Pumpkin Seeds

When carving pumpkins as a child, my family and I would always scoop out the pumpkin seeds and roast them in the oven until they were nice and crispy. Such a fun, easy snack to make with your own kids now. How do you enjoy your pumpkin seeds or do you make a soup with the leftover pumpkin?

Shop the Colors of the Rainbow

10896406

When shopping, fill your cart with all the colors of the rainbow to keep your body at it’s healthiest. Here’s a quick and easy way to know what you need by the color of your fruits and veggies:

Blues & Purples: Help to keep your memory sharp and to reduce the risk of many types of cancer (i.e. blueberries, blackberries, purple grapes, plums, raisins, and eggplant).

Greens: Protect your bones, teeth, reduce the risk of osteoporosis, as well as keeping your eyesight sharp (i.e. kiwi, honeydew, spinach, kale, broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and lettuce). The deeper the color the better. 

Whites: Lower your LDL (bad cholesterol) and reduce risk of heart disease (i.e. pears, bananas, mushrooms, cauliflower, onions, and garlic).

Reds: Help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and improve the blood flow to the heart (i.e. watermelon, strawberries, raspberries, red apples).

Yellows & Oranges: Boost your immune system and help to prevent eye diseas (i.e. oranges, grapefruit, peaches, cantaloupe, mangoes, pineapple, squash, carrots).

 

Fuel your body with the good stuff!! Your body heals from what you feed it! Use only the best!
