Pumpkin seeds (another quick post)

This salad was inspired by DDD‘s Raw Raw for Spring! Crimson Salad with Pecans and Pumpkin Seeds and by Ezmy‘s use of pumpkin seeds here.

Salad: spinach, onion, sauerkraut, tomato, nutritional yeast and sunflower/pumpkin seeds with lemon garlic vinaigrette.

Salad: baby spinach, chickpeas, red onion, tomato, sauerkraut, nutritional yeast and sunflower/pumpkin seeds with lemon garlic vinaigrette.

The Herb and Spice recently started carrying “Go Raw” products which supposedly do not contain nuts, and in spite of their ridiculous price, I decided to pick up some sprouted pumpkin seeds. As Ezmy mentioned, pumpkin seeds are a fantastic source of Zinc. They are also a great source of protein, monounsaturated fat,  Manganese and Magnesium. Many traditional medicines use pumpkin seeds for a variety of purposes.
