Be a seed saver

Considering that more than 1.3 billion pounds of pumpkins are produced in our country every year, you would assume that the seeds coming from all those pumpkins have a bright future. Unfortunately, the reality is different.

Most of them end up in the garbage. If you think that carving pumpkins is a nice activity that brings the family closer, please, don’t throw away the seeds. Instead, find ways to save them. Besides, pumpkin seeds are super healthy and tasty. According to nutritionists, pumpkin seeds are very high in magnesium, a key mineral for your heart health.

Just wash and dry them. As soon as you complete these steps, sprinkle your pumpkin seeds with salt and pour some olive oil over them; and finally, toast them in the oven. You can do the same thing with butternut squash and acorn seeds too.
