Description
Pumpkin seeds are edible, flat, oval-shaped green seeds. When removed from the flesh of a pumpkin, they can be rinsed and roasted, either plain or with other flavours such as oils and spices, to create a delicious, crunchy snack.
Nutritional benefits of pumpkin seeds
 
They may be small, but pumpkin seeds are little powerhouses of nutrients and health benefits. Like nuts, pumpkin seeds are a great source of protein and unsaturated fats, including omega-3. They also contain a good range of nutrients including iron, selenium, calcium, B vitamins and beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A.  
Benefits
Pumpkin seeds' biggest claim to fame is that they are an excellent natural source of magnesium and zinc. Just one tablespoon of pumpkin seeds provides:
 
  • Almost 1mg zinc - the recommended daily allowance is 9.5mg for men and 7mg for women  
  • 32mg magnesium – the recommend daily allowance is 300mg for men and 270mg for women
