Pumpkin Seeds...

$3.99 lb price good thru 10/27/10

Did you know Pumpkin Seeds could do all this:
Bursting with B vitamins
Pumpkin seeds are also a great source of five of the B vitamins. One-quarter cup of roasted seeds contributes:
* 11% daily allowance of B1 (0.12 mg)
* 16% daily allowance of B2 (0.18 mg)
* 41% daily allowance of niacin (5.8 mg)
* 4% daily allowance of B6 (0.05 mg)
* 8% daily allowance of folic acid (32 mcg)
Packed with Protein
That same roasted handful also bumps up your protein by 19 grams--that's about 39 percent of the daily recommended amount of protein.
A Plant Source of Iron
Increase your iron by 8.5 milligrams (almost half the RDA) each time you eat 1/4 cup roasted seeds.
Rich in Monounsaturated and Polyunsaturated Fat
Most of the fatty acids in pumpkin seeds come from monounsaturated fat, and the polyunsaturated fats are omega6 fatty acids. One-quarter cup contributes 7.4 grams of monounsaturated fat and 10.9 grams of polyunsaturated fat.
Calories and Fiber
A typical serving of roasted pumpkin seeds (1/4 cup) contains 296 calories and 2g fiber (mostly insoluble).
