Pumpkin Pepitas Seeds

are the green kernels from pumpkin seeds. The seeds are removed from the pumpkin, then dried so that they are ready to eat.

They are a great source of protein iron, calcium, zinc and magnesium, Magnesium helps your body neutralize metabolic acids, absorb calcium, additionally Pepitas contain copper, B vitamins, vitamin K and vitamin E. They also contain L-tryptophan, which promotes healthy sleeping patterns and lowers depression. High zinc levels make them a natural protector against osteoporosis.

They are also the most alkaline-forming seed which helps counter-act the many alkaline foods in everyday diets.

Pepitas are yummy by themselves or in a trail mix, added to bread mixes, cereal or salads.

They are super easy to find and are very inexpensive.

My favourite use for Pepitas are adding to salads and my chia puddings, what’s yours?Pumpkin Pepitas Seeds
