Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds are a great source of zinc which helps to maintain a healthy immune system. These seeds also contain important nutrients that support a healthy prostate and promote joint health.
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. cumin, curry powder, cayenne, or black pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with tin foil. Remove strings from pumpkin seeds and put into a small bowl. Dry with a paper towel and mix in oil, salt and spices (optional). Put seeds on baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes (or until golden brown). Toss seeds after about 10 minutes to cook evenly.
