Featured SuperFood: Pumpkin Seeds

Save those pumpkin seeds everyone! Those little green seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition, hiding right there in your pile of pumpkin guts next to your carved pumpkin! Pumpkin seeds are a great source of essential fatty acids that can help with inflammation, heart health and hormone production. They contain more iron than liver by weight, and are a popular treatment for prostate problems, parasites, and even hair loss! A handful a day can help keep the medicine away! For a tasty, medication prevention snack toast them in the oven with some sea salt and cayenne pepper at 300°F for 35 minutes, peel (or don’t peel), eat and enjoy!
