Even if you overeat pumpkin seeds, you are still providing your body with good nutrition—most of the time.
Pumpkin seeds without added oil, butter, salt, or seasonings provide a nice boost of both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat, known as healthy fats.
Healthy eating experts recommend that we replace saturated fat foods with foods that provide mono- and polyunsaturated fats. Pumpkin seed oil is also nutritious.
The best thing about pumpkin seeds is the dose of diet-friendly fiber you get when you eat them.
