The Only Reason To Celebrate Halloween: Pumpkin Seeds
October 23, 2012 | Nutrition | M.Chan
Ghosts and ghouls just don't do it for me, but pumpkin seeds do. In fact, it's the only reason I look forward to Halloween. In my opinion, this celebration is a very poor example to children, even if it is only for one evening. Imagine going from house to house dressed as a blood sucking vampire whose only goal is to obtain toxic candy. Then we wonder why our children don't seek worthy role models. So let's change the tune. How about we promote decent nutrition on Halloween and distribute a responsible snack to all the little gremlins, sending them on their way with health rather than sugar. The smallest part of a pumpkin is a power packed nutrition house of goodness. If you're carving pumpkins and throwing out the seeds, you really are missing the best part.

Different people process their feelings in different ways--your emotional style is a fundamental aspect of who you are. It affects more than just your outlook on life; it can affect your very well-being. Many chronic ailments are not the result of germs or genes but are rooted in our emotional biology.
