View Full Version : raw Pumpkin Seeds

Hi, i am low in Iron and Calcium, and have read that Pumpkin Seeds are high in both of these. The question is, will say 100g a day of pumpkin seeds give one enough Calcium and Iron? I know dark leafy veg are another source which i do use in a smoothy when i can get hold of them, but usually i can't get the best stuff (ie kale, collards, chard etc..) i can usually only get hold of spinach and just general lettuces.
So if anyone can let me know if say 100g pumpkin seeds (i'll probably make it into a seed milk) can supplement one with enough calcioum and rion, that would be great!

Yes, you will get enough iron from those seeds. Soak them first, to increase digestibility.
Greens are essential and irreplacable. If you can't get good greens where you are, grow your own greens, grow your own wheatgrass, or take a green supplement powder.

Why is it that the pumpkin seeds you buy are green while the ones in the pumpkin are white? I've never understood that. Plus, they're 100 times better in the pumpkin. Are they really different varieties?

thanks for your help guys. ive read that pumpkin seeds that appear white are just those with there shells on, and once the shells are removed you'll get the green pumpkin seed. Well, ive now ordered some raw, organic pumpkin seeds.. hopefully i actually get them quickly!! And hopefully.. they will taste nice as a seedmilk!

Hope you get your level or calcium and iron. If you can, you can do wheat grass juice. If you don't have pollen allergi, bee pollen also. And, you can ask your whole food store to carry e3live. This is costly but it cans be a life saver when you are in a rush etc....
