Greenies don't like to waste a thing, and pumpkins are no exception. When carving a jack-o-lantern, you'll want to roast your seeds for a delicious snack. Pumpkin seeds have been called one of the worlds healthiest snacks. The World Health Organization touts the benefits of this super-food because it is high in zinc.
Whole roasted, unshelled pumpkin seeds contain about 10 milligrams of zinc per 3.5 ounces, and shelled roasted pumpkin seeds (which are often referred to pumpkin seed kernels) contain about 7-8 milligrams.
You also have pumpkin pulp in the interior of the pumpkin. Use a food processor to create a kind of slurry that you can use in baking or as a rejuvenating facial mask.
Don't forget to compost your jack-o-lantern.
