Pepitas are highly nutritious. These little pumpkin seeds are rich in protein, iron and also contain zinc and magnesium and other trace minerals. The oils in these seeds are good for the immune system. So next time you are wanting a little snack, try mixing pepitas to your serving of nuts and dried fruit or just eat them alone. They are delicious!
