Giving up salty, crunchy snack foods is one of the hardest parts of healthy eating. But what if you could replace them with a crunchy, tasty alternative that happened to be nutritious?
Pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are nutty tasting, crunchy, chewy and slightly sweet on their own. Add sea salt, herbs or spices to create different flavor variations. They’re a terrific snack on their own, but they’re REALLY GREAT in a bowl of soup or tossed into a salad, sort of like a healthy crouton substitute – crunch and flavor.
Sprinkle these on dishes like this Butternut Squash Soup to add crunch and flavor!
