Part of the fun of carving a pumpkin is toasting and seasoning the seeds. Although many enjoy pumpkin seeds as part of an autumn or Halloween tradition, the nutritious seeds can be enjoyed all year.
Pumpkin seeds are enjoyable raw or toasted. You can chew the entire seed whole, or you can remove the outer casing. Once the outer casing is removed, the inner portion of the seed is called a pepita. Raw seeds have a slightly grassy flavor while roasted seeds taste more like roasted nuts.
The health benefits associated with including pumpkin seeds in your diet are numerous. In addition to being protein-rich, the seeds from pumpkins are believed to benefit prostate and bladder health. They are one of the best sources of magnesium, which is often missing from Western diets. Magnesium supports more than 600 chemical reactions in the body. Blood pressure, overall heart health, bone health, and blood sugar are just a few components and functions magnesium supports.
