Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Before you throw away the seeds from your pumpkin, you may want to consider how many health benefits there are in those little seeds and start adding them to your diet.

Magnesium, manganese, copper, protein, zinc are some of the nutrients. Plus they are an antioxidant, contain fiber, may help with heart, liver and bone health and may prevent insomnia.

And roasting them makes a tasty and nutritious snack.

Mix them with other nuts, seeds and dried fruit.

Sprinkle them on salads, vegetables, or on crackers with a non-dairy cheese.

Plus I like this recipe because it does not use any oils or added fats.
