Pumpkin seeds are an overlooked source of protein with 8 grams per ¼ cup. In addition, they are an excellent source of magnesium which helps reduce fluid retention and bloating, aids in the regulation of serotonin (the “feel good” neurotransmitter) and ensures a consistent, normal blood pressure. Plus, they aid crunch, a little saltiness and a distinct flavor to dishes and snacks.
