than an edible candle-holder. This superfood squash is low in calories and fat and loaded with good stuff like vitamins, beta-carotene, and antioxidants.
