and cheap! Pumpkin seed contains these:
- high in pottasium
- vitamin B, C, D, E, K
- beta carotene
- good source of zinc
- unsaturated fatty acids (good fat)
My mom loves to munch on something while watching tv or reading newspaper. So pumpkin seed is 1 of her favorite. Whatever my mom eats, Smellybutt would definitely wants her share too!
The snow-white shell is not too hard but very VERY salty (don't worry, the seed itself is not salty) So we have to remove the salty shell for lil kepohchi (with high speed!) coz she will ask for it non-stop, "zhung oi...zhung oi...". To eat it is very fast, but to remove the shell for her takes time leh. Gotto handle each of the pumpkin seed with TLC!!
Kepohchi being kepohchi lah...she wanted to follow us, using our teeth to break open the shell. Sekali bite on it, she immediately 'bluuueekkk'. Hehehe...want some more or not?
