Pumpkin seeds can reduce your LDL levels and increase your serotonin – harvesting some seeds is a perfect excuse to carve yourself a jack-o’-lantern!
Carving Jack-o’-lanterns is a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit… And there’s the added benefit of being leftover with a big bowl of pumpkin guts! If you were never sure what to do with all that mess before, below is a classic method of enjoying your pumpkin seeds. Try different spices for variety like this sweet & spicy version.
- Clean the seeds. After digging out the guts of a medium pumpkin, separate and wash the seeds. This step can take a while but take it as a meditative task. 😉
- Boil the seeds (this step is optional). Boiling the seeds can make them more crunchy and aid in digestion. Bring to boil over medium heat in water with a pinch of salt. Drain and pat dry.
- Season seeds. Toss in ghee or coconut oil and sprinkle with Pink Salt.
- Roast. Set oven to 325F and bake for 10 minutes
