HEALTHY BITES: Don't forget to roast the seeds after you scoopout the middle of the pumpkin. They're packed with fibre and protein and make a tasty, filling snack when you're on the go. Just rinse and dry them, toss with some oil, season with sea salt and roast on a baking sheet for 20-30 minutes at 350º F, stirring often, until the seeds are crisp and golden.
