Let's not forget how beneficial these are. Pumpkin seeds are super duper great for you. They are loaded with protein yes, but there is so much more. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of zinc which helps immunity as well as eye and skin health. If you pair them with a carb like a piece of fruit can help with your melatonin and serotonin which helps provide you with a great night sleep so make sure to include this as a dinner plan. And eating them raw provides you with a lot of omega-3s!
Add 2 T of nutritional yeast for a cheesy taco meat!

1 1/2 t cumin
3/4 t chili powder
3/4 t coriander
1/2 t onion powder
1 1/2 T Mrs. Braggs Amino Acids
a pinch of red pepper flakes
Put all ingredients into your food processor and mix. Add a little more Mrs. Braggs until it becomes a consistency that it sticks together when you put it between your fingers.
I like serving this best with a romaine leaf and a little pico de gallo or guacamole for a great taco. Paul likes adding raw taco meat to his salads.
