Hard to post that when it’s 100 degrees outside, but it is.
While we enjoy pumpkin puree in a can year round (Like Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin http://www4.netrition.com/farmers_market_pumpkin.html), do we give much thought to pumpkin seeds or oil and their benefits?
Cholesterol lowering, great for the skin and minor skin ailments, good for eye health, good for arthritis, good for bladder function.
I ran across a couple of pages with information about them:
Personally, I like the oil as a drizzle over salad, chicken or fish. I tried adding a couple of tablespoons to my homemade mayonnaise, but the green color was rather off-putting, and calling it “Hulk Mayonnaise” didn’t help lol.
Pumpkin seeds, shelled, are a great addition to salads, added to your muffins (mug muffins, too!), you can add them to ground beef for taco type dishes and they add some crunch and flavor as well. I’m thinking my bread-free sausage dressing for Thanksgiving could benefit from them as well.
Have a great day all!
