Pumpkin Seeds: Start Your Week with a Something New

I just discovered Pumpkin Seeds, these crunchy bits of goodness a few months ago at our local “Natural Grocers” a Health Food Store in Beaverton, Oregon and all this time, I didn’t realize what a great source of Plant Protein these are. They will be an excellent addition to my oatmeal goop.

The realization came once I reviewed the bottom half of this Plant Protein chart . You can bet my Food Budget that I’m going to be stocking Pumpkin Seeds in my #SakamotoPantry. Heck, the amount of magnesium alone is enough to include this always; magnesium deficiency, especially prevalent in my age group, is linked to insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, coronary heart disease, and osteoporosis; none of which interest me.
