Pumpkins are synonymous with fall and a great source of antioxidants like beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A and gives the plant its vibrant orange color. But the seeds are edible and nutrient-rich, too. Not only can they provide a great texture for soups and salads, but they’re high in magnesium, zinc and heart-healthy omega-3’s. Here, seven ways to incorporate pumpkin seeds into your diet.
