If you follow the recommended portions from Swami or a book (either BT or GT) diet you're following, you should be in good shape!

I eat quite a few pumpkin seeds myself in salads or a handful here and there for a snack and it hasn't kept me from continuing to drop weight.

a handful a day, keeps the Dr away.....
anything above that measure, if your metabolism is slow, may hinder weight loss.....

Bought myself some green Pumkin Seeds.  Now my question is, are they fattening ? I been eating alot and worry about gaining weight.

While roasted pumpkins seeds are one of my very, very, very, very, very, VERY favorite foods on this earth, I don't care for the raw green ones.  

Just my two cents, but get yourself some Eden Organic Fresh-Roasted-in-the-Shell, lightly salted (with sea salt) Pumpkin Seeds.  Um UM!!!!!  THAT'S what I'm talking about!*  

Next thing, to answer your Q:  Yes, nuts and seeds do have a lot of calories BUT that is because they are also very nutrient-dense!!!!  Pumpkin seeds, for example, are packed with protein, zinc, healthy omega 3 and 6 (and I think 9) fat, and fiber.  You don't want to go too crazy on them, but eating even as much as several handfuls per day would be okay, imho.

I like the roasted-in-the-shell ones by themselves or in salads, as an alternative to croutons.  You can also sprinkle a few as a garnish on top of thick, wintery soups (like pumpkin, of course, or any squash, or pea).  I also occasionally add 'em to my brown basmati rice dishes (at the end, after cooking the rest of the dish, of course).

This time of year, one of life's great joys is to roast your own straight out of the pumpkin.  That's when you know there's a God.  But nowadays, with great, high-quality brands like Eden Organic, you can enjoy them all year.

* edited to add:  added bonus to eating the roasted-in-the-shell pumpkin seeds v. the raw, shelled green ones:  you will naturally be eating fewer calories and more fiber, because the shells are mostly fiber, so you will feel like you ate the same amount, yet secretly (or, not so secretly) you will have consumed, as I just this minute wrote, fewer calories and more fiber.

Day-uuuum, I'm good!

one good thing about them they dont ask for more and more.. then I have them in the fridge and that helps to hide them and keeps them longer.. a few is enough for me.. mmmh


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Do you need to soak pumpkin seeds to get rid of phytic acid or can you just eat them directly? I assume you don't soak the ones that come with the shells, right?

I save the pumpkin and squash seeds whenever I buy a whole pumpkin or squash. I cut the squash in half, scrape out the seeds, roast the halves upside down with a bit of water in the pan. Meanwhile I separate out the stringy stuff from the seeds, then roast the seeds with some salt sprinkled on top. The seeds are done much faster than the vegetables!

They're better for you when soaked as it helps to deactivate certain enzymes that inhibit production of certain enzymes once ingested.  Soak raw, hulled seeds.

Thank you, boar expert!*

* Just a little LOST reference there.  I can't help myself from still making them, even though LOST is dead to me!

I had been saving & sun/air drying the seeds from all the pumpkins we have used for ages now & had never got around to trying any...

As I have lately been making chia seed crackers, simply with chia seeds I grind myself, pinch of mineral salt & water, today I ground some pumpkin seeds & added to mix as well...

Seemed to go ok - no bad skin reaction so far & quite tasty!!
