The other day my friend, who is a walking book of knowledge when it comes the the health benefits of food, posted a tidbit on Facebook about pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds). I have been eating pepitas forever. I got sick of sunflower seeds one day and decided to try pepitas, tasty. Turns out these babies are nutritional powerhouses. Vitamins, minerals, proteins, and essential fatty acids, even anti-microbial properties, per her FB post.
Who knew? Not me. So I thought I would pass the good news on to you, just in case you didn't know either.

I top my salad at lunch, bake them into granola bars or just eat them out of the bag. See those beets of to the side? Turns out beets are crazy good for you too. Yesterday, I was just showing off my health food skills
Have you tried pepitas? What do you put them on?
