Affectionately known as “pepitas,” the little green kernel inside the big white shell of the pumpkin seed is a favorite snack because of its taste . . . or WAIT, is it because of its health benefits?
These pintsized pockets of tastiness carry some powerful nutrients and have been utilized by humans for nourishment dating back to 7,000 B.C.!
These little beauties are good for your heart, high in protein, high in iron, and are anti-inflammatory!
Oh, and did I mention that they serve as a sleep aid! No more chemically induced sleep, just have a few handfuls of pumpkin kernels : ) and provide yourself with other health benefits in the process!
Try the MAPLE pumpkin kernels for a touch of sweetness.
