The seed of good form

In everyday rush, stopping the pace to fit a meal at the right times has been a luxury. Hence it is right to expose ourselves to the threat of the infamous snack foods. How about having a snack on hand that has nothing hidden - quite the opposite?

When preparing a light recipe with pumpkin, know that its use can be complete. That's because seeds can be your most nutritious part. Little ones are rich in the amino acid tryptophan, which in the body becomes serotonin, helping to ensure a good night's sleep. They are also full of fiber and nutrients such as iron, zinc, magnesium and omega 3. Their high levels of easily digestible proteins help stabilize blood sugar when consumed in small amounts throughout the day. And it is the stabilization of blood sugar that helps in weight loss.

Toasted, they are delicious. You can buy them ready-made. But it is best to do it at home, as you can enjoy the heated oven while preparing another recipe. Try pure or even speckled on your salad or pasta dish - you'll be amazed! For more light snacks, see also the recipes for crispy zucchini sticks or chips.
