Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!
Did your family weekend adventures included carving a jack-o’-lantern? If so, then you probably have a few pumpkin seeds sitting around... (hopefully it didn't get thrown away). Instead of throwing them away, roast them for a Halloween treat that is just as healthy as it is delicious.  You can include your children in this project so they are more likely to try this delicious snack.

Pumpkins seeds are a terrific source of vitamins and minerals that your body needs. They are very high in magnesium and zinc, which will help to keep your digestion tract functioning well and improve your skin, hair and nails. Zinc is also linked to improved sleep patterns and immune system health – perfect for this time of year! 
The best part about this healthy snack is that even your kids will love them. It will be a treat to make them feel good for all of their hard work!
