What do you do with your leftover pumpkins?

When carving jack-o-lanterns, be sure to save the seeds since they are packed with Omega 3 fatty acids that build strong immunity, and enhance your skin and hair’s natural beauty.  They are a good source of protein which helps to stabilize blood sugar levels should you have overindulged in Halloween candy.  They also help with weight loss if you really overdid it this season.  High in the amino acid tryptophan, which converts into sleep-inducing melatonin, snack on pumpkin seeds to ensure you enjoy a great night’s sleep after all the Halloween festivities are over. Read on to learn how easy it is to make your own toasted pumpkin seeds.

However, because I have had short hair for the majority of my life,  a glass of red wine was needed to ease the transition. (or that’s the excuse I made this time!)

As promised, here is the recipe for my Roasted Vegetable Root Mix. This one came from having an over abundance of root veggies that I needed to do something with, so feel free to modify all ingredients to match your tastes and what you have in the kitchen. Nothing here needs to be exact.  This dish is so healthy and vibrant…. even my two year old loves it!

(And who are down right fun to get to know.)  A few days ago, I posted about the benefits of fall foods, so check out my finds and see what I picked up!
