Roast Those Pumpkin Seeds
When you carve your pumpkin, don’t toss the seeds; roast them. There are several recipes online. An easy way to a healthy snack is to clean the seeds, toss them with some melted butter or olive oil, spread on a cookie sheet in a single layer, and roast for about 45 minutes at 300 degrees. TIP: Salt or use a season of choice before roasting, so the flavors stick.
