5 Ways to Add Pumpkin Seeds to Your Diet

This article, entitled "5 Ways to Add Pumpkin Seeds to Your Diet," comes from partner site Fat Fighter TV.

Not only do I have a thing for pumpkin foods and drinks, I also adore the seeds. They’re perfect for snacking or using in recipes, and they are packed with nutrients. So after a fun night of carving like the one you see in this picture, hang on to those precious pepitas.

Pumpkin seeds are a good source of protein, magnesium and zinc. I usually just eat them straight from the shells. But like sunflower seeds, they give lots of other foods a good crunch and a nice, nutty flavor. Try these ideas to take advantage of their nutrients while pumpkins are still in season.

  • Add pumpkin seeds to your granola or trail mix.

  • Sprinkle them on your soups and salads.

  • Mix them in your burgers – beef, turkey, or veggie.

  • Add them to your oatmeal or cold cereal.

  • Toss them on your yogurt.

What are some other ways you enjoy pumpkin seeds?
