It was difficult to calculate the nutrition value from the pie pumpkin, so I used the count for 1 cup pureed canned pumpkin. Any suggestions to something more correct is welcomed.

I made the navy beans from scratch and added extra chicken broth and water to cook them. I used the leftover liquid from the beans instead of broth.
