Sometimes, you don’t think about adding some seeds in our diet, in salad and so on. I thought that fall is a good season to pumpkin seeds in our dishes because it is the harvest time to use them.

The great benefits:

1. Pumpkin seeds are rich in iron. Just ¼ of a cup is equivalent to 16% of your daily needs.

2. Raw, green pumpkin seeds have a high amount of natural chlorophyll which alkalizes and naturally cleanses the body.

3. Pumpkin seeds are also rich in fibre that can help regulate blood sugar and improve insulin regulation.

4. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of soy-free protein for those that have a soy allergy.

5. Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of protein and amino acids particularly tryptophan, the amino acid that enhances serotonin production in the body.

6. Pumpkin seeds contain 23% of your daily zinc needs in just ¼ cup serving. Zinc helps carbohydrate metabolism in the body, hormone production, and even improves immune health and even your skin, hair, and nails.

7. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids and mono-unsaturated fats that protect your heart, prevent inflammation and help manage your weight.

8. Pumpkin seeds are also a rich source of magnesium

To conclude, it is good to add different seeds in your salads such as sunflower, chia, pumpkin and vegetarian dishes to add variety to your daily meals and try something new.

Have a wonderful week,
