I absolutely love the flavor combo of chili powder, cumin and chipotle. So, I knew that I need to vessel to carry out this craving of mine and pumpkin seeds were the target.
Protein packed snack
Pumpkin seeds carry a good quality of protein. In roughly 100 grams of these wondrous seeds, they will provide 54% of recommended daily allowance of protein. I have found it so interesting throughout the years that when others find out that a person doesn’t eat animal protein, the whereabouts of protein is always the big concern.
But I get it. It is very logical for the typical SAD (standard American diet) eater to be confused about nutrients when others start eliminating food groups. In truth, we always need to seek about balance regardless of how we eat. And hopefully in the long run, we are all choosing to consume foods that are healing for our own bodies… not what the latest trend is. That can be tough though.
It’s not easy to hold back and not jump on the current band wagon of what is popular today. We just need to stop, take a step back, and turn inward… honoring our bodies with nutrient dense foods that will be each of us optimal health. Agreed?
