After you carve a pumpkin, save the guts!
Pumpkin seeds are packed with protein, at 12 grams per cup and 12.4 grams of fat per cup. A half a cup is an easy snack that, like almonds, can fill you up and keep you energized.
Watch out though: only eat whole, roasted pumpkin seeds - buying a bag of kernels will QUADRUPLE your calories and fat, making it not worth it at all! Read the labels and MAKE SURE you're getting whole seeds, or make them at home.
Here's a simple recipe for pumpkin seeds:
- When you carve your pumpkins, rinse out the guts from the seeds in a bowl.
- Preheat the oven to 300* F.
- Toss seeds in a bowl with light vegetable oil and a pinch of salt.
- Spread seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
- Let cool, serve.
Tip: Divide up a small handful of seeds into zip-lock baggies to grab as a snack on the go. Depending on the size of your pumpkin, you can have seeds until Thanksgiving!
