It's that time of season again. We're carving pumpkins, but this year I don't want you to throw out all that great goodness -- the seeds. Also known as pepitas, pumpkin seeds are a powerhouse of nutrients as they are high in magnesium and other minerals like iron, zinc and copper. They are high in antioxidants, beneficial fats, helps to control blood sugar, improve the immune system and may even help to improve sperm quality.
What you need:
2 Cups Pumpkin Seeds
3 Teaspoons Olive Oil
What you need to do:
Clean seeds. Toss with olive oil and spices, adding as many spices as you prefer. Spread on a baking sheet in one single layer of seeds, not overlapping.
