If you’re looking for a hearty snack that’s high in nutrients, pumpkin seeds are a great choice.
Pumpkin seeds are used in cuisines throughout the world, and are especially popular in Latin America.
They’re rich in minerals including phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, iron and copper. They’re loaded with zinc, and are a good source of vitamin E and B vitamins.
They have anti-inflammatory properties and are a good source of protein.
And if that weren’t enough, pumpkin seeds are used in some cultures to treat tapeworms and other parasites.
