Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkins are pretty amazing. You can serve them savory or sweet. One of their best (and often overlooked) attributes is their seeds! They’re super easy to prepare and make a seriously delicious snack.
Besides tasting great, they’re also loaded with nutrition. They’re high in protein, (take note, vegetarians!) are an excellent source of magnesium, zinc and calcium plus, lots of healthy fats. It would be a shame to throw all that good stuff away!
