Diet Tip

HELLO ALL! Fall has arrived! Pumpkin seeds are in season, and they can provide a healthy snack option. a half cup of pumpkin seeds contains about 160 calories packing in 8 grams of protein, and 13 grams of the heart healthy fats. They also provide a significant amount of minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, and manganese. The tasty seeds are also linked to help reducing blood cholesterol levels. Yes, The shells are edible! You can buy these shelled or unshelled in bulk at certain markets. If you are carving pumpkins this Halloween, save those seeds for toasting. Don't forget to store them in an air tight container. DELISH!!! Trainer Todd
