Toasted Cinnamon Pumpkin Seeds

by Arielle J on April 16, 2013


My new friend, Rachel from Rachel’s Wellness
(who I led a lecture with in FL last week),
posted her toasted pumpkin seed snack
on instagram yesterday.

She prefers hers plain; I prefer
mine with a little umph, so I added
cinnamon and sea salt (the sea salt brings
out the sweetness of the cinnamon + adds minerals)–

Perfect snack since I’m on my Spring Cleanse
(can’t eat wheat or sugar)
+  needed to bring a treat
to my private nutrition lecture
tonight so this recipe is just perfect!


Benefits of pumpkin seeds:
– high in protein, fiber and zinc
– add to cereal, on top of salads or
eat as a snack out of your hand!
– cleansing + great for detoxing
– cinnamon + coconut oil – revs up the metabolism + fights colds
