You probably haven’t eaten pumpkin seeds since you were a kid, but these are perhaps the most nutritious part of the pumpkin! They are a great source of magnesium, which most people are deficient in. One study done in France showed that men who had the highest levels of magnesium had as much as a 40 percent lower risk of early death than those who had low levels of this mineral.

Pumpkin seeds are a super tasty snack and fit in a pocket or purse so you can munch them anywhere, anytime! Read more about pumpkin seeds and their benefits.
