Read time: 2 minutes

Now that you’ve carved your Jack O’Lantern you may be wondering how to roast pumpkin seeds. It’s simple to turn the ooey gooey innards into a salty, crunchy treat in just a few steps. 

Pumpkin seeds are a great source of magnesium, a mineral that plays an important role in glucose metabolism. Diabetes may lead to increased loss of magnesium through urine, so it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough. And if you’re trying to prevent diabetes, eating a diet high in magnesium could significantly lower your risk.

Once you’ve learned how to roast pumpkin seeds, here are some ideas for what you can do with your scrumptious treat. Add them to the following foods for a bonus crunch:

  • Salads
  • Soups
  • Oatmeal
  • Granola
  • Cookie batter
  • Bread dough
  • Hummus
  • Guacamole

If you’re living with diabetes, consider checking your blood sugar before and after trying a new recipe to learn more about your personal glycemic response to a food. If you have any questions, reach out to your One Drop clinical health coach. Happy Halloween!
