Pumpkin seeds, also called “pepitas,” are native to Central and South America and grow in pumpkins. They are super healthy and rich in iron, vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, omega-6 fatty acids, fiber and protein. A 28-gram serving contains 4.2 mg of iron, which is 23 percent of the RDI.
Did you know that a handful of pumpkin seeds a day helps with weight loss? Research shows that they have a positive effect on prostate and bladder health, heart health, lower blood sugar levels and work well for falling asleep.
In order to eat the seeds, the skin of the seeds is first removed. They are delicious in yogurt, salads, bread, pastries or to eat out of hand.
