HEALTHY LIVING: PUMPKIN SEEDS


Pumpkin SeedsHalloween is over but you might not have carved all of your beautiful, bountiful pumpkins. It’s not too late to derive some great, healthy “treats” from the belly of the big, orange orb.

Pumpkin seeds are a fun and healthy way to get a substantial dose of magnesium and dietary fiber. One cup of pumpkin seeds contains almost 200 percent of the US Recommended Dietary Allowance for magnesium. Now, you don’t want to eat a whole cup at a time (they’re high in fat, too) but one cup also contains 8 grams of fiber.

Raw pumpkin seeds are also high in vitamins K and E.

To reap the benefits without some of the downsides, sprinkle a few on a salad with your meal, and enjoy the crunch and fun addition to your food!
