It’s really not fair to other foods that pumpkin seeds taste so darned good. Because who’d ever guess that healthy perfection could come in such a humble form? Never mind the fantastic flavor; the health benefits of pumpkin seeds may just be the best kept secret in the culinary universe.
Dietitians agree: pumpkin seeds are a super-food, one of the best natural foods you can eat. Just half a cup of raw or roasted pumpkin seeds provides 92% of your Recommended Daily Allowance of magnesium, an important mineral that’s lacking in most Americans’ diets. And 1/4 cup contains more than 20% of your daily iron requirement, plus significant amounts of several other minerals, including zinc. Talk about an energy boost!
Why stop now? Pumpkin seeds are absolutely loaded with protein, Vitamin A and dietary fiber. Believe it or not, snacking on pumpkin seeds is like taking a daily vitamin pill, because most of the B vitamins, plus C, D, E and K are well-represented. And they can also help reduce cholesterol and even prevent some forms of cancer. Good things to keep in mind as you explore the many fun ways to enjoy one of Nature’s “perfect” foods.
