The one vegetable Americans just can not get enough of in October is pumpkin. Our favorite coffee shops have pumpkin lattes, pumpkins adorn our front porches and patios, pumpkins of all shapes and sizes fill the grocery stores. We love pumpkin. One part of the delicious and nutritious pumpkin that is often overlooked are the seeds. Pumpkin seeds pack a powerful nutritious punch. They are one of the most complete sources of plant-based protein available, high in iron and zinc.
When I was a kid, I remember when we carved our Jack O’ Lanterns the week before Halloween my mother saved the seeds and roasted them in the oven. She would season them with a little butter and garlic salt. Every year my bother and I looked forward to this treat. Kathie Pelliccio, founder of SuperSeedz takes the roasted pumpkin seed a step further. She has created a line of shelled, roasted pumpkin seeds in a variety of mouth watering flavors.
SuperSeedz Gourmet Pumpkin seeds come in 9 different flavors:
Maple Sugar & Sea Salt
