Pumpkins and fall squash have lots of seeds. Seems a shame to throw them out. They are packed with zinc, iron, omega-3 fats, vitamin E, folate, and magnesium. In other words, very good for the immune system, helping to protect against hormone-based cancers, such as prostate cancer.
The seeds are most edible when roasted. Wash and dry the seeds and toss in a little olive oil. Spread on a baking sheet and roast on low heat for 50-60 minutes. Great for snacking and adding to salads, breakfast cereal, and yogurt.
