Quite possibly the world's first health-food snack, pumpkin seeds are ancient medicinal foods with totally modern health benefits-and a nutty taste and chewy texture that are as appealing as ever.
The ancient Aztecs were onto something by snacking on pumpkin seeds, the Mayans cooked them into sauces and such, and Native Americans used them to treat internal parasites-a practice that was official pharmaceutical protocol in the U.S. until the early 1920s and is still followed today in many parts of the world.
But thanks to being rich in omega-3s, minerals, and other nutrients, pumpkin seeds are much more powerful in what they can do for your health and well-being. Plus raw pumpkin seeds deliver these benefits in spades along with abundant protein and energizing magnesium, all in a nutty, chewy package that's great for snacking out of hand; sprinkling over guacamole, tacos, or enchiladas; tossing into salads or rice dishes; baking into muffins and breads; and so much more.
