Pumpkin seeds provide you with healthy fats but are also a good source of magnesium and zinc. The seeds are one of the best sources of natural magnesium. Adequate magnesium intake can help to control blood pressure, help form healthy bones and help to regulate blood sugar levels. They have been linked to a reduced risk of certain cancers and may improve prostate and bladder health. Sprout and roast for maximum health benefits and make sure that you purchase organic seeds.

Scoop the seeds from a Halloween pumpkin. These are usually thrown out so ask your carvers for the seeds. Clean the seeds, rinse and soak overnight. Dry on a clean dish cloth and place on parchment paper in an oven on low heat for an hour or so. Sprinkle with salt and stir the seeds once in a while during the baking process. Bake on low heat until dry and crunchy.
